installing package without dependencies check


Hi!!

I'm having a problem installing a program that checks for dependencies when it install. I'm trying to install varicad-en package using dpkg (I'm on debian sid). I can install it and the program works perfectly, but it breaks the apt-get database, because it requests libqt3-mt and debian uses libqt3c102-mt package. Anyway it works, but when I want to use the apt-get database I have to clean it using the apt-get -f install, and whan I do that it says that it's going to remove my package...

Maybe if can install that program without adding it into the database...

THANKS!!

I don't think that's possible as apt and dpkg completely rely on the database, but maybe you could compile it from source?

Try dpkg --purge <appname>
