Can aptitude show older versions of packages if available in /var/cache/apt/archives?
Written on 2012-02-09.
is it possible to tell aptitude to show older versions of a package next to
the currently available one if it is still present in
/var/cache/apt/archives? Like it does when you use unstable and experimental
side by side? I know that aptitude does not really support downgrades of
packages, but showing those packages directly in aptitude if available in the
cache is a lot easier than searching them in the file system and installing
them manually, especially if you don’t know where they hide.
