I would like to know what should I do when I get a broken package. Report it
to email@example.com ?
The broken package is libaspell which disable me to install kdelibs4.
Please, answer at my email address because I'm not on the mailing-list :-)
Look at http://bugs.debian.org/libaspell15c2 to see if it's been
reported. A broken package affects a lot of people, I suspect that
it's already been reported. KDE is pretty popular.
There's been one reported ("broken dependancies"), perhaps the fix has
been tangled in the ftp server move. Be patient.. ;-)
Sometimes the problems are known, but unreported. Try writing the
maintainer directly. As a last resort, file a bug report for the
~# reportbug libaspell15c2
