Description Adam Jackson 2011-08-10 21:56:14 UTC
Description of problem:

libsnmp.so.30 is unused in the distro.  The vast majority of packages that do want something from this package want only libnetsnmp, which (unlike the others) does not have a perl dependency.

Comment 1 Jan Safranek 2011-08-11 08:30:02 UTC
- libsnmp.so removed
- new subpackage net-snmp-agent-libs created, with all libs but libnetsnmp.so

-> net-snmp-utils need just net-snmp-libs and no perl and lm_sensors.
