LMDE repos and Squeeze

Postby malayo » Sun Feb 06, 2011 8:59 am

how do i do apt-pinning to avoid conflict with squeeze's packages?

what should i put in /etc/apt/preferences ?

would it be something like below:

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release a=debian
Pin-Priority: 200

i think i'm on a wrong topic since i'm not converting squeeze to lmde but merely using lmde repo to get the latest thunderbird and firefox on squeeze with the preferences file like so:

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release a=squeeze
Pin-Priority: 300

Package: *
Pin: release a=debian
Pin-Priority: 200


so squeeze packages will have a higher priority upon package installation/upgrade

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release o=linuxmint
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.linuxmint.com
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release o=testing
Pin-Priority: 700
