Package: ppp
Priority: optional
Section: base
Installed-Size: 1008
Maintainer: Marco d'Itri <>
Architecture: i386
Version: 2.4.3-20050321+2
Replaces: ppp-pam, ppp-udeb
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-21), libpam0g (>= 0.76), libpcap0.7, zlib1g (>=
1:1.2.1), libpam-modules, libpam-runtime (>= 0.76-13.1), netbase, procps,
makedev (>= 2.3.1-56)

It doesn't need anything particularly bad, depending on just how minimal you
wish your installed package base to be.
