How to upgrade a conflicting package
I have a package 'liba52-0.7.4-dev' that provides/conflicts/replaces
'liba52-dev'. There is also a 'liba52-0.7.3' with the same provide
etc. The problem is I cannot install the newer package:
zodiac:/home/micce# LANG=C dpkg -i liba52-0.7.4-dev_0.7.4-1_i386.deb
dpkg: regarding liba52-0.7.4-dev_0.7.4-1_i386.deb containing liba52-0.7.4-dev:
liba52-0.7.4-dev conflicts with a52dec
liba52-0.7.3-dev provides a52dec and is installed.
dpkg: error processing debian/UPLOAD/a52dec/liba52-0.7.4-dev_0.7.4-1_i386.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing liba52-0.7.4-dev
Errors were encountered while processing:
How should this be handled? Is is unavoidable that liba52-0.7.3-dev
is first removed?
