Currently there are 0 packages tagged with that. Anyway, pbuilder doesn't really care about this afaik, but I don't even recall it ever caring. For dependencies resolution it just passes the list of deps to something else, in our cases it creates a fake .deb with the needed build-dep (=> stripping build-profiles and arch restrictements after evaluating them), install it and then asking aptitude to fix the deps. I believe this can deal with virtual dep just fine (though it's not like I even explicetely tried this out, and for sure now nothing is failing due to that. ISTR that tag was done due to apt saying Depends: $pkg which is a virtual package when it cannot find it for whatever reason (look at the depwait packages to see). That string is actually misleading... -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: http://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
