Pinning package versions [SOLVED]


Does pinning work in Ubuntu ?

I added

Code:
Package: kino
Pin: 0.80*
Pin-Priority: 1001
to


Code:
/etc/apt/preferences
Yet Adept still tries to tell me I have an update to Kino 0.9X waiting.

Did I do something wrong here or pinning isnt supported in (K)Ubuntu ?

This should read

Code:
Pin: version 0.80*
Then it works fine
