Package: procps
Version: 2:4.0.4-2
Architecture: amd64
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.34), libncursesw6 (>= 6), libproc2-0 (>= 2:4.0.4),
»»» libsystemd0 (>= 254~rc1),
    libtinfo6 (>= 6), init-system-helpers (>= 1.29~)

And this dependency is not satisfiable by current version of libelogind0;
because of a demand by systemd maintainers instead of using a common on-dbus
protocol (which is easy to do, and relatively reliable[1]), we have to
replace the whole library, matching the ABI.


[1]. Save for the usual dbus issues, such as handling restarts badly, etc.
