How to hold some apps in old version.

Postby szamot83 » Mon Dec 15, 2008 1:27 pm

Hello,
Today I have upgraded my system to Felicia. I don't have new computer, so I want to hold Azureus in his version from Hardy. This version works very good for me.

I was trying hold it in that way:

sudo aptitude hold azureus

It is working but only for aptitude, I don't know how to hold it in "update-manager" and "mintupdate". When I run update manager (or mint update) it always try to upgrade Azureus. Anyone know the way how to hold this app?

Best regards


P.S. Sorry for my English.

Thank you for your advice.

It work only for update-manager, but it is ok for me. I will disable mintupdate, and I'll use update-manager for performing updates.

Thanks again.
