apt-get dist-upgrade will remove metapackages
The last couple of days I have not been able to complete an "apt-get
dist-upgrade" on my "sid" system, because it warns me that it will remove
metapackages kde and kdeaddons. It looks to me as if the problem is caused
by the newest version of the "vim" packages (1:6.3-068+4): the changelog
+ Removed all kvim related packages, the code is no longer maintained.
Sorry. (closes: #234455, #237385, #283765, #293110, #194449, #205586,
#266431, #272621, #294848, #245006, #194964)
The dependency sequence
kde to kdeaddons to vimpart to kvim
is thus broken.
To me it looks as if kde metapackage is now uninstallable in "sid" which is
really a pretty serious problem. Or is there some kind of work-around that
will satisfy the dependency sequence in some other way?
thanks in advance
