h1. How to use good old konqueror 3.5.10 on decent new debian
h2. Why is it not straightforward?
Because of some install-info clusterfuck, recent *dpkg* breaks non-recent *konqueror*. See details here.
h2. So, how?
Install version of dpkg that doesn't break konqueror. This will get you into some kind of troubles if you try to use info: scheme in latter, but who uses it anyway except for GNU freaks.
"dpkg":http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/silatut/dpkg_188.8.131.52_i386.deb, "dpkg-dev":http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/patutyd/dpkg-dev_184.108.40.206_all.deb packages fixed by me (I just removed @Breaks: konqueror (<=shitty-kde4-number), you can do the same by editing @debian/control@ file and rebuilding).
