Package: acpi-support
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

     I want my ARM Chromebook to suspend on lid close, hence want to
     install acpi-support so that I can enable suspend on lid close in

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

     "sudo apt-get install acpi-support"

   * What was the outcome of this action?

     : wowbagger; sudo apt-get install acpi-support

     Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
     requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
     distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
     or been moved out of Incoming.
     The following information may help to resolve the situation:

     The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      acpi-support : Depends: acpi-fakekey but it is not installable
     E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
     : wowbagger;

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

     The acpi-support package should have been installed.

I had a quick look around. acpi-support depends on acpi-fakekey on all
architectures, but acpi-fakekey is only built on i386, amd64 and
ia64. Either acpi-support should only depend on acpi-fakekey on those
architectures, or acpi-fakekey should be built on more (all?)
