That combined with a few of the ideas on this list are exactlly what I
was talking about. If there was an ability in Synaptic that once you
install packages it puts a little "tick" mark in a log file, then if you
choose to remove to a certain point then it removes everything back to
>>Actually, what I would like to see is a feature in Synaptic that would
>>roll back the previous install (and dependencies...)
/"Sure" one may say,"but you don't have that opportunity with GUI
frontends!?!" Exactely Do not use them. If you do not know what you are
doing learn it and stop whining about lack of backup-functionality.
Nice attitude, thus why people are scared of linux. People complain
about Windows users and boast about how Linux is better than Windows.
Great, however and I am not saying this to be evil or anything but
besides Ubuntu the linux community is pretty much full of stuck up nerds
that thus quote RTFM on everything even if there is no manual. There is
an issue here where someone has got to give. Windows, Mac, or Linux.
We've already seen Mac fold by going to Intel which is a *bleh* move
however they're getting the idea. Hell, Apple built OSX on top of BSD so
they at least have half a clue on how to make an OS. Make it easy enough
for anyone to use and you can actually put a price tag to it (and make
some decent money). Maybe it is just me...however that would make some
sense. Make an OS that people would WANT to give up the others
for...even if you don't charge for it and the money should follow.
That's some serious abuse of CVS/Time and geek ability ;-)
You need to be using Gentoo for that sort of "Cause I can" behaviour/
I'd like to know if there is a manual on how to do this? If not will you
T/here's many times I decide to play around with something that installs
50 extra dependencies, and it would be nice to just "undo" an install...
I ran across this myself. While installing zope two days ago my computer
overheated (I live in Arizona on a corner apartment, yes with full
airconditioning it still gets 80F here) and instantly just rebooted,
*beep* and shuts down completely. So when I rebooted the computer and
came back up I had half packages installed which made synaptic and apt
very upset. I along with some other people would love to see a "GoBack"
or a "uninstall last installed package" feature. Regardless of what some
others may say.
