how to put packages on hold -- permanently
Some packges, for example nano, tasksel, aptitude or
texlive-pstricks-doc, I do not want to have installed.
However, when I set them on hold by
echo nano hold | dpkg --set-selections
echo tasksel hold | dpkg --set-selections
echo aptitude hold | dpkg --set-selections
echo texlive-pstricks-doc hold | dpkg --set-selections
the hold-settings are ignored by dselect or by apt-get.
Is there anywhere a setting that I can make dselect and apt-get obey
to my hold-settings permanently?
