some weeks ago I made a fresh instrallation on a notebook with debian/stable.
Well, then I started a aptitiude full-upgrade, but it did not work. I found
out, the reason for it, was, that the installed version of tar could not
unpack the packages of debian/testing.
I could fix this, by copying the binary of tar from another debian/testing-
machine to the stable machine with rsync.
However, that is why I mention this:
- the debian/testing-package of tar could not be installed, as it could not be
unpacked by the installed tar binary
- tar should be updated in debian/stable before the next major release,
otherwise many people might get a lot of problems during the next upgrade.
I just wanted to mention this "bug", maybe some people might be interested in
it. Thank you very much for reading this.
