I've created my own deb package for Redis 2.6.11 instead of the very old default version for Ubuntu. All works well except when I do an apt-get upgrade it tries to install what it thinks is the latest version of redis-server How can tell the package manager to stick on my custom one and don't refer to default repository for this particular package?

Ubuntu 12.04
