libsys-utmp-perl (1.6-3) unstable; urgency=low

Closes: #394618
2006-10-22 - Joey Hess <>
libsys-utmp-perl (1.6-2) unstable; urgency=low
* The test suite depends on the system having a utmp file, and since utmp
files are IIRC not portable across arches, it's not easy to include a demo
one for the tests to run against. Instead, if the utmp file is not
present, skip the test suite. Closes: #394618
