View Full Version : [all variants] broken dependencies

November 19th, 2010, 02:19 PM
Hi folks,

this is my fist post and my english is not the best, so please be patient with me.

I have a little Problem with aptitude.

I installed a lotus notes client on my 10.04 machine.

one of the dependencies for the ibm-lotus-notes-8.5.1.i586.deb file is
libgnome-desktop-2 | libgnome-desktop-2-7 | libgnome-desktop-2-11

My system has libgnome-desktop-2-17 installed. So the dependency check failes when i try to intsall the package with dpk -i.

So i installed the package with the --force-depends option

The notes client works fine. But my aptitude stops working.

Everytime i want to install or update my system it tells me, i have to resolve the missing dependencies.

apt-get install -f wants to deinstall the notes packages.

is it possible to tell apt-get that it should not care about the notes package ?

I hope somebody could help me.

Tanks a lot.
