Weblog entry #44 for Utumno
I host a small phpbb2-powered forum. It is modified by myself (I remember 2 years ago I spent some 2 days applying various source-based patches so that for instance one can send files to the forum, modifying the theme and translating various icons, replacing phpbb's default MSN with Gadu-Gadu which is a instant messanging system popular in Poland ). So I have put the 3 phpbb2-* packages on hold and apt-get has always honored that. Today however I decided to finally switch to aptitude:
aptitude update aptitude safe-upgrade
and... turns out aptitude does not honor apt-get's 'hold' status. It merrily went on and upgraded my phpbb2 and all my changes are gone.
Blindly trying 'aptitude rollback phpbb2' resulted in
This aptitude does not have Super Cow Powers
Now what? Any advice?
