Re: getting packages from another platform
IIRC, dpkg --force-depends will cause all dependency errors to be turned
into warnings. You'll still need to satisfy all dependencies if you want
a package to work properly, but you won't need to install the packages in
the 'proper order'.

Dear debian-arm users,
Here is my problem: I need to install packages on my psion running
arm-debian, but the only way I can pass data to it is via a compact flash
card. So I thought I would download individual packages from my desktop, pass
them via the compact flash and then run dpkg -i package-name-arm.deb. This
works for isolated packages, but is hell for those with many dependencies.
How do I get around this problem? To get apt-get to fetch all the necessary
arm packages, from another platform?
Thanks for your help,
