libstdc++6 and apt
gcc 4.5 got uploaded to unstable, and brought a new libstdc++6, which
has an ABI change which makes apt crash. I have to say I don't really
want to spend time fighting with gcc about it, so I have just rebuilt
apt against it (0.8.11.5+b1, it just got ACCEPTed by ftp-master, and
will appear on the mirrors by next push, in the meanwhile you can fetch
it from http://incoming.debian.org/). So:
- New installs won't have the issue.
- If you simply run apt-get dist-upgrade (after next mirror push, i.e.
at most 6 hours from now), there should be no issue, both will get
upgraded at the same time.
- If you install a package which pulls the new libstdc++6 without
pulling apt, then apt will start crashing. Fetch the rebuilt version
from mirrors, e.g.
(or any later version). and install it by hand with dpkg
