Re: Building custom apps vs deb packages ...
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
k, how does this work then ...
I built cyrus-sasl from source code, since I need SQLite support, but not
mysql/pgsql ... so, I try 'apt-get install postfix', since I figure that
mysql/pgsql won't hurt there, and I don't need any other features that really
require me to build it custom ... but, apt-get comes back with:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
postfix: Depends: libsasl2 (>= 2.1.19) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
So, I have to build postfix from scratch regardless? :(
