Holding a package update from slackpkg


Hi there.

I recently built libgpod from source to enable some features need for my ipod touch. Now when I want to update using slackpkg, it would like to replace libgpod. Sure I can untick it and let the upgrade run it's course. Problem! One day I am going to forget to do this. Is there anyway I can tell slackpkg to ignore this?

I am subscribed to the mailing list, any update I see to libgpod I can reinstall again from source, so this is not a problem.

Thanks Guys and Gels

Add the name of that package to /etc/slackpkg/blacklist and slackpkg will ignore any updates to it.
