   When installing opk/ipk packages from e.g. http://www.opkg.org/, there
will be problems with unmet dependencies because Debian uses other
package names for some of the packages providing the dependencies. I've
created a few small packages which create a mapping of the package names so
tricks like --force-depends/--ignore-depends should not be necessary. See:


   It works as a repository too if you run this as root:

# echo 'deb http://nospamnospam.homepage.dk/software/download/oedepmappings/ /' >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ril-oedepmappings.list
