Now I remember :)
But isn't that where the depends and conflicts are for ?
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4), kernel-image (>= 2.3)
Conflicts: kernel-image (<< 2.3)
But then this would force users to upgrade to 2.4 and not anybody wants
Depends: (ssh-kernel22 (= 3.4p1) & kernel-image (<< 2.3)) ||
(ssh-kernel24 (= 3.4p1) & kernel-image (>= 2.3))
A small pseudo package requiring the correct version depending on
Though this one very probably won't work with current dpkg <grin>
Or the 'easy' way would be adding a seperate package called ssh-ipv6 or
ssh-kernel24 in the maintree, then put a little
check in the main ssh package, and ask the user if he/she/it/...
wouldn't rather have a ipv6-default supportin version
as he/she/it/... is using a newer glibc&kernel :)
This still only 'fixes' SSH...
