Bug#407554: metacity: Fails to install

condellog (Bugzilla)
Package: metacity
Version: 1:2.16.2-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package uninstallable

*** Please type your report below this line ***
As of 19 January 2006 metacity(=1:2.16.2-1) is not installable due to
broken dependancies (depends on metacity-common 1:2.16.2-1 but only
1:2.16.3-1 is installable)

I know that gnome 2.16 isn't fully packaged but this seems more like
an human error to me.

        Thanks for the timing, Loïc, as usual !

        By the way, this is currently quite a common situation, is there any
solution - will there be one any time soon ?

        Oh and ciao, Giovanni :)

Bye

 The only current way for me to solve this is to build the missing
 packages.  I think we should try to upload for i386 in experimental (at
 least there's an amd64 buildd).

 I think it's a waste of time to build the GNOME 2.16 packages by hand
 except by interested parties.  If a DD happens to he interested and
 rebuilds some stuff, he's welcome to upload it of course.  But it's
 really a waste of DD resources to build GNOME 2.16 manually.

 The proper long term solution is to fix sbuild; I wish I had time to
 work on this.

   Bye,
