Hey gang, I waited far to long to do a dist-upgrade on my wifes old dell
craptop. I'm getting a ?script? failure/loop that I have to use control
Z to end thus locking me out of further apt actions.
Further dkpg, apt-get attempts are met with resource busy.
It looks like there are about 10 items that will have to be "forced"
to be upgraded but I cant seem to get the syntax right to do so.
Both # apt-get -f install & # dpkg --configure -a trigger the bad script.
How do you get around: Unable to lock the administration directory
(/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
Would someone post some proper syntax for usages of the of the "dpkg"
--force options. I trying not to just use "-all".
