For aptitude, is there an equivalence to
# apt-get install -f
What is it that you need to force?
-f means --fix-broken
That's what I meant... :D (Force a broken install to go thru.)
well, last time i tried aptitude install -f did not work to solve deluge
So, aptitude *does* have a "fix".
dependencies (the package from its website) but apt-get install -f does.
aptitude and apt-get are not the same. Thus, one may succeed where
the other fails.
Hence question asked.
Since you know that aptitude has a "-f", you asked the wrong
question. The correct question should have been:
Why does 'apt-get -f' work, but 'aptitude -f' does not?
