I was hoping that:
| aptitude search '~i!~Odebian'
was the command that I ran successfully as part of the upgrade from
Sarge to Etch and had forgotten.
If it is the same command, it is now behaving quite differently. I
refrained from posting the output that it now produces because the
output is lengthy and I wanted to conserve bandwidth. But here are the
first few lines of that output:
| i a2ps - GNU a2ps - 'Anything to PostScript' conver
| i A abiword-common - WYSIWYG word processor based on GTK2
| i A abiword-gnome - WYSIWYG word processor based on GTK2/GNOME
| i abiword-help - online help for AbiWord
| i adduser - Add and remove users and groups
| i afio - archive file manipulation program
| i A akregator - RSS feed aggregator for KDE
| i alien - install non-native packages with dpkg
| i alsa-base - ALSA driver configuration files
| i alsa-oss - ALSA wrapper for OSS applications
| i alsa-utils - ALSA utilities
I hope that makes things clearer.
It is just a niggle. Etch works like a charm!
