Packages from Unstable

When you need a new package that is in unstable, you can follow this procedure.

enter /target chroot

The installer does the install the directory /target.

You can get there before you reboot or by using the rescue mode

download & install package

Finding the right URL of a package without apt is somewhat hard. Point a browser to https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/ and dig deeper from there. You might end up with an URL like https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/i/initramfs-tools/initramfs-tools_0.73_all.deb so do

wget https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/i/initramfs-tools/initramfs-tools_0.73_all.deb

to get it in your directory. With

dpkg -i initramfs-tools_0.73_all.deb

will it be installed.

When more packages are needed, you have to install them the same way.
