Thank you for this. I've been wanting an easy to understand guide to app pinning so this is great.

Re: Apt Pinning and You: Living on the Edge with #!

Nice one smile Despite Squeeze offering greater stability I can see many wanting to try new packages before they hit backports.

I can feel another sticky coming on but remember, you use this guide at your own peril!

Re: Apt Pinning and You: Living on the Edge with #!

It is commonly said on the Debian forum 

"If you break it you get to keep both pieces"


There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

No, it still installs the same version. I have just installed chrome dev version and removed chromium-browser. Thanks.

Re: Apt Pinning and You: Living on the Edge with #!

okay. so I've added the repositories and can install stuff. Right now I'm trying to install xfce4.8 and it's giving lots of errors saying that it requires orage and stuff with a higher version so I typed those in too and it gave me LOTS of other ones that I really don't want to have to type in too. is there a easy way to do this?

EDIT: nevermind did a man apt-get roll

sudo apt-get install xfce4 -t unstable

that worked fine. it's installing stuff right now.

Re: Apt Pinning and You: Living on the Edge with #!

What command did you use to install xfce 4.8? Try this:

sudo apt-get -t unstable install xfce4
