How to depend on a given version but not a revision ?
Hi list !
This is probably a stupid question to ask, but I have 2 homemade debs,
one is depending on the other (=1.0.7), but the other now have the
revision number "2" instead of "1" (version is 1.0.7), and now apt
homemade2: Depends: homemade1 (= 1.0.7) but 1.0.7-2 is to be
But I do not want to put Depends homemade2 (>= 1.0.7) because there is a
1.0.8 wich is not functionnal. I just thought = 1.0.7 would mean :
version 1.0.7, the later revision the better, but I just read
debian-policy (chapter 5.6.11) where things looks less simple.
So the question is : How do you say that version must match a given one,
and revision number must be taken as high as posible ?
