Alien/RPM keeps trying to kill KDE. Help?
Okay, there's a software package out there which is being tracked by
Debian, but only very slowly. Some random guy built RPMs for it, so I
thought I'd grab them, and then use either 'rpm' or 'alien' to put the
package onto my testing/unstable machine.
- alien wants rpm (and so do I, so it's not really alien's fault)
- rpm depends on librpm4
- librpm4 conflicts with librpm0, and
- something called "kpackage" depends on librpm0
I don't use kpackage, but I can't remove it, because
- kde depends on kpackage
So anytime I try to do anything with 'rpm' dselect/apt-get attempts to
remove the entire KDE suite.
Maybe a bug should be filed against KDE? Why does it depend on kpackage?
I'm not subscribed to either of these lists, so please cc me on any replies.
