installing only some of the files from a package?
OS: Debian testing
Is it possible to instruct apt-get to install only some of the files in a package?.
Here is the specific problem I'm facing: I have installed latex using the latex installer from CTAN. Now I'd like to install lyx but when apt-get install lyx reports it will install all the deb latex packages (it seems to be unaware latex is already installed).
So my question is: can I instruct apt-get to install only the lyx files with the extra 300MB or so of latex?.
