    [SOLVED] apt-get autoremove wants to uninstall most of my system

    Whenever I install packages by the command line, I always get a ton of suggested packages for autoremoval. Of coarse, most of those packages I actually need or use on a regular basis.

    Below is the output of 'sudo apt-get install autoremove':

    Code:
    jenkinbr@jenkinbr:~$ sudo apt-get autoremove 
    [sudo] password for jenkinbr:

    There's something very wrong there.
    Did you install ubuntustudio-desktop and/or ubuntu-desktop ?
    Is it possible to go online somewhere and do an upgrade ?

    Re: apt-get autoremove wants to uninstall most of my system

    I did install both packages (ubuntu-desktop was part of the ubuntu cd), while I had to install the ubuntustudio-desktop package seperatly because the computers I use to download have a maximum allowed modification space limit of ~1GB

    It would be possible to bring the PC to a friend's house, but would be rather tedious to do.

    Also, just though of this: could it have anything to do with using the aptoncd-metapackage to install software from the CDs that I make?

    @|{urse: it only takes the first byte, everything else is ignored. (I got bored)

    Do you actually have internet yourself at home or not at all ? Or is 1 Gb the internet download limit there ?

    And i think there must be a conflict with the packages somewhere.
    Or you have managed to remove something which was so vital that apt-get now suggests to remove almost all packages.

    Re: apt-get autoremove wants to uninstall most of my system

    I don't have internet at home. Currently I get all my internet access needs taken care of at the local college where I attend school. They run WinXP with CenturianGuard to lock down the hdd's to prevent any changes made on the hdd from staying after the computer is rebooted. Yhid involves the use of a swap file that stores the changes, rather than creating/modifying the actual file on disk. 1GB is the limit set on these swap files (not even sure if 'swap' is the right term here)

    As I have noted above, I have used the aptoncd-metapackage 's, but then I remove them later. Could this be part of the problem?

    Most likely the ubuntu-desktop package was uninstalled somehow. Try reinstalling it.

    I will check that out later.

    In the meantime, I will start the process of an update just in case, so I can select it later if I need to...
