1.) What is the most easiest way to create a "virtual package" in debian?
My problem: I have compiled/installed mysql from source and now need to tell other packages that mysql is already installed (otherwise they will also try to install mysql...). I searched the internet but did not find a quick answer to this question.
2.)And is there an easy command to tell aptitude to install something, but exclusing a specific required library/dependency (like mysql). This would be another way to solve the problem...
Thank you very much!! Markus
