Uninstallable Packages



Hello world,

I'm experimenting with a script to work out whether packages are
installable or not. I figured the world at large might be interested in
some of the results.

The following packages are not installable (ie, their Depends:,
Recommends:, and Conflicts: can't be concurrently satisfied) using i386
packages from main, contrib, non-free, and non-US/*.

Here we go...

    libtiff3-altdev Depends: libtiff3
    libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1-dbg Depends: libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1-dev

Huh, well, that worked out better than I expected. The only two that I
deleted were contrib/ programs depending on pine/qmail/other things, all
the rest seem to actually be uninstallable.

Cheers,
aj

I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred.
