Error, with texinfo depending on ncurses >= 5.6-i486-3 (not in the repo, so far as I can see).
Should be rebuilt against 5.6-i486-2.

 ??? Strange. I don't think I've ever upgraded ncurses, so it should be whatever was released with 5.9 Standard. I'll check it out... Thanks.

A message appeared at the slapt-get installation:
Code: [Select]
Executing install script for texinfo-4.13a-i586-1vl59...
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `accounting.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `time.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `which.info.gz'

I'm not sure if it affects anything. Perhaps something wrong in the doinst.sh?
But nevermind if it's normal.

 ;D I've set doinst.sh to delete any existing /usr/info/dir and regenerate it. That message indicates that there are three faulty info files in /usr/info/ - install-info is complaining as it rebuilds dir. I'll have to see if I can track down what packages they come from, since the problem will be in those packages rather than anything else.
