Under the subject: dselect error I posted some odd things. Now a further question: After the emergency stop caused by errors dselect asks, if I want to delete the installed stuff. I said yes and now I get messages of the type: leaving: stable/.../package.deb for each package. But it takes a terribly long time (about 5-10 seconds per package) though nothing was installed. What is dselect doing in this time???
