Build-Dep Failure
I am currently using "PHP 5.2.7-0.dotdeb.1" and when I try to run apt-get build-dep php5 the following is returned:

apt-get build-dep php5
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package libmysqlclient14-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
E: Package libmysqlclient14-dev has no installation candidate
E: Failed to satisfy Build-Depends dependency for php5: libmysqlclient14-dev

I have removed libmysqlclient14-dev with --purge switch. I have installed libalps-heap1-dev. I have found some older deb sources to see if the dependency can be built from those. I have tried apt-get --fix-broken
apt-get --ignore-missing

Can someone help and let me know how to ignore the dependency or use the alternative libalps-heap1-dev to build-dep.

Thank You.

Can you install libmysqlclient15-dev instead and try again?
