a Linux meta-installer with enhanced dependency-solving

As a Linux distribution we face a huge number of reports of users unable to install packages due to APT limited solving capability

In the scope of a EU research project (MANCOOSI) we had enhanced the solving capabilities of APT using pseudo-Boolean optimization. In this talk we propose to share the results and discuss with the community how this work can help other distributions.
