Hi Gary

You probably need to do two things.

1) In order to update from Core Updates Testing you need to enable it as 
an Update media by ticking Updates next to it. You need to use 'expert' 
mode for this with the command below as root:

drakrpm-edit-media --expert

Tick the Update box and also enable it with the Enable box.

2) You will need to update the media so new packages are shown.
Look in the file menu, while you have the window open, for Update. Place 
a tick next to Core Updates Testing and click the update button.

You should then find you can install what you need from Core Updates 
Testing, or skip step 2 if just updating as it updates the media first 

Please don't update everything from Core Updates Testing, only what you 
need, and remember to disable it when you have done so.

Could you leave your feedback here please:
