Hi,

This is fixed upstream, but there's a lot of other stuff
there.

In order to fix this here we will need to first fix cdd
(cdd-dev binary package), and then rebuild debian-edu
against it.

debdiffs will be forthcoming.

Thanks,

James

Hi,

Attached is the debdiff to fix this issue. The corresponding
bug on cdd is bug 211408.

Thanks,

James

This bug was fixed in the package debian-edu - 0.824ubuntu1

---------------
debian-edu (0.824ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low

  [ James Westby ]
  * Rebuild with a patched version of cdd-dev that doesn't use cdd-common
    files in the postinst when we don't need them. Previously it would
    unconditionally use the files, which would lead to failures without
    cdd-common installed (LP: #190682).
    - Setting the build-dependency to ensure that we build with the fixed
      version.
    - These changes can be dropped after Hardy, when this and cdd can be
      synced from Debian.

  [ Daniel Holbach ]
  * debian/control.stub: Maintainer value to match the DebianMaintainerField
    specification.
  * Removed stray python-gpod_0.6.0-2.1_i386.deb lying in the source.
