Package: libkjsembed-dev
Version: 4:3.5.9-2
Severity: serious


automatic installation tests of packages that share a file and at the
same time do not conflict by their package dependency relationships has
detected the following problem:

Unpacking libkjsembed-dev (from
.../libkjsembed-dev_4%3a3.5.9-2_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/libkjsembed-dev_4%3a3.5.9-2_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/libkjsembed.so', which is also in package
Processing triggers for man-db ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

A full log of the installation attempt can be found here:


This is a serious bug as it makes installation fail. Possible
solutions are to have the two packages conflict, to rename the common
file in one of the two packages, or to remove the file from one
package and have this package depend on the other package. File
diversions or a Replace relation are another possibility.

This bug could in principle be filed against any of the two packages.
I might have made the wrong choice in filing the bug against your
package, in this case please feel free to reassign to the other

All this stuff is fixed in experimental. Current packages in unstable are
going to be replaced hopefully within the next 2 weeks.
