Hi everyone,

well it is valid to install any of the kmp packages dependency wise, but of
course this does not help you here. I believe the installer should offer you
choices here instead of simply pick something.

Why? If kernel-default is installed, install kmp-default. Basta. ;-)
Why should I choose another kernel?

actually, without checking this really, I believe it is a problem with apt.

I am sorry to say this, but I can confirm this. It seems like a problem
in apt.

Does zypper not offer you a list of choices in the same situation ? I mean
before any trucrypt-kmp-* package is installed ?

I never really used zypper on my 10.2, cos it was slow as hell. Now I
configured the repos, and tried to install the truecrypt package in the
security:/privacy repo. And zypper just wants to install truecrypt and

I then tried the newly built stuff Vittorio Manfredini, the
network:/telephony maintainer, built. And again zypper installs the
packages right, and apt wants to install many other packages, including
kernels and xen.

So: Seems like a bug in apt. Ill ask on the apt list.
