I would like to use the lucid package (version 1.83) in stead of the

finished files to a different directory since version 1.80 (see

Probably I will update the box to 10.04 LTS and keep it on that for some years.

The idea of compiling transmission-daemon myself does't warm me. Is it
possible to achieve this with some apt pinning, and could somebody
supply me instructions?
