that's what I'm doing, but nothing gets updated!! My /etc/apt/sources.list has the following: – user11681 Mar 1 '11 at 22:08
it has all of the natty lines in them, but when I do an "apt-get update " and "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" it doesn't upgrade anything... – user11681 Mar 1 '11 at 22:14
Have you filed a bug report? – RolandiXor Mar 1 '11 at 23:14

The best option would be to download the newly commited code using bazaar, this can be done by downloading the unity branch from Launchpad, just execute the following command in your desired destination, having Bazaar (bzr packave) installed

bzr branch lp:unity

To install Bazaar:

sudo apt-get install bzr

You should then configure and build the code, for doing this you should read the README and INSTALL files.
