*sigh* You need to maintain libdes425-3 in testing. I thought
libkrb53 included both libkrb4.so.2 and libdes425.so.3, but it depends
on libdes425-3 for the second.
)(Sorry, there were multiple different breakdowns of this around)
If that's not it then then please read on; otherwise sorry for wasting
even if you manage to fix this with uploads to unstable, I'd like to
understand a bit more about what went wrong here.
I don't like it when I give people advice that might break things and thought I had very high confidence in my statement:-)
You tried to hint krb5 into testing while retaining the libkrb53
binarypackage alrready in testing and something became uninstallable?
As I understand it: krb5 in unstable has no dependencies not in
testing. I.E. krb5 can migrate alone unless the migration would break
something in testing.
Nothing conflicts with the krb5 in unstable. I haven't actually
checked this, but it would be really strange for me not to know about.
krb5 in unstable satisfies all dependencies in testing except:
libkrb53, libdes425-3 and libkadm55 disappear.
libkrb53and libdes425-3 in testing can be installed with the krb5 in
unstable; unstable krb5 meets the libkrb53 dependencies in testing if
libdes425-3 is retained.
Nothing at all in testing depends on libkadm55.
So, unless it was libdes425-3, I'm really really confused.
