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.
