Justification: renders package unusable
* What led up to the situation?
Trying to install openvswitch-common + openvswitch-switch in debian testing usig apt. Installation exits with error message when running postinst step
* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
apt install openvswitch-common opevswitch-switch
* What was the outcome of this action?
broken package openvswitch-common, not installed package openvswitch-switch
* What outcome did you expect instead?
working installation of openvswitch
Taking a short look at the arm64 package of openvswitch-common I think I could identify two issues.
The first one is that libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0.0.0 seems to be missing from the package, there is only the libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0 symlink.
The second issue seems to be a hardcoded arch path in the postinst script: ... "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libopenvswitch-2.13.so.0.0.0" ...
which obviously doesn't seem to be correct for the arm64 package.
I also had a short look at the version 2.10 arm64 package of openvswitch-common from buster. That one does have the according .so.0.0.0 file and it
comes completely without any postinst script, so I assume both issues got introduced with version 2.13 of this package.
Thank you very much for having a look at those issues.
