Bug#711782: iproute: transitional package uninstallable on kfreebsd|hurd
Control: affects -1 debootstrap
The transitional package iproute is provided for kfreebsd and hurd
arches, but its dependency iproute2 is not satisfiable. This makes
debootstrap (from Wheezy) fail to create create a sid chroot:
> Errors were encountered while processing:
> dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of iproute:
> iproute depends on iproute2; however:
> Package iproute2 is not installed.
> dpkg: error processing iproute (--configure):
> dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
A workaround is to specify debootstrap --exclude=iproute
> iproute (Version: 1:3.9.0-2)
> Package has a Depends on iproute2 which cannot be satisfied on hurd-i386.
> Package has a Depends on iproute2 which cannot be satisfied on kfreebsd-amd64.
> Package has a Depends on iproute2 which cannot be satisfied on kfreebsd-i386.
> Package has a Depends on iproute2 which cannot be satisfied on sparc.
Please reassign this bug and/or downgrade, if this cannot or should not
be fixed in src:iproute2. I'm fairly sure debootstrap should be able to
create a jessie chroot from a wheezy system, though.
