Bug#168976: kde dependencies trouble - removed kdeinit

Package: kde
Version: N/A; reported 2002-11-13
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

finally doing a dist-upgrade from woody to testing (sarge), i was
surprised to find that kde, now at version 3.0.1, would not start,
but instead complained that kdeinit could not be found. apparently
the dist-upgrade had removed the program.

i was able to get kde into a sort of startable state by removing
kde, then installing kdebase and kdebase-libs (which did pull
in a few dependent packages). However, trying to install almost
any kde related software fails with something like this:

tosh:/home/peter# apt-get install kxmleditor
Reading Package Lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kxmleditor: Depends: kdelibs3 (>= 4:2.2.2-1) but it is not going to be
                Depends: libkxmleditor1 (>= 0.7.1-1) but it is not going
		to be installed
		E: Sorry, broken packages
