Re: [vox-tech] Debian Unstable - apt strangeness



Quoting Matt Roper (matt@mattrope.com):

> I know that apt-get by itself won't touch /var/lib/dpkg/available

Oh?

uncle-enzo:~# cd /var/lib/dpkg
uncle-enzo:/var/lib/dpkg# ls -l available
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 3809571 Aug  9 02:58 available
uncle-enzo:/var/lib/dpkg# apt-get update

available-packages data only in /var/lib/apt/lists, then?
