endless loop in dselect
There is an endless loop with dselect:
starting from scratch;
mark: new required
mark: new important
find: at is important (was: remove)
at depends on bsdutils
libc5-dev (was: install)
libc5-dev depends on libc5 (= 5.4.7-7)
libc5-dev is marked
libc5 is marked
then, the same conflict screen occurs again and again....
Escaped it with "X".
I was installing from a mounted partition containing the rex tree
from ca. 2 weeks ago. So I'll see if a NFS-installation from our
local debian mirror will do it.
Q: Can one revert the data base to state (n-1); (n-2); ...? Or
perhaps just in a "known to be good" state when thing at this point
have run into an undesirable state? I've not passed the first select
session and am curious about a friendly installation order.
