so, does exist any solution or workarround for ignoring unmet dependencies for apt-get ?
some combination/s with like "holding packages back or dpkg --set-selections"
I would really much appreciate any kind of workaround , please ...
With apt-get or other dependency resolving package managers it is essential (and therefore wanted by design) that the dependency tree is consistent and not broken. Those package managers will simply not work with a broken dependency tree.
The workaround would be to repackage the applications and not specifying the missing dependencies, so that the package manager is not aware that in reality the chain is broken while keeping his internal representation of the dependency tree consistent.
