Re: installing a single package

Received Sun 24 Apr 2005  2:01pm +1000 from Dave Wolover:

> I'm trying to install a single xfree*.deb package I downloaded and put into my /home/dwolover directory.  I've tried the "apt-get install /home/dwolover/xfree*.deb" command but it seems to be checking the package directories and ignores the single package I identify in the command.  Any help on what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated. 

  wajig install xfree*.deb

Wajig figures out whether this is a local file or something in the apt
cache, or something to get from a Debian archive....
