[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#469432: file conflicts between packages

Package: epwutil, squeeze
Severity: serious
Justification: policy violation


both epwutil and hipo squeeze install
but do neither conflict, nor add a diversion, thus fail to be installed in the
same environment:

 > Unpacking squeeze (from .../squeeze_0.2.3-1_amd64.deb) ...
 > dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/squeeze_0.2.3-1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 >  trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/squeeze', which is also in package epwutil
 > dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
 > Errors were encountered while processing:
 >  /var/cache/apt/archives/squeeze_0.2.3-1_amd64.deb
 > E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
