Not here. Sid System.

I still have the package, as I installed it together with kdebase
3.1.2. Looks like the package-dependecys are again broken and I think
Chris will solve this with the next package release, but it could last
a bit, as he wants to recompile KDE against the qt3.2 that is in sid
now and brings up many problems.

This should be explained at bugs.debian.org, under the ksysguardd

Yes thats right, but beside ksysguard you can install every other
kdebase package. And if you want I can mail you libsensors-1debian1
package. But because of this unstable is called unstable, this is
supposed to happen from time to time. So you have to wait for a new
ksysguardd package.


It was all so different before everything changed.
