- Subject: setup.exe: force installation of specific package versions?
I run setup unattended as e.g.
setup.exe --quiet-mode --packages aria2,atool,autoconf,...
This works great, except for one thing: There are some packages for which
the "current" versions are broken, at least for me, so I want to keep the
"prev" or some other already-installed version of the package. Is there a
way to specify in the setup invocation that I want a particular version of
a particular package?
For example, I'd like to write
setup.exe --quiet-mode --packages bzr=2.3.1-1,openssh=prev,...
I've tried to run that, but it doesn't work - everything between the = and
the next comma is ignored. So the current versions of those packages
always get installed.
Is there a way to do this that's not documented yet? If not, is there any
inclination to add it?
