I wanted to uninstall the
libboost libraries. I wrote in the console:
sudo apt-get remove libboost-*
But looking more precisely at the console output, I noticed
apt-get was ready to remove several packages that looks completely unrelated to
Although I may not use once in a month
unity, I don't want them to be removed. And I can't understand they are programmed for removal ?
So I am wondering if there could be a mess in the dependence tree, and if there were any operation to put the situation back to normal ?
More precisely the end of the console output is:
