oh, that might be it - what you are saying is that my application has to be in the repository for Application Manager to pull its dependencies from a pool of all available packages it knows about as of last refresh. And because I try to install from a file, it doesn't try to resolve dependencies.

I can definitely try that - is there a way to create a debian repository with 1 package from a folder (I'm on fedora core 6)? I can then add the  local repository to the list and try again.
