Keeping a deb file, and not upgrading it....

I'm not familiar with adept, but in Synaptic, or my preferred
aptitude (a console-based package manager), there is an option to
"hold" a particular package. I'm certain that there is a similar
option in adept, seeing as it is an apt thing.

In synaptic, you select a package, then go to the Package->Lock
Version menu item. I'm sure there's a similar option in adept

Sorry I can't be more specific, but I hope that helps.
