Thanks for pointing this problem out to me. I am new at packaging and
made several similar errors in other packages as well at first. I have
followed your advice and closed down all the old packages and opened
a new one called libsvm. I have also renamed libsvm0-dev to libsvm-dev.
Thanks for the info! Cheers,
