I'm getting Mercurial from this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~mercurial-ppa/+archive/releases/+packages?field.name_filter=mercurial&field.status_filter=&field.series_filter=
The Eclipse plugin MercurialEclipse (former HgEclipse) doesn't work well with version 1.9.0. How do I downgrade to 1.8.4?
I tried to follow the instructions here but
aptitude versions mercurial only lists 1.9.0. When I try
aptitude install mercurial=1.8.4-0ppa1, I get:
Unable to find a version "1.8.4-0ppa1" for the package "mercurial"
I'm on Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty).
[EDIT] Note that the official version (1.7.5 for Natty) is too old. I need something from the 1.8 range.
