this is a bug in aptitude, it shows the package state and the latest
version available, not the version which is installed.
use apt-cache policy smartmontools instead.
That's deeply weird; i installed smartmontools not 10 minutes before
getting the above output, on a clean system. Why would it install
something other than the lastest version available..?
I don't see this behavior occurring with other packages, but I'll go
read up on apt-cache. Unless it IS happening with other packages and i
just haven't caught them doing anything odd yet..? Oh, yikes...
