Unfortunately, I forgot to keep the package that I installed (the fake one)
so I cannot run 'dpkg --info' on it, but below is the output on 'dpkg -s'
and 'dpkg -S'
I don't see the problem, and I was able to install a newer kcrontabs package
with no problem. The older kcrontabs package was looking for an older
kdelibs version, kdelibs0 I believe it was.
/var/mail/block#dpkg -s kdelibs2g
Status: install ok installed
