i just tried to install "nagios-common" and it
removed a lot of my good programs--gimp, xine,
mplayer.... that doesn't even begin to scratch
the surface. (i'm still trying to access the
totality of what it removed.) from what's left,
i may have to rebuild the box. (mplayer won't
even install now.)
why would a "network monitoring tool" need to
decimate a system?
it jacked me up!
i was running sid.
