dist-upgrade wants to remove scwm
apt-get wants to remove scwm when I dist-upgrade, rathern than
upgrading it. Any idea why? This seems like undesirable behavior;
have I caused it in some way or is something wrong with scwm or ... ?
apt-get actually wants to remove six packages:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
console-tools console-tools-data egcs-docs netpbm-nonfree open scwm
More generally, how can I get apt to explain to me the choices it's
I have a mostly slink machine with a few potato packages, and I was
looking at what would happen (with apt-get -s) if I dist-upgrade. I'm
not certain what more information to report.
