Well, I prefer the cumbersome and stupid method
: for each new file, rename the
old one with a _BAK extension, and copy the new aside: In case of problem, it is
always possible to remove the newly copied one and recover the good old one.
Of course, with hundreds of files this becomes ridiculous; moreover, there is always
the risk of human error.
I could perhaps be considered as a paranoiac, but I am very cautious with all these
automated tools: before installing the package you spoke about, I removed flac with
gslap, and... I saw gslapt remove k3b and Xine too !
I had to reinstall them, and I
don't know wether I reinstalled all that was eliminated by gslapt: I can have overpassed
some package that gslapt removed too quickly for me to have noted it.
"installpkg" being a console tool, it is perhaps safer ? I use now gslapt only for installs,
never more for removals.
Anyway, I enjoy my flac music now with xmms. Great.
Thanks and bye
