But this is not a problem since it conflicts with the new package console-setup-linux.


I believe it now has the console-terminus font included so the console-terminus package can go. I had that package installed and after a restart my console's font did not change.

Time to go back to Ubuntu?

Well I got bit too on Monday, but it was my fault. I didn't read what was going to be removed. Then it got worse. Much worse. So I just reinstalled, restored my data, and learned a lesson.

Same thing can happen in any Debian / Debian-based system. Don't see the magic in Ubuntu.

Please stay on topic.
Talking about distro choice does not belong to Upgrade warnings forum.

Sorry for my frustration rant. Perhaps this is the wrong forum; however, I think it is important to understand what to do when dist-upgrades go bad. Let me explain. I have used many versions of Linux - Slackware, Red Hat, Suse, Ubuntu, Debian, Sidux, Aptosid - Debian is too far out of date for applications that are changing rapidly such as Gramps, which uses the latest Python and its libraries. Ubuntu is better but still has a problem because I would have had to install: a whole new version (after 8.0), all the applications, and find bug workarounds for some apps just to keep using the latest Gramps. Sidux and Aptosid had up-to-date libraries and worked exceedingly well with Gramps until Aptosid started loosing modules and libraries recently.

I really like Aptosid and have been trying to figure out how to keep using it and avoid full installs of operating systems. Although I know very little about Raid, I am thinking that getting another hard disk and using it with raid to keep a backup image of the whole disk on which Aptosid resides. That way I may be able to go back to my previous setup, when something goes wrong, and use the backup until the dist-upgrade is fixed. I think raid is for recovering from disk failure, but it may also work for the application described above. Other suggestions?

Simple. Wait! and not upgrade the system until the problem is solved,
or until the proper solution is provided. This forum is for that purpose.

and... always check if the output of apt-get has "The following packages will be REMOVED:"
and if you see it, say No, don't do dist-upgrade blindly, and check what's going on.

and... read the aptosid manual carefully, esp.
http://manual.aptosid.com/en/sys-admin- ... pt-upgrade
      Quote:

If the whole system is to be upgraded this is achieved through a dist-upgrade. You should always check Current Warnings on the aptosid main web site, and check the warnings against the packages that your system wants to dist-upgrade.

Seem like finally the issue with libgtk2.0-0 (and relative packages) is gone. Just did a d-u and nothing was removed. Smile

Thank you. Good information for me.

This sentence gave me an idea. I made a script to update, upgrade and then dist-upgrade only if it seems ok. Here it is

I like this. I need reminders.

Like others, I did a new dist-upgrade, and was able to reinstall the affected applications after that.

{ poulpillusion's post about script, and some responses here are split to other thread, and put into "User scripts & Dragons" forum.
http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... amp;t=1017
I don't like to do too much moderation, but the script contains error of doing "apt-get upgrade",
and it even before the warning is done.
I hope readers won't use this version of script until properly corrected... }

I missed the "do not apt-get upgrade" warning... sorry.

I fixed the script... maybe you will want to review it before I dare to put it back in this thread Wink

The only remaining package that would be removed here is :

Thats fine. It is replaced by a new one (console-setup and kernel-specific friends) so let it go. Smile

No moderation would be better, ideally we wouldn't need moderators at all. It's not a perfect world however.

Seems like a good example of adequate moderation: split, link, announcement & justification. Us humble users can't ask for more: thank you.
