LLE10099 : Howto configure apt for pinning software from testing.

Symptom:

You want to install software from testing on stable but stable should be the default.

Cause:

none

Solution:

This can be done by creating a file anc dropping it in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/

e.g. I made a file calles 10debconfwim with the contents:

APT::Default-Release "stable";
APT::Cache-Limit "16777216";

Now you can install software from testing with:

apt-get install -t unstable packagename

e.g.

The Java EE 5 Application Server Glassfish is only in testing. This J2EE environment can be installed on stable with the command:

apt-get install -t unstable glassfish-appserv
