I'd prefer to avoid that if at all possible. I prefer to only run programs installed by my distributions package manager

I wonder if this would do it.

"apt-cache showpkg xbmc" shows that 13.2 is still in there:

2:13.2~git20140817.2155-final-0trusty (/var/lib/apt/lists/ppa.launchpad.net_team-xbmc_ppa_ubuntu_dists_trusty_main_binary-amd64_Packages)

                  MD5: c715fd445ede63df73abecfe012c5dc2

Once removing everything 14.x, I should be able to install it specifying the version as follows:

"apt-get install xbmc=13.2~git20140817.2155-final-0trusty"

followed by a:

"echo "xbmx hold" | dpkg - set selections"

In order to prevent it from upgrading to 14.2 again.

This is all as root, of course. If done using a regular user and sudo, it changes to:

"sudo apt-get install xbmc=13.2~git20140817.2155-final-0trusty"


"sudo echo "xbmx hold" | sudo dpkg - set selections"

I'm, not 100% certain about the syntax, as I have never done this before, but I am thinking it should work.

Does anyone foresee any issues in going this route?
