How do I override this? In the short term, you can add a debian/shlibs.local file to force a dependency on the virtual package libgl1 instead of mesag3-glide2. See the packaging manual, section 12.1. Putting the following line in that file will probably take care of your problem: libGL 1 libgl1 In the long term, you should file a bug against mesag3-glide2 for not providing a correct default shlibs. -- Zed Pobre <email@example.com> a.k.a.
