I filed a bug report last week, but haven't heard anything back; thought
maybe you folks might offer a solution.
Could it be a regression of this old/fixed bug?
The referenced offending file is different (now "GrampsWidgets.py"
instead "statusbar.py") but the error looks the same.
That didn't solve my problem directly, but it did trigger a thought.
Based on the manpage for sources.list ("with the most preferred source
listed first"), I actually believed that the order of lines in
/etc/apt/sources.list mattered, and since I had unstable listed first, I
thought my system was running unstable for the most part.
But this triggered thought sent me on a tangent, which led me to the
said (among other things):
...no matter what's in apt.conf.d, placed there by packages or
whatever. Sources.list currently behaves exactly the opposite vs
sources.list.d - I think the rule of least surprise should be followed
here, instead of trying to change all documentation and brainwash
users to forget about /etc/apt/sources.list
So I tinkered around in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d, and found the "local" file,
westk@westek:/etc/apt/apt.conf.d$ cat local
I changed "lenny" to "unstable", ran aptitude update and aptitude
install gramps, and now gramps works.
Dare I do a dist-upgrade now?
Yep, think I'm gonna try it.
