Sorry, the versioned Breaks: ppp (<< 2.4.6) obviously only helps too ensure that a recent enough version of ppp is installed. It doesn't guard against breakage due to new ppp upstream releases. I guess I would have to add a Breaks: ppp (>= 2.4.7) for that Thinking about this, something like this could be useful for such situations: Breaks: != ppp-abi-version-2.4.6 as counterpart to Depends: = ppp-abi-version-2.4.6 -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
