Re: How to fix a non-default package version?

I would like to keep Perl 5.14 and lighttpd 1.4.18 installed on my

versions back). Is there some way I can fix the versions I want? I
can't find anything on this in the setup.exe documentation or Cygwin
Well, the sledgehammer approach would be to set the radio button top-right to 'keep', but then setup.exe won't offer to install *anything* new automatically (you can still request specific upgrades on top of that). Unfortunately, I don't know of anything more nuanced. In your particular case, I'd just put that manually built lighttp first in PATH and forget about the cygwin version until it gets updated. I've got several packages like that, which alternate between home-brew and official over the years -- usually when my need for new features outstrips the update rate.
