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.
How could I get
aptitude to work again?
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 64-bit 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 segmentation faults!
