I'm trying to get the Asigra Televaulting client app (online backup, very
nifty, definitely *not* FOSS) running on Debian Etch (RHEL and SUSE are the
only supported distros) and have most of the problems sorted (hunting down
required but undocumented packages one by one), but I've run into one that
has prompted a question.
It was compiled against libxerces-c.so.25, but Etch ships with
libxerces-c.so.27. I could just download the .DEB from somewhere and install
it, but if you start going down that road, then APT quickly becomes useless.
I remember seeing somewhere that there's a way to add a repository to the
sources.lst that only gets used for named packages (I need libxerces from
Sarge, but everything else from Etch), but there's nothing in the man page
and Google is drawing a blank. Any ideas?
