View Full Version : [gnome] [SOLVED] Apt issues in Intrepid 8.10

December 21st, 2008, 12:22 AM
Whenever I install something with an apt, be it Synaptic, Add/Remove, or even the sudo apt command, the downloading works fine, but once it installs, it freezes at a random point, and sometimes when I restart the installation it'll freeze at a totally different point.

If I let it sit frozen for long enough, it installs perfectly and just fine, but this is still extremely annoying because I never know for sure if it's done, and if it's not, I have to remove the lock file, hope to **** I don't force quit autoremove too early, and then try again.

What gets me is this problem wasn't always here. It popped up randomly this morning.

Hey, it fixed itself! :D

Before apt was freezing EVERY time I used it, and now it never freezes. Just fixed itself as suddenly as it appeared.
