When I performed the recent dist-upgrade, it removed pidgin along with libpurple and a bunch of other random packages.

You can probably get them back, it's just weird how it forcefully removed that application.

the only thing strange in this case is, that you find it strange Smile
stuff gets removed in unstable from time to time, and specially after debian releases, when lots of transitions happen.

apt told you it was going to remove these packages. it's up to you to react to that.

today d-u left untouched pidgin, but instead it did something wrong, very wrong, maybe with xorg? as the system become painfully slow, almost unusable, and the CPU is almost all the time at 100%.

catalinus,

please do not highjack threads. start a new one and give as much info as possible.
/var/log/dpkg.log has all the packages that were updated.
