comment Build dependencies for emacs24 could not be satisfied 14.04
@A.B. It is a working solution. No need to argue here your solution is great. It was just a side node which might be interesting for future visitors as it is possible to do an upgrade from lts to normal.

@Fabby though not strictly an answer to the question (as I mention 14.04). Upgrading the distro also solves the problem.

yes you are right, and I'll accept your answer if no better solution pops up, but I am quite wary about the idea of manipulating dependency files as I am afraid that it'll haunt me at some other time.

do I understand correctly that you 'just' change the dependency string in the deb package? This will definitly work, but aren't dependencies there for a reason?

@A.B. How can I resolve this problem as trying to install the dependency manually gets me into an endless recursion on different unmet dependencies.
