Bug#491983: koffice: experimental packages attempt to overwrite files in old *-data packages
In the process of installing KDE 4 stuff, I got this:
Preparing to replace kivio 1:1.6.3-7 (using .../kivio_1%3a188.8.131.52~that.is.really.184.108.40.206-1_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement kivio ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kivio_1%3a220.127.116.11~that.is.really.18.104.22.168-1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/pixmaps/kivio.xpm', which is also in package kivio-data
Preparing to replace kpresenter 1:1.6.3-7 (using .../kpresenter_1%3a22.214.171.124~that.is.really.126.96.36.199-1_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement kpresenter ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kpresenter_1%3a188.8.131.52~that.is.really.184.108.40.206-1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/kpresenter.png', which is also in package kpresenter-data
I had to use a force flag in dpkg.conf to get it to install.
If I'm not mistaken, kivio should conflict with kivio-data (KDE3 version) and kpresenter conflict with kpresenter-data
(KDE3 version), to ensure they are removed before kivio and kpresenter are installed.
