    Gnome-print broken in Sid?
    Contributed by Anonymous on Thursday, February 28 @ 20:45:08 GMT

    Package Management
    During my last upgrade of sid I didn't notice that due to a dependency issure, most of my core GNOME packages were removed. It seems that there are some circular dependencies on gnome-print.

    rob: This problem should be resolved in today's dinstall.

    I had the chance to notice it before downloading the packages.

    dselect is quite usefull for these problems.

    with gnomprint mared as "kept back" there was no problem whit the upgrade.

    I apt-get dist-upgrade'd late last night, and like the poster most of my major gnome packages were removed. It is indeed a circular dependency problem among the various libgnomeprint* packages. I downloaded libgnomeprint-data, libgnomeprint-bin, and libgnomeprint15 from incoming.debian.org and was able to reinstall my missing packages.

    I'd like to point out that this case is a poster child for why just "upgrade" is sometimes a good idea 🙂

    If you don't mind half of your system being held back most of the time... 😉

    Otherwise, use apt-get -u dist-upgrade or a good frontend like aptitude to avoid this kind of desaster.

    personally, i prefer checking over apt-get -u dist-upgrade before doing anything (it gives you a list and asks permission to continue. the list includes all packages upgraded. new packages added, and any packages removed)

    you can usually notice if it's going to kick off a bunch of stuff that way. 🙂

    The man-page for apt-get says:

    apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones if necessary.

    How wise is it that due to a dependency in the gnomeprint packages, the whole of GNOME was removed? Isn't GNOME an "important" set of packages?

    It did ask you if you wanted to continue.
