setup: difficult to uninstall packages with requirements
Sat Mar 21 08:21:00 GMT 2009
I was trying to uninstall gcc... not easy, I must say: I cycle one
element to "Uninstall", but as soon as I touch an element that requires
that one, the first one changes to "Keep".
Also, it seems that gcc-java depends on gcc-mingw-java and also the
reverse so, in fact, it's currently impossible to deinstall all of gcc
in a single setup-1.7 execution.
I don't know, maybe instead of "rolling between choices" they should be
drop down menus?
This way I could "jump" directly from "current version" to "Uninstall"
without cycling thru "upgrade" (and subsequent "Keep" of all requirements).
