APT-GET UPGRADE VS DIST-UPGRADE
Can someone please tell me why dist-upgrade wants to remove kde
kdeaddons kvim vimpart,
which I have installed and want to keep, while upgrade retains kde and
upgrades several of its
components. Once before dist-upgrade removed about half of all
installed packages, which took
some time and effort to reinstall, and I'm not even sure that everything
has been put back the way
it was. Since then, I always use the -s option before doing any upgrading.
Any enlightenment on my part is appreciated. Please copy my email
address as I not subscribed.
Thanks for your help,
