One more question - after I had put them on hold I do not see any changes in their status in Synaptic. It is still in the "upgreadable" list. Is it how it's supposed to be?

Make sure package(s) is on hold by running...

sudo apt-mark showhold

You should get a list of held packages and will stay that way until you run...

sudo apt-mark unhold <package-name> 

Here is some useful info...

I do not see how I could block their update via Synaptic, but probably there is a way to do it in a terminal straight with apt.

To block a package use...

sudo apt-mark hold <package-name>

to unblock or unhold

sudo apt-mark unhold <package-name>

Hope this helps and what you are asking for! smile

Grew up in Dallas, Texas, the Latin music screen has always been just part of the enviroment. There were several Hisapanic bands  at my high school, one very traditional and others more toward blues or jazz with a Spanish sound.

Two individuals both graduated from my school more than a few years before me. Trini Lopez and Domingo "Sam" Samudio with the band Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.

I'm found of King Crimson as well; from Lark's tongues to Red, very nice they all are.
I am also very keen on Jethro Tull, slightly different to King Crimson though.

King Crimson has seen a lot of very talented musicians come and go but always producing some great albums. Fripp from the beginning with KC, believe he is still with them!

Jethro Tull is a favorite too, Songs from the Wood is a great album, so was proceeding next release Heavy Horses.

Progressive-rock-jazz fusion was something I began to lean toward early on perhaps with some bands 40 years ago like King Crimson, and Yes along with ELP would fit into that category perhaps.

Don't particularly like rolling releases but VOID has been a really a great experience. Much like Arch, systemd-free, uses runit and easy to install and learn, but is a 4.18 kernel and a few minor bugs... it is an alpha release. Nothing that can't be worked around! smile

M, Bloomfield, Al Kooper, Steven Stills: Super Session:

That is a great album, happed by it on YT before, giving it a listen now! wink

John Mayall is truly an under-rated great blues-guitarist, have a small collection of CD's!
Mayall, Clapton, Ginger Baker, Winwood, Jim Capaldi all crossed paths in one super-group or another.

Steve Winwood is a favorite, came across him when he was with Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith, and of course Traffic!

Fact is, most of my prized listening pleasure comes from the Yardbirds! Clapton, Page, and Beck all played with the band at one point as basist, lead. or both!

Have been fortunate so far everything almost works, installed Ob and all the associated ob features, removed lxde completely, replaced just a few items back with that was removed like pcmanfm, lxappearance.  Oblogout is behaving much like Beowulf does with only logout functioning, but can restart or shutdown with lxdm.

Overall the rest works exceptionally well, quite fast and very responsive. No keyboard or mouse issues as of yet. Believe it is an alpha release for VOID.
