ppa: version number issue
as reported on oisf-users:
Noticed something odd. If I add both the stable and the beta PPA to my
system, it picks the 1.4rc1 (from beta) over 1.4 (from stable). IIRC how
apt/dpkg works is it compares version numbers. It seems in it's logic
1.4rc1 > 1.4.
In another project I worked around this by slightly changing the version
number of the package:
This works because in Debian/Ubuntu the complete version will look like
I guess when comparing these version strings the "-" is considered >
that the "~".
Can you replace the 1.4rc1 pkg from the beta ppa with 1.4~rc1 as a test?
