Jessie comes with APR (apache runtime portable) as package libapr1 version 1.5.1-3.
However, that is the only version that Jessie has (it is also the newest version). I am trying to build the UIMA C++ SDK, which requires an apr version between 1.3.[0-9] or 1.4.[0-9].
I know that Debian Wheezy has apr 1.4.6 (I downloaded the actual package).
My questions are:
- Do I install packages using dpkg, instead of adding Wheezy in my sources? Or should I just add wheezy in my sources?
- Either via dpkg, or via apt-get, do I risk breaking "stuff" if I install two different versions of the same library? As I understand, Jessie uses apr-1.5.1 for lots of things, so I don't want to mess up my system.
