    problems installing wine


    I am trying to install wine on an old laptop of mine(running xubuntu 7.04), but it doesn't have any internet access on it.
    i downloaded the .deb install package for wine and put that on the laptop via flash drive. but i still had a bit of dependencies to install for it to work.
    I've pretty much installed all the dependencies except for two:
    libgphoto2-port0
    libgphoto2-2

    the problem is, when i try to install one , it says it requires the other.
    i.e., installing libgphoto2-2 says i need libgphoto2-port0 , and vice versa


    please help , thanks in advance

    Have you tried using --conflicts or --force options?
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force libgphoto2-2
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Code:
    cody@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force libgphoto2-2
    Password:
    dpkg: unknown force/refuse option `libgphoto2-2'
    
    Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
    Use `dselect' or `aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
    Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
    Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
    Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;
    Type dpkg --license for copyright license and lack of warranty (GNU GPL) [*].
    
    Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through `less' or `more' !
    cody@ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg -i --conflicts libgphoto2-2
    dpkg: unknown option --conflicts
