wow ! Thanks, may I ask what you did during the 1s you spare not
copy/pasting the bug number. You're loosing everyone time:
- mine (obviously)
- yours in answering such a lame response
- anyone else that will find my post after a google search
Anyway I did search on google for a *while* before posting, and could
not find anything. I did repeat the search again for the last 15min:
long filename dpkg site:bugs.debian.org
long apt site:bugs.debian.org
long dpkg site:bugs.debian.org
It returned only one bug, but that was solved in 2002:
Could you *please* give me the bug number,
