Apt-Pinning for Hold Back

Hello Everyone.

I recently custom built a PHP4 package from source, so that I could include the pspell libraries.  However, now that I have done this, every time I do an apt-get upgrade, it wants to install a new PHP4 package, which does not have the pspell libraries installed.  How do I tell apt to ignore a set of packages from being upgraded, so that I can always use the ones I custom built?

Thanks,

Use /php to find packages which have php in the description \ does repeat find dselect using - when your finished it remove php from the apt-get update

Hmm...

No...I don't really use dselect.  I usually use apt-get and sometimes dpkg.  What would I do to deselect it from dselect?

Thanks.  I was able to go into dselect and hold all the php packages I needed to.
