Bug#494296: rosegarden: Uninstallable in Sid

Rosegarden is uninstallable, at least on my Sid system. I get the

rosegarden: Depends: kdebase-bin but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
I tried and failed to reproduce this so I suspect it was just a
transiant issue (transiant uninstallability is normal in sid, it is only
if it goes on for some time that it is worth a bug report).
If you can still reproduce it could you try adding the packages it says
won't be installed to the install command line
until you get a more usefull error message out of apt?
Yes that did the trick. I don't know why I didn't think of that... I
think it is related the fact that I had KDE4 innstalled and thought that
I had uninstalled all of it. But I had only uninstalled the KDE4
packages that didn't have the same names as KDE3 packages. Running
apt-get install rosegarden kdebase-bin made apt uninstall a lot of other
KDE4 packages :-) So now everything works fine, thanks for your help.
