Package: ruby-hpricot
Version: 0.8.6-5+b1
Severity: serious
Justification: uninstallable due to file conflict

Unpacking ruby-hpricot (0.8.6-5+b1) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/ruby-hpricot_0.8.6-5+b1_m68k.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/m68k-linux-gnu/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.2.0/fast_xs.so', which is also in package ruby-fast-xs 0.8.0-3+b1

Notable is that ruby-hpricot Depends ruby-fast-xs, too…
