OctoPkg and Downgrading a Package

Postby fmh » Fri Oct 23, 2015 2:16 pm


It's nice that OctoPkg is now able to easily keep our software up to date. Is it possible via OctoPkg to downgrade to a prior release of an application. The latest Hatari V1.80 broke the VM hard drive support. V1.70 worked fine. I've waited a year for BSD to get current to V1.90 in BSD but it is not yet. I tried once to compile the source of 1.90 but I couldn't get it to compile (don't remember what was wrong).

This isn't a huge deal but more curious if I can do this in OctoPkg. I don't know where to go to get the V1.70 binary for BSD otherwise I'd just do that.

It is just possible true ports.
