Bug#523551: closed by Lisandro Damián Nicanor Pérez Meyer <firstname.lastname@example.org> (Just reinstall)
Yes .. I wished that it worked that way too, but it doesn't.
kdewebdev replaces quanta, but does not include quanta.
Copying quanta and quanta-doc packages to my box and then
running dpkg --install against them both (this requires a --force)
leaves me with a functional quanta package installed, but any
and every subsequent apt-get activity complains about the
database being in an unsafe state, and apt-get -f install then
promptly removes quanta.
I put testing into my sources.list - and this did not resolve
the problem - now when I try to install quanta using apt-get
(rather than dpkg against local copies of the debs) I get this:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
quanta: Depends: kfilereplace (= 4:3.5.9-3) but 4:4.2.2-1 is to be
Depends: klinkstatus (= 4:3.5.9-3) but 4:4.2.2-1 is to be
Depends: kommander (= 4:3.5.9-3) but 4:4.2.2-1 is to be
Recommends: kxsldbg (= 4:3.5.9-3) but 4:4.2.2-1 is to be
So .. as I said originally, quanta needs an update to not rely on
those packages (3.5.9-x) and instead to cope with 4.x.y. This
is all that's required for it to be sociable again.
To clarify - this problem is not resolved.
