error exit status 30


Installed as Knoppix 3.2, upgraded to Debian 3. apt-get upgrade has worked fine for last 2 months. After apt-get update & upgrade today, tetex-extra upgrade causes an error.

What does Exit status 30 mean ?

Still don't know what error exit status 30 means (apart from something bad) ;-)
Fixed my problem by removing and then reinstalling. All seems fine now.

dpkg --purge --force-remove-reinstreq tetex-extra
dpkg --purge --force-remove-reinstreq tetex-bin

apt-get install -f tetex-bin
apt-get install -f tetex-extra

As have been emphasized by countless many in #debian on freenode, Knoppix may be "essentially Debian" but the thing is it is NOT Debian (i.e. type /topic when you arrive in #debian) for otherwise it would have been called not something else but Debian. Knoppix employs a strange mix of Stable, Testing and Unstable packages. It may be an "easy-to-install" variant of portable Debian, so easy that Grandma Tilley can do it but sooner or later problems will arise. The only uncertainty is whether such a problem is major enough to completely bork your install.

I'm still hearing of folks on Knoppix been told to to apt-get for a kernel-image and related dependencies e.g. module-init-tools via backports instead of either Debian Testing or Debian Unstable main if they want not to roll out their own kernels. For the uniniated e.g. fresh windows migrant, after a few months of honeymoon, the agony may soon take over. Such incompatibilities with the Debian pool can only and probably be resolved if either Knoppix comes up with its own compatible repos or conforms in totality with Debian e.g. tracking but only one branch e.g. Sarge.
