slackpkg and jre upgrade
Since the security warning SSA:2005-170-01 regarding jdk and jre, I can no longer use slackpkg to automatically follow the -stable tree.
I manually installed jre-1_5_0_03-i586-1 as per SSA. From that moment on, slackpkg insists on downgrading to jre-1_5_0_01-i586-1.tgz.
I then tried to backlist jre-1_5_0_01-i586-1.tgz so that the downgrading attempts would stop by issuning "slackpkg blacklist jre-1_5_0_01-i586-1.tgz". But that blacklists all jre upgrades which is not what I wanted. Manually tinkering with /etc/slackpkg/blacklist did not help either.
Anybody else having the same problem?
