ATTN: Raise Apt-Cache Size Limit
Please raise the limit for installed package lists by a lot. That newcomers
to Debian have to fight the
"E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room" error is rediculous. When I first got it
a couple months ago, I had no idea what to do. Google produced absolutely
nothing. So I figured deleting my package lists was the right thing to do.
Obviously it wasn't, but how was I to know that? I'm probably not the only
person who messed everything all up trying to find a solution that would let
me keep my system running and upgrading in proper order. Apt should produce
a much better error message when that happens, and possibly even say how to
fix it right there. However, this is a waste of time, having slightly
bigger packages don't kill anybody, so please set the limit a bit higher by
default. Those who don't want their package lists taking so much space can
decrease that themselves manually later.
