Is there a way for me to set the "Origin" of packages I install (as
supported by, say, "aptitude search '!~ODebian'")? Is this fully supported?
I'm running a Woody 3.0r1 system installed from CDs, since I have a very
slow and expensive internet connection. I want to update some of my
software to unstable, but build the packages from source to avoid
dependancies (like a massive glibc upgrade). I'd like to be able to see
which packages I've build locally - right now they look just like official
Debian packages! I've tried making a local package repository, and
specifying "Origin: Local" in the "Release" file, but that doesn't seem to
work (aptitude still shows their origin as Debian).
What about if I make a change to the source and recompile? Can I reflect
that meaningfully in the version information?
