Description Nigel Henry 2007-11-19 15:10:55 EST
Description of problem: 
After running apt-get update, run synaptic. Choose a single package to install 
(with no deps), click on apply, then click on apply in summary window. This is 
followed by instant crash of synaptic. Strangely I have been able to install 2 
packages with no deps on separate occasions with synaptic, and had thought it 
was a problem with Installing a package with loads of deps. Mplayerplug-in for 
example, where synaptic had crashed. Mplayerplug-in subsequentently installed 
ok using apt-get install. 
Strace output attached. 
Ist time I've had a problem with synaptic on a Fedora install since FC1. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Apart from the 2 occasions when I did manage to install 2 single packages on 
separate occasions, now it crashes when trying to install anything 
Steps to Reproduce: 
Actual results: 
Expected results: 
Additional info: 
Please see this bugreport that I filed against apt, and subsequently changed 
to a problem with fedora-package-config-apt by the maintainer. I don't know if 
the synaptic problem may be allied to this package
