Re: Removing packages from unofficial repositories
Hi all, I recently decided to migrate my Debian system away from
deb-multimedia.org, where official packages exist. I used apt preferences
to help me downgrade packages from deb-multimedia back to Debian testing,
where an alternative version from testing exists. However, I would expect
that most users would not have the patience to do this via apt
and if there is an easier way, I was not aware of it.
AFAIK the apt_preferences method is rather simple:
Pin: release o=Debian
With that setting 'apt-get dist-upgrade' downgrades DMO packages to
official ones. At least it did in my case.
For me, finding out the correct preference setting was the hardest part
With best regards,
