Yeah - which is why we have apt-get. Of course comparing rpms to debs is like
comparing round and square pegs -- they might do the same thing, but they were
designed completely differently. RPMs idea of depenency resolution.. well, it
doesn't seem to have one other than replying *completely* on version numbers
and nothing else. And yet, strangely this does *loosely* work. :)
