apt-get dist-upgrade problem
I have a wierd error from when I tried to upgrade a system from stable/woody (a
few sarge packages like snort) to SID.
I understand SID is a bit unstable (thus Still in Development)...
Any ideas what could be causing /usr/bin/du to be undeletable? I can't write a C
program to delete it, I can't delete it by hand, etc.. I can't even move it to a
different file (which i normally can do if a process has a lock on a file handle).
Any suggestions appriciated. PLEASE CC: me on all replies!
