greets! I just did a dist-upgrade (to R14 Jessie; exegnu) somewhat incorrectly, it made a lot of changes I hadn't intended but that's user error for the most part. one error was not filtering out stuff I consider junk, for instance 'games'. I thought I'd try purging them the so-called easy way using kpackage but when I get set to remove kdegames-trinity, it _looks_ like tde-trinity will go along it. I know this has to do with 'meta-packages' but I don't understand the implications. one gets the same result from apt-get. I'm happy, happier in fact, to do all of this using apt-get (or aptitude). I'd love a magical incantation or rather guidance on how to formulate one to remove this junk: games edutainment education science f. -- Felmon Davis Every silver lining has a cloud.
