upgrade-all trying to downrgrade from KDE-4.10.2


I used Alien Bob's excellent 4.10.2 packages, which is great, but now whenever I do a slackpkg upgrade-all it tries to 'upgrade' all KDE packages back to 4.8.5.

This is clearly not what I want. Is this intended behaviour, if so how can I easily distinguish security patches from these unwanted 'upgrades'. If not, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Read the ChangeLog and update packages individually. Or blacklist alien's ktown (or whatever substring that matches Eric's KDE packages) in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist.
