ok the new version of soundkonverter in maverick seems to me lame beyond belief so i want to hang on to the soundkonverter.3.8 version which was on lucid so i have installed it


MY QUESTION IS is there a way to never have update manager trying to update it

unclicking it every time i want to do my weekly update with update manager could be a massive pain in the rear


how would i go about that?

Yes, you can exclude certain packages from being updated.

Go to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager. Find the package you wish to exclude from updates, and click on it. From the Package menu, select Lock Version.

I'm locking the version for the PHP5.2.10 before updating to 10.04 but it still updating to 5.3.2. I need the 5.2.10 for my Drupal 6.19. I only selected the ones I need, do I have to select all of them to keep it from updating?
