How to fix some mysterious problems.

hey guys,

okay long term short, i've got 2 tweaks i want to test to run at the same time. however both packages are referring to be incompatible to each other within their deps.

So i would need cydia to ignore the deps. Because cydia is failsafe and didn't has an option for this, i need to do this via SSH / CLI. I've installed aptitude and the latest apt-get package in cydia (0.7.3 or so)

however flags won't work for 2 reasons:

1) apt-get returns "--nodeps" is not understood 2) even if it would accept this flag it would only tell apt to ignore the deps for this single operation only. I'm afraid the next time i start cydia it'll try to satisfy the sources and removes one of the packages.

2.b) i'll guess i would have the same problem if i would use dpkg with --ignore-depends; if i start cydia again, i'm most likely screwed.

Any ideas?

you really dont wanna ignore dpendancies. They are dependancies for a reason

Well i know they are called dependancies for a reason, but i only need 1 function out of the second tweak and i will disable everything else, so it is possible that the bug which prevents both tweaks from working together won't affect me at all.

If it doesn't work and ends up in a kernel panic, well worst thing that could happen is i need to restore...
