    DebianThe latest version of Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody) has been released. This revision includes a selection of security and important package updates (and some package removals). All users running Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r0 should upgrade to 3.0r1 via an “apt-get upgrade”. Full details can be found in Martin Schulze’s post

    In my pre-woody upgrade testing, I found the ‘apt-get install’ stage doing some very stupid things, like removing debconf and xbase-clients. Those particular examples were fixed by twiddling the packages, but I wouldn’t want to bet that there aren’t other similar things we didn’t spot.

    Fact is that in the ‘apt-get install’ stage above you’re asking an old and rather broken version of apt to do some really quite complicated dependency calculations. In general, I’ve found that the old dselect handles those much more smoothly than the old apt did.

    There was quite a debate about this before the release, and I don’t think it’s fair to brush that off with “he’d just missed that bit”.

    OK, I totally missed that. There was certainly something we decided should be changed after the woody release. I guess upgrading only base systems or upgrading sequentially doesn’t show up all the problems. My apologies robster. =)
