all this for a NON-problem. sorry, but no matter how you try to twist it, i have not experienced dependency-hell since i moved to debian. apt-get (aptitude)...

but Debians Pacakge system is dpkg not apt-get, apt-get is just a repository tool, so for Debian you even need an additional tool to make sure you dont have dependancy problems.

i know. so you use two tools in tandem. big deal. one is "frontend" - apt-get, one is "backend" - dpkg. the point is you tell the computer which package you want and the computer makes sure it gets installed and is functional (has al the dependencies present).
