Bug#271256: kdegraphics: collection package broken, because components are not available
in "Testing" there's a KDE Graphics metapackage (kdegraphics) 4:3.2.3-1.1
("all" architectures). However, the actual packages (e.g. kpaint) for which
kdegraphics generates dependencies only, are available only for i386 and
powerpc. Therefore, "kdegraphics" really is only available for i386 and
powerpc and shouldn't be marked available for "all" platforms. On alpha
platform, the current situation is that apt-get update marks kdegraphics as
updatable (from 3.2.2-1 to 3.2.3-1.1) - but broken, because the packages it
depends on are not available. Apart from the obvious problem, that
kdegraphics is not really currently availabe on "all" platforms (but only
i386 and powerpc), I wonder why the kdegraphics packages haven't been built
for the other architectures?
Hope that this makes things clearer?
