Fire up 'gnome-apt'. Under 'outdated' I see a new version
of 'file' and click on it. Pop goes the window:
1 Unsatisfied Dependencies (title)
2 Package | Version needed | Version to be installed (header)
3 libmagic1 = 4.03-3 4.03-2 (text list)
5 * needed by file
7 Installing the selected package would introduce unsatisfied dependencies.
8 Should I try adding and/or removing packages to resolve the problems?
10 [Ignore] [No] [Yes]
Consider line #2. The third header caption says "Version to be
installed". That caption is directly above "4.03-2". But the
'outdated' list shows 'libmagic1' v4.03-2 is the "Inst. Vers." and
v4.03-3 is the "Avail. Vers." So the third caption is incorrect.
Suggest changing caption headers (or whatever those things are called)
to better match the 'gnome-apt' package list, so line #2 would look more
like one of these:
2 Package | Avaiable Version (needed) | Installed Version
2 Package | Avail. Vers. (needed) | Inst. Vers.
Or swap 'em around, so the order is consistant with that of the
2 Package | Inst. Vers. | Avail. Vers. (needed)
Hope this helps...
