I need to install an old package, having a dependency on
libreadline5-dev. This -dev package does no longer exist, it is replaced
by libreadline-gplv2-dev. From the package description that package
conflicts with libreadline5-dev, and replaces libreadline5-dev. Still
the old package refuses to install.
Shouldn't libreadline-gpl2-dev also have a Provides: libreadline5-dev
entry? In case not, how to enable the installation of that old package.
Maybe this is a debian-user question, but I think it is not.
