Found a nice newbie-friendly article on apt pinning, which enables the user to prioritize the repos in /etc/apt/sources.list instead of installing/upgrading things simply based on the versioning of the packages:


One immediate use I thought of is to assign the highest priority to jpmatrix's custom repo, so that 2or0's mplayer won't get replaced by apt-get dist-upgrade. smile.gif

VERY Helpful, helps with gnumeric too which is broken in armel.

Whats the soure entry for 2or0's custom repo? I have jpmatrix one mentioned in your signature, noticed mplayer wasn't in there.
