unmet dependencies


Code:
pyros:/var/ftp2/images# apt-get install zip
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  qemu: Depends: proll but it is not installable
        Depends: openhackware but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
pyros:/var/ftp2/images#
I have installed qemu, without the packages supporting PPC and sun JavaStations. However, i get these kind of messages (see above). I don't care about these 2 packages and i don't need them! How do i get rid of this problem? Isn't there a way to force the installation of a package, without caring for the dependencies?
apt-get -f install just tries to remove qemu

I just checked, and both proll and openhackware are available in the testing main repository. Which distribution are you currently using, and have you done an apt-get update recently?

I am using Sarge amd64 (forgot to mention). However, i am not using testing and i don't need these packages either. There must be a way to force an installation without the dependencies getting in your way. It is a useful feature. I tried a couple or more things from "man dpkg", but no results.
Thanks anyway Wells.

Well...if anything else, I suppose you could try grabbing the source deb file and compile it from scratch...
