Howto install selected Debian packages from other releases (apt-pinning)

Posted 11-11-2011 at 08:44 AM by bittner (Notes on Linux)

Mixing releases can be necessary when you need a more up-to-date version of a software in a system running on package management and not (yet) providing later package versions.

For example, we need the latest git on your Debian Lenny system, because you updated your Eclipse plugins, and now the git integration refuses to work with your old client. Shoot! Let's check what to do to fix this...

Lossless discussion revisited
