Improper Pacakge Name when Compiling .deb from source


Howdy All,

So I have compiled from source a libgsf debian package. However when I go to install it dpkg complains that "libgsf depends on libgsf-1" however as you can see if you look on the debian page libgsf-1 is the same source as the ligsf package...

How can I resolve this redundant/recursive issue? For now I have just force installed my package (and it appears to be working) but if I am going to distribute it to other people I need to get this fixed.

Regards,
~Jeff

Edit the control file within the package. Look at the "Depends" and "Pre-depends" fields.
