For various reasons, I have a package on my Debian system which cannot configure itself properly. I know why and I don't want to correct the problem right now.
However, I want to avoid
apt trying to configure it each time I install an unrelated package (for at least 20 seconds). To do so, I would like to flag this package as being configured, even if it is not. That is, make
apt believe that it is configured. How can I do that?
Some context: if you must know, my mysql database is corrupted. I will fix that later, but I did upgrade my mysql-server package in the meanwhile, and since that time, as the configuring script cannot succeed to launch the db-server, it fails, making
apt painful to use.
