While installing an updated fvwm2 from source, I decided to include gnome
support using apt-get to install libgnome-dev and I got the following

debian:/home/sttng359/fvwm/fvwm-2.4.17# apt-get install libgnome-dev

Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 

I just installed libqt3-dev a little while ago so I could use the
gui config for linux-2.6 and I had the reverse situation.  Why can't I
have both installed at once, as far as I can tell, they should be
independent of each other.  I've had to switch several times already for
compiling different software packages.  If the main libraries can both be
installed, why can't the dev support files also be?  I can understand
debian refusing to let me install both exim and sendmail, but this seems
pointless.  This has been one of the biggest nussiances I've had since I
switched from redhat.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
