Unfortunately, you will have to hunt down all the packages that are
mentioned in the error messages. And the ones upon which those depend.
And so on. Then you can either install all of them by hand or put them
in one directory, go there and 'dpkg -i *.deb'. Not much fun, I'm
afraid. But at least it's not any worse than using RPM.
