Is this the correct way to get past the kernel/plymouth war

Postby Deleted User 2763 » 20 Jun 2013 12:33

Hi guys,
(back after a 2 week vacation in Italy)
I wanted to install say:
3.9-6.towo.1-siduction-amd64

I created /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00local
and added:
APT::Default-Release "unstable";

I then created
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.ist and added:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian experimental main

installed plymouth:
sudo apt-get install -t experimental plymouth

and everything seems fine.

So my question is will /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00local keep me "sane" on unstable? Or will experimental sneak in if I don't explicitly ask for it?

Thanks.

What's the output of this?

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/preferences
I don't think editing 00local is necessary; your apt preferences should control what repostiory you're installing packages from.

Ah yes...
Apt-pinning..
I was hoping to stear away from that ;)

I'm thinking of re-imaging my desktop and just be a little more conservative. It'll take me about 15 minutes to get back where I was and with a more conservative admin role;)
Thanks.

you don't need Apt-Pinning :P the idea of the topic was exactly warning against it if using experimental;

either with your method or with the one greywolf proposed (or mine) you reach the same goal: keep experimental enabled and only install from there when explicitly said
