The conflicts and breaks should have been <, not <=, if I'm not mistaken. But since the package is out, just bumping the version from ubuntu1 to ubuntu2 will also resolve the issue because the breaks/conflicts are no longer true.

This bug is now 6 months old but still not fixed. It keeps me from installing computer vision libraries (i.e., libopencv-dev depends on libraw1394-dev). Is there anything I could do to help getting it fixed?
