RE: xcdroast in sid/unstable not installable?

Especially since dselect doesn't, in fact, handle dependencies superior to
apt, since they both use the SAME dependency mechanism.

Something else is at work here.  Did you, perhaps, forget to update before
trying to install xcdroast, and remembered to do that when you used dselect?

What ELSE did dselect decide to install on your box when you did this?

good point! it worked.

I have never paid attention to dselect since I installed debian first -
a horrible experience. Since then I allways make a minimal install and
apt-get what I want.

But now I realized that dselect handles dependencies superior to apt.
How comes i thought they use the same database.

thank you!!!  (a third time today)
