suggestion for dselect
This may be in the works, but I like the way smit(aix) handles software.
You can apply, commit and reject applied stuff. This would be nice in an
instance where a package is installed and broke/not working. For example,
I just d/l the newest netbase/netstd, and something appears wrong with
tcpd. On connects from another machine (irc) tcpd complains about
Feb 20 00:19:28 walterp tcpd: connect from unknown
Feb 20 00:21:49 walterp ircd: warning: can't get client address:
Transport endpoint is not connected
Now, I cant find the old netbase/netstd packages. I would like to have
tcpd work correctly, for the irc connects. If you have a solution for
this problem, let me know.
So, reject the newest version, and reapply the old(saved?) one?
P.S. oh, I would like to help the debian project. What can I do?!
