This always causes me problems - specifically, using Kubuntu (6.10/Edgy) and Kdevelop, which depends on CVS. If I install CVSNT first, then KDevelop, it uninstalls CVSNT and installs CVS instead. If I then try to reinstall CVSNT, it uninstalls Kdevelop and CVS. (This is using apt-get from the command line, rather than adept.) I have got round this in the past by package hacking and using dpkg -i with some rather nasty --force options to get both CVS and CVSNT installed together on the system, but that's obviously not the right way of doing things, and besides it gives rise to continual warnings about package conflicts. Maybe there's a simple option I'm missing? Can anyone tell me what is the right way to get Kdevelop and CVSNT to coexist happily? -- TonyE
