Oh - stupid me.
* Provides: declare package namerather: implement the named 'virtual' package
Yeps, that's what I was trying to say too :-)
* Conflicts: require only one implementation installed at a time * Replaces: take over overlapping files (e.g. conffile)conffile or regular file. in this case: /usr/lib/libjackserver.so.0...that's at least my understanding of it - I might be wrong about some details or not cover it all: Read the Debian Policy for official info.I'm pretty confident that Replaces is correct here and conflicts is not necessary.
I do believe they are both needed: I believe that "Replaces" do not magically solve collissions between multiple concurrently installed packages providing same files (conffile or not).
But as I said earlier, I might be wrong.(I shall try ignore any and all responses to this email now - I made my point already, and should concentrate on my theater work now)
