Kyle, I agree that we need to improve fink to respond better in those circumstances. The problem has been with us ever since users have been prompted for a choice (from late October or early November). For example, if a user attempts to install bundle-tetex, he/she is repeatedly asked to choose between system-tetex and another package, even though all of those other packages conflict with system-tetex.
The improvement that we need, though, is not a restructuring. It is to implement checking of the "Conflicts" field. At present, fink basically ignores it and only dpkg sees it at the end of the process. If you've read the code and have suggestions about implementing this additional part of fink, that would be great. -- Dave _______________________________________________________________ Don't miss the 2002 Sprint PCS Application Developer's Conference August 25-28 in Las Vegas -- http://devcon.sprintpcs.com/adp/index.cfm _______________________________________________ Fink-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/fink-devel
