Still trying to update to sarge.
I can't seem to get around, if that's the right way of putting it,
the error I'm still getting while trying to update to sarge.
After several hours I always end with this error --
Preparing to replace nano1.0.6-3 (using .. /archives//nano_1.2.4-2_i386.deb)
update alternative/editor.1: unable to make /usr/man/man1/editor.1.gz.
dpkg-tmp a smylink to /etc/alternatives/editor.1.gz: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing
pre - installation script return error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1).
Well, thats the error I get. I have tried to google this, but I get
no hits and I tried to check the debian archives, still no hit.
I don't know if timing out several times on my attempts to update
to sarge is a problem or not. But, when I did time out I would
just restart the update with - "apt-get -u dist-upgrade".
Can someone help me with this problem?
P.S. I'm not sure if I'm reading the error right, but why is
nano replacing editor and whats the symbolic link for?
