I want to create a .dep package in my PPA. That project however requires a recent GCC 4.8 or Clang 3.4+.
I found out, that you can add custom PPA dependencies, so I added ubuntu-toolchain-r/test to it.
I also specified to require gcc >= 4.8 in the debian/control file via
Build-Depends: g++ (>=4.8)
However, the build bot complains as follows:
"g++: already installed (4:4.6.3-1ubuntu5 >= 4.8 is satisfied)"
and later, of course, my built fails, because it's not compiling with gcc 4.6 (precise).
So how can I convince him about my requirement ?
