I want to install wireshark or mc (Midnight Commander) with apt-get or synaptic, but I get a message that "this installation will remove a lot of actually installed packages".
There are for example gdebi, gedit, gnome, vino, etc. I don't understand. Of course I need these packages.

Transcript of apt-get install mc:

I have used Debian 7 Wheezy - 3.2.0-4-amd64 SMP Debian 3.2.51-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

Have you any solution for non-conflicting installation?

Maybe some people know the exact issue and already know the proceeding, but if not, you could paste apt-get install outputs. –  galegosimpatico Jan 15 at 12:31

Yep, we'll need output from the apt-get install command. Also, may be worth pasting the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list and anything in /etc/apt/sources.list.d –  EightBitTony Jan 15 at 12:37
    
Thanks, I added these outputs. –  Mato Jan 15 at 13:58

You have probably mixed packages from different Debian releases (stable, testing, experimental) which can generate such problems. Can you post the output of apt-cache policy, please? –  jofel Jan 15 at 14:54
    
@jofel Thanks. I added this output. And yes I had to add packages from different Debian releases because I need special versions of packages sometime. But if I want install package from unstable release I use apt-get -t experimental install name_of_package... –  Mato Jan 15 at 17:35
