|I followed a guide on ubuntu forums a while ago to install amsn with antialiased fonts and other goodies.
A while after I did a dist-upgrade whch installed a newer version of amsn which went back to the crappy, blocky look so I re-did what I did before and pinned amsn in synaptic to stop it being upgraded.
Now this works fine when upgrading with synaptic but if I do a dist-upgrade via the command line it wants to upgrade amsn still.
I've tried adding it to /etc/apt/preferences but it still wants to upgrade.
Here is the preferences file -
Pin: version 0.95-1
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=experimental
What am I doing wrong?
Apologies, I've sorted it out. There are theme and plugin packages with the same version which is why I put the * after amsn.
After removing the * amsn is now being kept back when doing dist-upgrade.
