Making synaptic ignore broken packages ????
 
Hi all,

A "BIG THANKS" in advance ...


I have installed synaptic successfuly.. the problem however is

if i am trying to install or update any package ---> it is trying to remove a package which i need [eventhough it tells me that I have a dependency problem ... ]

How do i make it to ignore the packages it's telling it'll remove?????



Any Help Appreciated.....

maybe you can circumvent synaptic and somehow use apt-get to force the install?

UsualTuxpect 09-05-2004 06:37 PM

thats the whole problem...


There are a couple of softwares i manually configured and installed... which need the software that Synaptic is telling me it'll remove..


I just want it to ignore the packages...

did you compile those pieces of software yourself?

UsualTuxpect 09-05-2004 10:29 PM

yes!!!! and they depend on the package that Synaptic tells me its gonna remove....


I dont want Synaptic to do that...
