While performing a d-u today, I encountered this error. I am currently unsure if it is something I have caused, so I am just going to mention here and cross my fingers that it wasn't. :3

Try to purge the packages involved and check if you need any of them, libsnmp15 has most likely been pulled in by hplip (a framework for certain, mostly inkjet based, HP printers). So if hplip is all what's to be removed by "apt-get remove --purge libsnmp-base libsnmp15 libsnmp30", that would be the easiest workaround (of course, only if you don't use a HP printer).

This doesn't make it less of a bug in Debian's net-smnp packaging though.

Thanks for the response, slh. I will do a thorough search to see it has been reported.


Just to put some closure to this issue, and because as of lately ``unstable'' aptosid has been rock solid. so I am free to play and have fun, I must accept that it was my fault somehow.

I want to mention that I have two installs now of the aptosid team's newest release, one being my wittle baby good time system, and the other a pure vanilla experience with no modifications at all ( other than installing Terminus, Terminus everywhere. ) I did not encounter the error I mentioned above at all, and I have updated fully as of a few hours ago.

That being the case, I must accept responsibility and confess I have caused it. In case anyone was concerned, even just a little bit.

Sorry if I bothered.
