Bug Description

package nova-compute-uml and nova-compute-kvm 2012.1-0ubuntu1

The two packages are trying to write to the same conf file. No experience with either of them just trying to install. On the surface my guess is that it seems they either:

need separate conf files,

need to share the same conf file or

the installer should get a flag to remove the existing package and its conf file prior to installing the new one.

Someone more familiar than I needs to make the call on what the actual solution might be.

Sorry I was not more helpful.

Also my apologies if multiple instances of this bug report get submitted. Apport or whatever program that Synaptic called to submit the bug report kept presenting dialog boxes asking to submit the report but I did not see any information to identify what the problems were. I assumed that they were all different bugs but now I am not so sure. Sorry for spamming Launchpad if they were all the same.

Confirming the conflict. The nova-compute-$foo packages need a relationship set with each other such that each conflicts with the others.
