LXer: Abusing your deb package manager

Published at LXer:

Normally all applications should be installed using your distro's package manager in order to set up dependencies correctly (like libraries). Once in a while you may encounter a problem with either a broken package database or synchronization problem due to hardware faults or naughty user behavior (like deletion of an application's files manually). The solution to a broken package problem is to first let the package manager try to fix it. But there are limits to what kind of a mess they can fix and sometimes you have to tread into the risky world of tool abuse to get the job done.
