That's strange from the perspective of the Debian package information:


Both have libsqlite3-0 as a dependency. On my Ubuntu system, the same
dependency applies.

I'm not sure Novell can help with the matter, though. ;-)

Which Debian version and which package repository? I imagine that
there may have been backports of Python 2.5 to Debian 3.1 (Sarge) and
earlier, but my own experience with sqlite prior to running Python 2.5
on Ubuntu involved use of the pysqlite2 module with Python 2.4
instead. Since Python 2.5 became the default on Ubuntu, I don't recall
having any problems with sqlite.
