Re: Upgrading from 1.1 to frozen
No, niether dpkg-ftp nor dpkg-mountable modify the available
file directly. What, then, causes the problems upgrading to frozen?
Methinks (despite the tone of your remarks) that the problem then
does in fact lie in dpkg; as it seems to accept a packages file that
it consequently can't parse, breaking the install.
In any case, encrypting the directory is wrong, (even if
programs were breaking the process the right thing to do is to submit
bugs against them), since the information can be used legitimately by
other programs and humans.
I find the ability to parse the config files in wetware
extremely useful in case of problems in dpkg (a look at the bug
database indicates that dpkg is not immune to gremlins).
who would be not surprised if Ian's message infuriates people.
Congresswoman: Well, Mr. Dallas... we've heard your smut masquerading
as songs... and we've heard how teen prostitution, pregnancy, drug
use, cults, runaways, suicide and poor hygiene are sweeping this
nation. We thought you might like to share with the committee any
particular causes you might see for those latter problems... Steve
Dallas: I dunno. Maybe the proliferation of narrow, suffocating
zealotry masquerading as parenting in this country. Bloom County
