I am looking for a way to tell apt (Version apt-0.5.15lorg3.2-34.1 on
Suse 10.2 and 9.3) to NOT delete packages that are no longer available
in a repository.
Til now I got the answer that putting
Clean "never"; // always|auto|prompt|never
into apt.conf should do the trick, but it doesnt. No matter where I
put the apt.conf. By default there is one in
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/apt.conf, I tried a copy in /etc, but that also
Right now the apt.conf is the same on 9.3 and 10.2, and both return
when running apt-config dump, so I assume it is recognized.
What to do?
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying
to build bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.
