reopen 425381 thanks Thanks Andrew, You are correct, sorry for closing out your bug so quickly.. Question for debian-devel. I'm aware of the Debian Library Packaging guide, but not quite sure how we should of handled this library transition, short of waiting for each library to be built by the autobuilders on all archs. Is there any way the library transition would could go better?? The problem: libkexiv2-1 depends on: - libexiv2-0 [i386, kfreebsd-i386] - libexiv2-0.12 [not i386, kfreebsd-i386] digikam depends on: - libexiv2-0 [not arm, kfreebsd-i386, m68k, mips, mipsel, sparc] - libexiv2-0.12 [mips, mipsel, sparc] - libkexiv2-0 [mips, mipsel, sparc] - libkexif1 [arm, kfreebsd-i386, m68k] - libkexiv2-1 [not arm, kfreebsd-i386, m68k, mips, mipsel, sparc] Thus on amd64 digikam depends on libkexiv2-1 and conflicts with libexiv2-0.12, but libkexiv2-1 depends on libexiv-0.12. Fortunately the kde-extras team are also the packagers for libexiv and libkexiv, so we should be able to resolve.. What has to happen.. libexiv2 needs to be built on all archs libkexiv needs to be built with the updated libexiv2 on all archs, then digikam can be built with all the updated dependant libraries.
