how are the dependencies incorrect? They depended on kdelibs3-nossl. I
meant them to depend on kdelibs3-nossl and NOT kdelibs3. This was
by design. I did not want people installing the non-US version with these
The correct solution is to follow the dependencies and install kdelibs3-nossl
and remove kdelibs3 or wait till later.
dpkg-shlibdeps does not need to be adjusted.
