Horribly, or otherwise.
There are always things to tweak, which is why you run SID in the first
place, the most recent example for me being an inconsistency with a
later version of tth being incompatible with ps2png in Lilypond.
Aptitude spelled it out for me.
As I hadn't begun to use Lilypond, I just uninstalled it to facilitate
installation of tth.
I'll reinstall Lilypond when it catches up.
But, no drama.
This is why you run SID.
There is no way that the system was rendered 'unusable'.
I could have left tth on backorder, until Lilypond caught up.
But by playing like this, in six to twelve months, you can be answering
these questions instead of asking them.
