Package: octaviz
Version: 0.4.0-14
Severity: grave

Hi Raphael,

octaviz cannot be installed:

# apt-get install octaviz
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  octaviz: Depends: libvtk4c2 (>= 4.4.2-8) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

and forcing the installation of libvtk4c2 would remove other packages
that have already migrated to the newer libvtk4c2a package:

# apt-get install octaviz libvtk4c2
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libvtk4-dev libvtk4c2a mayavi python-vtk vtk-tcl
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libvtk4c2 octaviz
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 5 to remove and 19 not upgraded.
Need to get 18,0MB of archives.
After unpacking 13,9MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?

Furthermore, build dependencies cannot be satisfied:

# apt-get build-dep octaviz
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Build-dependencies for octaviz could not be satisfied.
