Aptitude 0.6.5: log report
Thu, Mar 22 2012 00:02:20 -0400


Be warned...libpcre3 8.30-1 makes for an un-runnable system, at least it
did here. I solved it by downgrading to 8.12-4 again which contains
libpcre.so.3. Apparently the new version doesn't.

Aptitude 0.6.5: log report


Thu, Mar 22 2012 00:02:20 -0400






Be warned...libpcre3 8.30-1 makes for an un-runnable system, at
least it


did here. I solved it by downgrading to 8.12-4 again which
contains


libpcre.so.3. Apparently the new version doesn't.









I hit the same problem on an upgrade this morning.* I solved it by
manually downloading the 8.12-4 deb from the archives (I went to
the libpcre3 package page, went to download the latest version but
where the list of ftp mirrors appears I copied the link address
into my browser.* I then backspaced to remove the package name and
get a directory listing so I was then able to find the older
package).



I downloaded it and installed with dpkg -i.



I then went into aptitude and found the package there and put a
hold on that version.* I was then able to get aptitude to properly
re-install desktop-utils (which meant for instance that until that
point I was unable to run nautilus).

Default Problematic upgrade

Thank you both. I can confirm that this upgrade completely breaks systems.

I'm a bit of a wimp, as well as a neophyte, so I bailed out and restored
a VM snapshot.


Now I understand how the package that was *not* upgraded croaked the
system, because the package that *was* upgraded has its SONAMEs
completely munged.

Nasty! Sid is an unstable kid.

For the future you may want to use 'F' (forbid version)

Kind regards,
