Description From 2005-09-08 20:10:42
I have own build of MPlayer package, where i removed dependencies on some not
needed libs, like libxmms, libjack etc.

MPlayer is on hold in apt.conf.

Local installed version of MPlayer is 1.0-alt20.snowflake.pre7, and the one that
is available in Sisyphus repository is 1.0-alt21.pre7.

When i do 'apt-get dist-upgrade' apt wants to install those libs, that i removed
from my own version of MPlayer:

Следующие НОВЫЕ пакеты будут установлены:
  libarts libdirectfb libdv libfaad libjack liblame-hydrogen liblirc liblzo
  libmad libxmms
Следующие пакеты будут СОХРАНЕНЫ:
  MPlayer

Seems like APT checkes only repository's version of package dependencies, not
the local one's.

In fact, i did tried install and remove those lib-packages, as u can see in

Looks like it's not gonna be fixed in apt-rpm.
