Recursive package error with dselect (libc6 and SpamAssassin)
For quite some time I've been trying to resolve a recursive package
listing with Woody.
How can I fix this so dselect works properly again? Are there cache
files that I can clear?
In the meantime I've been using apt but that's not a solution I'd like
to stick with.
Here's a snip from dselect:
dselect - recursive package listing mark:+/=/-

Here's a bit more info too:

I have installed some software outside of the Debian package world but
nothing system level. I always look for the software through Debian
before resorting to source builds and installs.
