Re: Bug#65429: boot-floppies installation stopped by tetex-bin bug
Yes you should, and you can't because of tetex, which is a bug in tetext!.
If you filed a bug on every package that could not be installed because
another package could not be installed we would have a sphaghetti of
inter-dependent bug reports.
Right. But in this case, the bug that prevents me from installing
boot-floppies is a bug (among others) that is preventing the release
of Debian 2.3. It is `release critical'.
I don't know whether the person maintaining tetex-bin knows that. I
would hope he would be more likely to fix the bug if you said to him:
`a bug in tetex-bin is holding up the release; please help!'
It is fine to offload blame, but boot-floppies needs to install and
right now it does not.
apt-get install boot-floppies
is broken. Yes, you can put the blame on tetex-bin, but the
responsibility, willy-nilly, is yours!
