Re: dselect oddities
You put unstable in dselects install list. You then proceeded
not to tell dslect to put ewverything on hold (as I have explained
earlier, this involves hitting = twice on the right line in dselect).
You then proceeded to install. Not currently being able to
read minds, dselect did what you told it to -- not what you
meant. Mind reading software is at least a decade away.
Why did you think dselect would just upgrade applications and
not libraries? Why did you not put stuff on hold? Why on earth did
you place unstable in the path in the forst place?
dpkg -i slrn*.deb would have worked, or told you about missing
libraries, if any.
stable and bleeding edge are not compatible
But the man who has freed himself of stains and has found peace of
mind in an upright life, possessing self-restraint and integrity, he
is indeed worthy of the dyed robe. 10
