That's because of shlibs-depends. As the packages are made for woody it'll 
pick up libexif5 instead of libexif7. I try to get around backporting 
packages from unstable as much as possible so upgrades to kde-3.1 should only 
require minimal upgrades of third-party packages.

While you mention kamera - I build digikam, too. Now, out of interest, does 
anyone have a clue if there is a hotplug package that works like the SuSE one 
where a usb device is assigned to the group audio instead of root ? That's 
the way they work for making a device available to the user, in particular 
digicams (and scanners I think).

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
