The above behaviour will not happen with Stable or Testing.
Begging your pardon, Dave. I only use Testing, but still wave woody, 12.4.18-bf2.4, installed
for fallback, and this is the second time apt-get dist-upgrade wanted to uninstall kde. After
getting bit the first time, I do check what's going to happen before I act and use the -s
All the postings have been informative for me, a newbie of sorts. If dist-upgrade has unmet dependencies
causing it to remove kde, then something is wrong somewhere and upgrade is not fixing it, just allowing it
to continue. This may be tell-tell for an experienced user/programmer but for a newbie it just conpletes
the circle of confusion and gets nothing fixed. I have fixed my debian system to a large degree but still
have problems with sound and YMF724R card(posted on this list page but not replied to). Wish I could get
a response to it like I did to this one.
