    Angry I've lost less! How could Debian do this to me?


    I think Wheezy must have been released because they have unfrozen the Testing repo. I found over 50 updates waiting for me this morning.

    One of them was for man-db, but when I checked it, it said it would remove less. What could I do? Man is essential. And I thought I could just reinstall less afterwards, but it won't let me unless I remove man-db. It's one or the other.

    Of course I can still use more, but you can't go backwards with more like you can with less. Less was my favorite pager. Why did Debian do this?

    It's due to a bug or change in less apparently.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    It's back again! There was another big update this week and I noticed that it included a change in man-db, so I tried sudo apt-get install less and it came over without threatening to remove anything. Well, that's a relief!
