In same directory:

Ok, I did all that, but when I try to run dpkg -i, I get the following output:

How can I uninstall syslog-ng and install metalog?  dpkg won't let me
uninstall syslog-ng before I install metalog because a plethora of packages
depend on system-log-daemon.


# dpkg --force-remove-essential --force-remove-reinstreq --force-depends -r syslog-ng
# dpkg -i metalog_0.7beta-3_i386.deb

use force options with extreme care, but they are occasionally useful...(Only one of the force options is needed, but I am not sure which ;))
