Description o.schnapauff 2000-10-29 15:52:49 UTC
update installs more packets than currently installed, and those are not only dependencies.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-31 15:42:22 UTC
Could you give some examples of the packages installed by an upgrade that you
thought were not necessary?

Comment 2 o.schnapauff 2000-11-01 15:23:44 UTC
Sorry I lost that list - _but_ and update should just not install _any_
packets. Unless they are already installed in an old version or required
by an dependency. My disk space runs tight and I cannot upgrade anymore
because every upgrade installs a bunch of things I just remove later...

Comment 3 Brock Organ 2000-11-07 14:40:27 UTC
hmmm ... there are a "base" set of packages that are always installed by an
upgrade ... if you are seeing packages other than these "base" packages, please
list them and we'll look at them individually, however, in general upgrades will
always ensure a "base" set of packages are installed ...
