I package my own software as .debs so I can deploy it more easily. I’ve run across a problem regarding dependencies across package versions.
I’ve got two packages, call them foo and bar, both available in two versions, say 1.0 and 2.0. Package foo 1.0 depends on bar 1.0, so I’ve put something like this in the control file: Depends: bar (= 1.0).
However, installation now fails with a message similar to “foo: Depends: bar (= 1.0) but 2.0 is to be installed”
How do I do this?

The problem lies in the ability to solve dependencies of the package manager you’re using.
