Subject: file conflicts between packages
Date: Thu, 24 Jul 2008 12:59:20 +0200
Package: libbsd-dev, libbsd0
Severity: serious
Justification: policy violation


both libbsd-dev and libbsd0 ship
but do neither conflict, nor add a diversion, thus fail to be installed in the
same environment:

 > dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libcgi-dev_1.0-6_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 >  trying to overwrite `/usr/share/man/man3/md5.3.gz', which is also in package libbsd-dev
 > Processing triggers for man-db ...
 > Errors were encountered while processing:
 >  /var/cache/apt/archives/libcgi-dev_1.0-6_amd64.deb
 > E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
