I have read this useful thread by zerozero and I tried to follow the instructions. It work, but I ended up with a small inconvenient.
Here are two packages that I need:
- libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-24_i386 (desperately needed by a program that I have to use professionally);
- nlittre2007_1.3.6-2_i386 (nice but outdated standalone dictionary program).
Of course I had to install them manually with dpkg. They don't appear in Synaptic.
But after enabling multiarch, they become visible, and Synaptic reports them as broken. I don't mind, but I get a warning, every time I start Synaptic, about 2 broken packages. How could I tell Synaptic to ignore them and turn off the warning?
(For now I have reversed the steps and disabled multiarch.)
TIA for any suggestion - Daniel
