Groundhog day (was Galeon 1.3.10 on sid (ppc)
Sorry to re-post but I'm really stuck (I've been reduced to reinstalling
woody on another partition, just to be able to function).
To recap, using aptitude, I installed Galeon 1.3.10 (which seems to run
although there were some errors reported on installation). My problems
started when I tried to remove it because of the errors reported. If I
try to hold it, aptitude tries to reinstall it. If I try to remove it,
it reports that it is so broken that it needs to be reinstalled before I
can remove it. And if I try to reinstall it (it is flagged for upgrade)
Preconfiguring packages ...

Ack! Something bad happened while installing packages. Trying to

Press return to continue.
Frightening what ? ;) I tried manually removing the Galeon files but that
didn't get me far either.
I upgraded to sid with some trepidation, given my relative inexperience
with Linux and Debian (I've only tried Debian) but I was beginning to
find woody a bit limiting. Am I out of my depth here? "Oh yes he is",
they cried ;)
If someone could advise me how to expunge Galeon, I may be able to make
strategies for business
