It seems that my
aptitude is somehow broken
sudo aptitude update 0% [Working]Segmentation fault dmesg [223282.616599] aptitude: segfault at 67707f ip 7f954dcfae5d sp 7ffff5a5f950 error 4 in libapt-pkg-libc6.7-6.so.4.6.0[7f954dca5000+bd000]
so I would like to reinstall
aptitude by using
Unfortunately it seems
apt-get doesn't have a reinstall option.
Any ideas how I could get aptitude to work again?
Edit : It's possible that I found the root cause for aptitude's segfault. Here is how I can reproduce it:
- ssh remote login into the debian machine via cygwin's rxvt terminal (from a Windows-7 64bit german edition).
- enlarge the rxvt window so that it spans across two monitors (yes I have two monitors)
aptitude update. Note: when I resize the rxvt terminal to normal then I don't have these segfaults!
