Hi everybody, if I add a dependency on util-linux because I need that /sbin/getty is installed, why must this dependency be versioned? If I simply add Depends: util-linux lintian complains loudly and issues an error message: depends-on-essential-package-without-using-version depends: util-linux I could of course pick a random version number to make lintian happy, I simply don't know which explicit version I should choose otherwise. As said, the only requirement I have is that /sbin/getty is installed. Should I simply ignore the lintian error?
