One theme, sddm-theme-breeze, is apparently a KDE theme that installed a large part of
KDE into my solydx system and then quit halfway.
I lost the error messages(something about held programs).
I restarted synaptic and then deleted in two parts (breeze-icon-theme was sucked into the installation).
But apparently the uninstall was not complete. I could no longer boot.
I ran boot-repair which partially got me back.
Now can only boot like this:
Code: Select all
computer login: ..... password: ........ : startx
Worst of all it completely borked the contents of /usr/share/solydxk/ trying
to convert my system to KDE. With that kind of destruction that is visible
even to ignorant me, I see no option but to re-install my Solydx system.
Is there a simple way to identify dangerous packages in synaptic so this doesn't happen again?
"Dangerous" means quitting halfway through the install with an unrecoverable error.
This is only a problem because I can never rely on the Synaptic option "Mark for Complete Removal"?
Is that option optional? i.e. is the package builder free to build in Complete Removal or to omit it?
In my limited experience failure to Completely Remove , leaves poisonous detritus scattered all over the host system.
