The recent flurry of discussion under "don't upgrade grub or grub-pc ! ...",
prompted me to install apt-listbugs, since I am running squeeze and pretty
doing upgrades fairly frequently without any real protection against bugs
getting into squeeze from sid. What is claimed for apt-listbugs sounded good,
I can't figure out how to get apt-listbugs to work.
Can someone post an example of the use of apt-listbugs? I mean the actual text
of what one types to get something other than error messages from it.
Is a user supposed to run it from an xterm window? I don't have any tweeking of
the squeeze install, it is pretty much what one gets using the business-card
CD from December time frame. I do have a local proxy using approx that has been
working for many months.
Error messages are:
locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
I'm in USA. Whatever locale settings that I have, were set up by
answering questions in the business-card install scripts from about a
month ago. I'm pretty sure I simply accepted the defaults offered by
the script, as I have no competence in any language other than
It doesn't seem to need super user to run. All the options seem to be for
ways to restrict the output. But I'd like to have an unrestricted output
of all bugs in all installed packages --- at least until I see too much
for a while. But beyond those there lines, I get nothing. I don't believe
there are no outstanding bugs in squeeze.
What should I do to make it give output?
