Re: help apt upgrade issue
I am running a debian woody mixing stable and testing and very random few
unstable packages with the 2.4.24 kernel. I just did an apt-get -u
dist-upgrade and there was a couple upgrades none seemed very significant
but it bombed out at the end. Now it bombs out everytime i do an upgrade
and a couple things seem broken like my openoffice stopped working. Seems
to be a conflict with the xlibmesa3 upgrade and my existing libGLU.so.1.3
Here is the output:
S# apt-get -u dist-upgrade

It sounds like you have to force the install like (one line):
dpkg -i --force-overwrite
