I'm using Kubuntu 12.04 (64bit). The Ubuntu repos contain gpt fdisk 8.1 which is not the latest. The latest version is 8.4 and it contains some bug fixes I want to have.
I downloaded the latest deb package from here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/srs5694/xUbuntu_11.10/amd64/gptfdisk_0.8.4-1_amd64.deb
When I tried to install it initially, I got an error that dependencies could not be satisfied. So I installed the version from the repos first, then tried to install the latest version over that. Now I get the error below.
# dpkg -i gptfdisk_0.8.4-1_amd64.deb Selecting previously unselected package gptfdisk. (Reading database ... 90031 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking gptfdisk (from gptfdisk_0.8.4-1_amd64.deb) ... dpkg: error processing gptfdisk_0.8.4-1_amd64.deb (--install): trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man8/cgdisk.8.gz', which is also in package gdisk 0.8.1-1build1 dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Processing triggers for man-db ... Errors were encountered while processing: gptfdisk_0.8.4-1_amd64.deb
How can I install 8.4 of gpt fdisk?
