Bug#390072: aptitude reports libgtk-pixbuf-perl as broken and can't be upgraded
When trying to dist-upgrade aptitude tries to upgrade libgtk-perl and libgtk-pixbuf-perl, the *pixbuf* won't install because it has unresolved dependencies against libgtk-perl.
root@zond:~# aptitude dist-upgrade
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgtk-pixbuf-perl: Depends: libgtk-perl (= 0.7009-6) but 0.7009-11 is to be installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
Downgrade the following packages:
libgtk-perl [0.7009-6 (now) -> 0.7009-2 (stable)]
libgtk-pixbuf-perl [0.7009-6 (now) -> 0.7009-2 (stable)]
Score is -130
Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] Y
The following packages will be DOWNGRADED:
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 2 downgraded, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 856kB of archives. After unpacking 24.6kB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
Unpacking replacement libgtk-perl ...
Setting up libgtk-perl (0.7009-2) ...
Setting up libgtk-pixbuf-perl (0.7009-2) ..
.... this doesn't help a bit, a dist-upgrad just after the downgrade makes aptitude propose to remove the packages.
maybe the bug should be filed against dvdrip, that seems to be the only app. affected in my system at least.
