I installed Crossover from AUR using yay -S crossover. When Crossover updated to a new version, I couldn’t use it anymore because my license was for the old version.
So, I want to revert to version 20.0.4 of Crossover. I had a look in the Arch wiki, and it says “Old AUR packages can be built by checking out an old commit in the AUR package Git repository.”
How do I do that? Is there an easy way I can do it using yay? And how to I prevent yay from updating Crossover again when I type
yay -Syu ?
First, check your yay cache in
~/.cache/yay/crossover and see if you have a package for the old version there. If so, install it with
yay -U /path/to/package
If not, try downloading the 3 files from here into a folder. Then open a terminal cd into that folder and type
Add the package name to the
Ignorepkg line in
/etc/pacman.conf. Also remove the
# from the beginning of the line if there is one.
