I confirm that. Installing libgpod-nogtk-dev from hardy on gutsy produces conflict with already installed libgpod-dev.

I just ran into this too. Unable to build amarok because the libgpod-nogtk-dev dependency is missing.

Where did you get this backported package from? It doesn't appear to be in -backports. If you're taking packages from hardy, and rebuilding them for gutsy, please mark this bug as invalid - you need to fiddle and backport any libs that go with it.

Obviously Harald Sitter (the uploader of the mentioned package) did a source-upload not adjusting build-deps in debian/control (here: libgpod-dev instead of libgpod-nogtk-dev). There are no binaries from the mentioned source published, the package has state "dependency wait" on all build-machines.

Now I am upset :P

The issue is caused by the automatic backport scripts, they usually don't adept dependencies.

This bug was fixed in the package amarok - 2:1.4.8-0ubuntu3~gutsy1

amarok (2:1.4.8-0ubuntu3~gutsy1) gutsy-backports; urgency=low

  * Backport to Gutsy Gibbon
  * Build-Depend on libgpod-dev not libgpod-nogtk-dev (LP: #182631)
