>From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Installwatch :

"At present, the version of Installwatch packaged with CheckInstall is
incompatible with the current version of the GNU coreutils (Core Utilities).
Because of this, Installwatch can't monitor any changes made with the
coreutils, rendering its logs incomplete. Depending on the software package,
this may completely invalidate the information provided by Installwatch and
thus any program that depends on it (such as CheckInstall)."

It is a true that last installwatch's patches comes from 2005. :-(

Time to remove installwatch and force depends castfs?
