Hi

Our users have been running into this problem for quite some time, but obviously no one ever created a proper bug report.

The package securityonion-libcapture-tiny-perl should have a Provides: libcapture-tiny-perl statement to not break whenever third party packages depend upon libcapture-tiny-perl.

Thanks for looking into this in advance.

Mihai

That said, maybe it should also Conflicts: libcapture-tiny-perl and Replaces: libcapture-tiny-perl, but I'm not sure if that's actually a good thing to do.

Hi Doug,

I'm upstream for X2Go, a remote desktop solution based upon a fork of NX 3.5 we also maintain.

One of the packages (libx2go-server-perl: debian/control in the git archive) depends upon libcapture-tiny-perl, which is not co-installable with your securityonion-libcapture-tiny-perl package. The semantics of this dependency is met by your package, though.

Depends on what issue you mean. This one specifically? If you make sure that securityonion-libcapture-tiny-perl is installed, you can "safely" force-install x2goserver. I won't guide you through it, though, because that procedure is risky still and there will leave the dpkg DB in a "bad state".

Any update, if x2goserver will work or not with security onion?

Please see my response to you on the mailing list:

"Per Issue 728, I'll be updating the securityonion-libcapture-tiny-perl
package to avoid this issue in the future. In the meantime, there may
be a way to manually workaround, but I haven't had time to test. "
