Package: cdimage.debian.org
Severity: normal

Using both the DVD and CD images of Etch 4.0r0, the packages
spectemu-x11 and spectemu-svga are missing even though they are listed
in the package files and aptitude sees them as available.

Hi Tom,

In which Packages files? As far as I can see, none (directly):

  sledge:/home/steve/iso# zgrep "^Package: spectemu" /mnt?/dists/etch/*/binary-i386/Packages.gz
  /mnt3/dists/etch/contrib/binary-i386/Packages.gz:Package: spectemu-common
  sledge:/home/steve/iso# isoinfo -fR -i debian-40r0-i386-DVD-3.iso | grep spectemu

I only see spectemu-common on the DVDs. What you're probably seeing is
apt picking up on the mentions of (spectemu-x11 | spectemu-svga) in
the Suggests: line of spectemu-common:

  Description: Fast 48k ZX Spectrum Emulator (common files)
   Spectemu emulates the 48k ZX Spectrum, which uses the Z80 microprocessor.
   This package contains common configuration files and utilities which are or
   can be used by either the X11 or the SVGAlib frontend.
   It emulates the Z80 processor as well as the 48k Spectrum's other
   hardware: keyboard, screen, sound, tape I/O. The emulation is very
   close to the real thing, but it is still quite fast (It was reported
   to be working well on a laptop with 486 at 25MHz!). On the other hand,
   the user interface is not the best.
   Features include:
      - Sound support through Linux kernel sound-card driver.
      - Snapshot saving and loading (.Z80 and .SNA format)
      - Tape emulation: loading from tape files (.TAP and .TZX format)
      - Optional quick loading of tapes.
      - Saving to tape files.
      - Separate utility to save tape files to real tape
    - Configurable with config files and from command line
  Tag: hardware::emulation, special::auto-inst-parts


As they are only Suggests: then debian-cd would not be forced to try
and include those packages when making official CD/DVD sets. Those
packages (in turn) depend on the (non-free / non-available) package
spectrum-roms; that missing dependency is why they didn't make the
CDs/DVDs themselves. This is a known feature of contrib/non-free
package combinations on Debian CDs, and it's not one that we can
change, I'm afraid.

  Debian does NOT ship free CDs. Please do NOT contact the mailing
  lists asking us to send them to you.
