Well, for one I did not use apt to install bash/readline nor dselect, I
just did dpkg -i. From what I remember I installed readline first, and
then bash. I really don't remember any problem occuring. As far as
apt/dselect goes I cannot say much as I hardly ever use them, I always
install directly with dpkg. What I need to know is if there is a problem
with the bash/readline debs. do they work ok? if not, then by all means
remove them! When I'll get back to my computer I'll check the
preinst/postinst scripts to see what might be the cause of this.
