How can I trick
apt-get to believe that a dependency of an about to be installed package is already installed, so that the referencing package can be installed without installing the dependency ?
Do I have to edit
In my real-world case I want to install
nagios without having to install
I made a shell script
/usr/local/bin/mailx that uses
msmtp to send mail remotely and linked that to
So I don't need and don't want a local mail infrastructure installed, but
nagios3-common depends on
bsd-mailx | mailx.
apt-get --force-yes install nagios3-common does not help, neither does defining a negative priority for
*mail* packages in
