gnome-scottfree_0.27-1 depends on "libgtktty0 (>= 0.27-1)".
But wether it is obsolete or it isn't, dselect should not
end in a kind of deadlock showing the dependency conflict
screen again and again if all dependencies are met. It should
however show it once to add a package to meet a dependency
and then a simple return should exit that screen.
If the dependency screen pops up it shows
the dependencies wich are the cause for the screen
to pop up in the lower half of the screen.
In this case it does not list any unmet
dependencies, but it does pop up and
<return> leads to the same screen popping
Maybe I am failing to see something, but if that
is true I would be glad if someone could explain
it to me.
