Official Mirror:
The Linux Standard Base ( is a standard core system that third-party applications written for Linux can depend upon. This package provides an implementation of version 4.1 of the Linux Standard Base Multimedia specification for Debian on the Intel x86, Intel ia64 (Itanium), IBM S390, and PowerPC 32-bit architectures with the Linux kernel. Future revisions of the specification and this package may support the LSB on additional architectures and kernels. The intent of this package is to provide a best current practice way of installing and running LSB packages on Debian GNU/Linux. Its presence does not imply that Debian fully complies with the Linux Standard Base, and should not be construed as a statement that Debian is LSB-compliant.

[ Colin Watson ] * Use open() rather than file() in, for Python 3 compatibility (see LP #1035136) * Test fileob and strob against None in RFC822Parser.__init__ rather than testing their truth value, to avoid a misleading error in the case of a file with no LSB headers [ Adam Conrad ] * Allow lsb-printing to depend on cups-filters | ghostscript-cups [ Didier Raboud ] * Revert "Fix the remaining problems of python3 compatibility" (Closes: #743903) * Allow multiarch alternatives of libc6-i386 and lib32z1.
