ok... the subdirectory /partial/ in /var/cache/apt/archives/ is empty.
there are packages that seem to be partial, and other packages in the
archive that are not installed... for instance, x86 seems partial because
i can't find the program that allows you to change over to 4. the
installed gcc is 2.95.4 but there is a deb package for 3.0 there.
right now, i can't do anything with dselect & friends because it is
clogged up with all the freshly deleted gnome and ximian packages trying
to get re-installed, as well as old libwrapguile1 (which isn't in the
debs, but is needed).
bilbo:/home/dmallery>> apt-get install libwrapguile1

E: Couldn't find package libwrapguile1
bilbo:/home/dmallery>> dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
/usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: xserver-xfree86 is not fully installed
bilbo:/home/dmallery>> XFree86 -configure
bash: XFree86: command not found
so, my question is: do i also have to delete all these packages from the
archive and then burn what little bandwidth there is in northern new
mexico to re-load them later??? should i just shuffle them off to another
still stuck and no gnome...
