- Subject: setup overwriting ?experimental? installed packages
I must be missing something obvious, yell (as I know you will) if so.
When I've installed something newer than "current", like perl 5.8 or
gcc 3.x, each time I use the setup program I have to make sure to
individually mark each of those packages as "keep" or they will
be replaced by the "current" packages, like perl 5.6 or gcc 2.95.
This is time-consuming, error-prone, and frustrating.
What have I missed? How to say generically "I want what I've
already got left alone".
