I'm running Debian 7.3 and I built Python 2.7.6 from source and it was installed in
/usr/local/lib/python2.7 I used checkinstall to create a .deb package so I can easily uninstall it later, the problem is that I named the package
python, but if I try to remove it it'll remove all the other packages that depend on
python, so now I removed the installed files manually but the package is still showing in Synaptic package manager and also if I run:
apt-cache show python
I can see the 2 descriptions, the one I installed and the default one, also in Synaptic I can see it under Status > Installed (local or obsolete).
So how can remove this package without removing the original python package ? it's showing 2 versions 2.7.6 (my own version) and 2.7.3 (the system's version), can I remove 1 version and keep the other ?
