Yes I agree, but apt doesn't save any log's, and there is no /var/log/apt
file. I know that aptitude, it you're using it, saves a log.
This is very puzzling, and have just posted to the synaptic mailing list about
this hard to find history file.
I'll post back if I get a reply from anybody there.
This is all a bit academic, but it would be nice to find out where Synaptic's
history file is saved on the harddrive.
