help! netstd screwed up on updating potato
I am in the process of updating my potato system, and got the following error
wit the netstd package (this printout comes from attempting to reinstall the
package after the original at-get dist-update errors).
Can anyone tell me what to do? I had re-DL'ed the file just in case it was
corrupted. If an earlier thread has addressed this, I'm afraid I don't have
knowledge of it. I'm a bit afraid to try using X right now as I don't know
what's been changed, etc.
