Well, the update-rc.d man page says that this will only work if
/etc/init.d/wwwoffle has also been removed.
I can't imagine why that would be the case.
Anyone, wtf is this wwwoffle thing anyway? I don't have a man
page or an info page for it, and there is nothing in /usr/share/doc.
(Ok, google says wwwoffle homepage is http://www.gedanken.demon.co.uk,
and it's the World Wide Web Offline Explorer).
And why can't we uninstall it without also uninstalling
task-dialup (via apt-get remove)? Does anyone have any
advice on this?
That's correct. wwwoffle allows you to download a website and browse it
offline at a later time.
