I don't use apt, so i cannot help you there. But i wonder if there is
something like the yum-priorities plugin for apt
Also just out of personal interest why did you choose apt-get over the
"oficially supported" yum? Is there any advantage?
This is not meant to be negative about apt use i am just curious.
