Using the latest Debian package and Apache 2

Hi All…

I have a working Debian Sarge (stable) server running Apache 2 and the
stable Debian RT package, 3.4.1-2. When I attempt to upgrade to the latest
package (3.4.4-2 from unstable) I see that there appear to be dependency
errors, such that it wants to install Apache.

Can someone suggest a way to get around this? Would it be easier to dump
Apache2 and move to Apache?

Better yet, is there a way to move to 3.4.5 without taking RT off package
management?

Thanks…

And if I take RT of package management, is there a way to update any
database schema and other changes from 3.4.1 to 3.4.5?–On Monday, August 07, 2006 1:33 PM -0400 Jim Archer jim@archer.net wrote:

I came across the same issue when trying to stick with the Debian
packages…I ended up giving up and installing from source…which all
things considered…wasn’t too painful.From: rt-users-bounces@lists.bestpractical.com

Conveniently, there were no database updates between 3.4.1 and 3.4.5.

Download the .deb file and do a "dpkg --force-depends -i ". It’s
a dirty hack which in this case won’t hurt too much. You can, however,
royally screw things up with non-judicious use of dpkg --force- so
beware.

There are other slightly cleaner (and more complicated) ways of doing
this, but for one package with few dependencies that will work. Of
course, installing from source is your best bet here as RT doesn’t appear
to be updated for security very often.

Thanks Jesse and everyone else who replied, and thanks also for the tip
that the next release is due out soon. I have already installed this one,
but I think I’ll wait before putting it into service and do the upgrade
first.–On Tuesday, August 08, 2006 11:49 AM -0400 Jesse Vincent jesse@bestpractical.com wrote:
