[Touch-packages] [Bug 574287] Re: tasksel: forcefully removes packages when tasks overlap

2021-02-04 Thread Peter Ludwig
Today I used tasksel to add "lubuntu-desktop" to an "ubuntu-desktop"
installation. Already installed and noticed by tasksel was additionally:
"SSH-Service" and "Print Server".

The installation of "lubunut-desktop" went fine. I logged in to lubuntu-
desktop and now I wanted to remove the "ubuntu-desktop" only ... because
it is an odroid and disk space is precoius.

I ran tasksel and deselected "ubuntu-Desktop".

I was logged in and was able to see how my desktop, start menue, icons
... were removed / uninstalled until in the end a completely naked
dektop was left. I was not able to run tasksel again. So I had to
reinstall again. :((

Ubuntu 18.04 on odroid u3.
 Image name: 
"ubuntu-18.04-4.16.0-v7-desktop-odroid-u2-u3-20190308_shrink.img.xz"

  TEST CASE

  1. Boot Lucid LiveCD

  2. run "sudo tasksel" and select "virtual machine host"

  3. run "sudo tasksel" and deselect "virtual machine host"

  4. watch how tasksel uninstalls your system

  OBSERVATIONS

  What seems to happen is that apt vengefully removes ALL of the items
  associated with one task, including several base dependencies of other
  tasks (e.g. ubuntu-desktop)

  One illustrative example is the openssh-server task:
  This one includes the packages openssh-server, tcpd and libwrap0.
  From a normal ubuntu-desktop (e.g. ~liveCD) both tcpd and libwrap0 are 
already installed, and the task-install pulls in only openssh-server.
  However when the task is removed, all these three packages (openssh-server, 
tcpd and libwrap0) are forcefully removed.
  Since libwrap0 is a core dependency of gnome, a large part of gnome will be 
removed alongside the removal of the task.

Well, I wasn't as lucky as Colonel Angus and my system wasn't a fresh
install. Love having my day and OS ruined by a ten year old bug that
doesn't even have importance decided.

If you're not planning to ever fix it maybe just add a warning to taskel
that this tool isn't fit for regular users and we should not follow
tutorials and just use apt instead?

The easiest way out would be to just remove tasksel once the d-i images
are gone, and it's no longer needed.

2020-05-10 Thread Colonel Angus
Like Elias M Ward, I installed lamp-server using taskel. It didn't work
as expected and upon uninstalling, taskel removed everything. I came
back to my desk, and the system was shot. No network, no desktop,
nothing. Luckily, this was a fresh install, so a reinstall was the
quickest way to get a usable system.

Very, very poorly thought out.

Ten years later? Wow.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 574287] Re: tasksel: forcefully removes packages when tasks overlap

2019-12-22 Thread Oliver Gerlich
WTF. I was uninstalling the ubuntu-mate-desktop task with tasksel (while
ubuntu-desktop was still checked in the list), and it removed basically
everything. Afterwards all tasks in the tasksel list were unchecked.
This is definitely not the expected behavior: when I uncheck a specific
task, I don't expect other tasks to be removed as well.

I suggest to disable the package-removal functionality in tasksel.
Alternatively, show a big warning when tasksel is about to remove
anything. There are lots of warning posts about this behavior of tasksel
all over the net, but if the warning does not appear in the application
itself, I'm unlikely to see it before it's too late.

2019-03-22 Thread Elias M Ward
I just ran into this bug. Started uninstalling everything when I was
removing lamp-server. Thankfully I caught it at about 15% and killed the
session when I started noticing things disappearing. This is a critical
disastrous bug. How has it not been touched in so long?

If it's not going to get fixed, at least remove tasksel out of
production or at least remove the remove function from it. This is
ridiculous.

What is going on with this bug?

I wanted to install SSH Server on my new Ubuntu 18.04 system, and so
unchecked the things that were installed already, checked SSH Server ..
and it's been busily uninstalling EVERYTHING. This is a disaster.
