i've built custom packages for iproute and iptables to support the HTB qdisc  and the IMQX target  respectively. these are to be used on a productive system (after serious testing). 1. http://luxik.cdi.cz/~devik/qos/htb/htbman.htm 2. http://luxik.cdi.cz/~patrick/ i am aware of "holding" packages, but i'd like to somehow automate this in the version numbering/package name. i've thought about creating two new packages, iproute-htb and iptables-imqx, which both replace the original via debian/control, but that's too much administrative overhead. so i've given them different version numbers 20010824-7 ---> 1:20010824-7.htb 1.2.5-7 ---> 1:1.2.5-7.imqx (note the epochs) i am not quite sure if epochs will do what i want in this case. if i had iptables version 1.2.5-1.imqx installed, then there's the danger that 1.2.5-2 or 1.2.6 will replace the custom package and thus remove IMQX support. i'd like to guard against this. will epoch's do as i plan? -- martin; (greetings from the heart of the sun.) \____ echo mailto: !#^."<*>"|tr "<*> mailto:" net@madduck ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
