Package: zfsutils-linux
Version: 0.6.5.9-5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

it seems there is an unnecessary conflict with zutils package that
provides utilities to transparently deal with compressed files.

It propably should not have a conflict against that package.


# apt-get install zfsutils-linux zutils

zutils is already the newest version (1.5-5+b1).
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
zfsutils-linux : Conflicts: zutils but 1.5-5+b1 is to be installed
zutils : Conflicts: zfsutils
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

The conflict is legitimate. Both packages provide an executable named
"ztest".

I'm not sure if zfsutils-linux needs to actually ship the ztest utility.
Alternatively, it could be moved out into a separate package.
