How do I prevent an installed deb package from being upgraded in Ubuntu?
I refer to Vice 2.1.deb
I know the Synaptic version is also 2.1 but it wont work. I remove .vice from my home folder and completely remove vice in synaptic.
Then I install Vice 2.1.deb and all works perfectly.
I locked the Vice 2.1.deb vice in Synaptic but when I do update and upgrade it still wants to upgrade vice.
I think the lock feature may only work on native packages. Please someone correct me if I am wrong on that.
