Comment Re:package manager (Score 1) 328

Apparently my learned friend is in the stone age of package management :-P

aptitude keeps track of when it installs a package to satisfy a dependency and then uninstalls it when it is no longer needed to satisfy any dependencies. If you want to install a library for a non package managed program (e.g. you want to compile the latest wine) you can just use apt-get which doesn't mark them for removal when they're not depended on.

HTH
Cheers & God bless
