That gives me something like: i A e2fsprogs 1.41.3-1 1.41.3-1 However, the lines I'd like to change look like: --\ Versions of e2fsprogs (2) i A 1.41.3-1 p A 1.41.9-1 (the last two) I was hoping to be able to get something like: --\ Versions of e2fsprogs (2) i A 1.41.3-1 (now, stable) p A 1.41.9-1 (testing, unstable) or, at least: --\ Versions of e2fsprogs (2) i A 1.41.3-1 (stable) p A 1.41.9-1 (testing) I'm read the manual, and I'm fairly sure "%t" is what I want, and I could use "%i" in a pinch but Package-Display-Format seems the wrong place; E.g., the lines I want to change don't appear to have the "%p" escape in them. Are you saying I should be able to simply append "(%t)" after "%v %V" to get what I desire? -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
