I'm just wondering what the proper way is to handle this situation. I
installed libquicktime with apt-get but I now want to apply a patch to
libquicktime. If I try to remove it with apt-get I get the message that
it also wants to remove :
 dvgrab gem kino kinoplus libquicktime libquicktime-devel mjpegtools
  planetccrma-audiovideoapps smilutils timfx

I guess to avoid dependancy problems. Can I just apply the patch to the
source file recompile and do a make install without removing the old
version ,
or do I have to do the apt-get remove and reinstall everything?
