I have to support some Netfinity boxen running potato + a few local
packages. One of those packages is the IBM RaidManager for the IBM

Is there some way to circumvent this short of building my own binary-only
.deb package of raidman?
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
P.S. Please cc: me directly on any replies to the list, as I'm not
