Re: holding packages
I put the following in /usr/local/bin apt and can do many simple
apt install foo bar
apt remove foo bar
apt hold foo bar
apt unhold foo bar
apt show foo bar
apt search foo
I'm sure it could be made more flexible. If anyone improves it,
please send the changes back to me.
case $1 in
(while [ $# -gt 1 ]; do echo "$2" hold; shift; done) | dpkg --set-selections
(while [ $# -gt 1 ]; do echo "$2" install; shift; done) | dpkg --set-selections
echo Unknown option: $1.
