well I am still using sid and bodhi packages but I forgot to post here....I posted in the smxi area that you need a good apt-pinning system so here is what you might like to try to see if they play together?

cat of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list

:: Quote ::

deb sid main contrib non-free
deb wheezy contrib non-free
# deb lucid main

no other changes needed for me....and I am not suggesting you have to use virtualbox....but a rough explanation of apt-pinning

when smxi run the update command it gets packages ----if duplicates exist---from the highest mentioned repository.

unfortunately bodhi sometimes updates and maintains a few packages that in the past were a problem but now I force only debian packages onto my system and updates only grab bodhi packages if
a) they are installed
b) they are updated
c) not updated in debian repository
d) very rarely ....a new dependency to an existing bodhi package

(a) refers to the fact I have not installed every bodhi package

good luck
