I expect them to stop taking advice from something that is not giving advice and is not intended to be an advisor in any way. I just don't understand the thought-process that results in persons telling apt-get to remove something they use on a day to day basis. It wouldn't matter what font or how many times aptitude told me kmail was "not required", I wouldn't ask for it's removal because I use kmail every day. If I did not already know how, I would look for a way to tell aptitude that kmail *is* _very much_ required. > I understand that in > stable in 99% times it's caused by user's fault: he've accidentally > removed kde metapackage or something. But how does that matter? Because we can't fix it, so we should move on to a problem we can fix. > It really seems that no OS can fix its users: there are morons no > matter what OS they use. I'm glad we agree, although I wouldn't use the term "moron" to refer to anyone participating in this thread. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
