Re: KDM 4:4.6.3-1 upgrade fails
I cannot confirm this, upgrading from 4.6.2 to 4.6.3 on a unstable system. Everything went fine on 32 and 64-bit. No errors at all.
Great work, many thanks to debian-kde team.

Hi everyone, I was thrilled this morning to see KDE 4.6 landing in Sid,
When upgrading from Wheezy to the current Sid version I got a
post-install error leaving kdm in a broken state. Looking into it I
found that the "adduser" command from /var/lib/dpkg/info/kdm.postinst
was the culprit, spitting errors about an non existing ID in the 62455
range (decrementing -1 every new error).
So I created manually a kdm system user and group with:
adduser --system --group --no-create-home kdm
(original postinstall command is without --group)
and also took care of:
chown -R kdm /var/lib/kdm
Then kdm installed fine.
Now everything works, but did anyone else encounter this error (didn't
find it in the BTS) ? Is what I did a foolish move and KDE will explode
in my face at some point ?
