I'm still having major problems with the catalog package.
This all started because catalog does not depend on
mysql-server yet uses mysql in its configure and
removal scripts. Because I didn't have mysql installed
the system is completely broken. I installed mysql and
gave root the same password I told catalog but for the
life of me I can't remove the $^#% package! I get
access errors (permission denied) and dpkg dies.
I'll file a bug report, but in the meantime how can
I force apt/dpkg to remove something? Is there a
way I can manually hack the package database? I'm
at a complete loss.
