    Configuring apt to use saucy kernel in raring

    Added this to /etc/apt/sources.list
    Code:
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main
    deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ saucy main
    Created /etc/apt/preferences with this in it
    Code:
    Package: *
    Pin: release a=saucy
    Pin-Priority: -10
    
    Package: linux-image,linux-firmware,linux-headers-generic,linux-image-generic,linux-libc-dev
    Pin: release a=saucy
    Pin-Priority: 700
    It does not shows the packages as a update, i could force the upgrade in synaptic but i want it to auto update

    EDIT:
    Solution (-10 overrides it, should use 100):
    Code:
    Package: *
    Pin: release a=saucy
    Pin-Priority: 100
    
    Package: linux-generic,linux-firmware,linux-headers-generic,linux-image-generic,linux-libc-dev
    Pin: release a=saucy
    Pin-Priority: 500

    1. You should replace editing /etc/apt/sources.list with creating a file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/saucy.list
    2. You should replace /etc/apt/preferences with creating a file /etc/apt/preferences.d/saucy.pref

    Rather than doing a full-upgrade (which results in broken packages), I only upgraded the following packages:

    1. linux-generic
    2. linux-image-generic
    3. linux-headers-generic
    4. linux-image-extra-x.xx.x-x-generic
    5. linux-firmware
    6. linux-libc-dev

    i.e.

    sudo aptitude install linux-generic linux-image-generic linux-headers-generic linux-firmware linux-libc-dev

    After that I disabled the saucy repository again.
