I use ALT Linux 6, and I need to launch a Python 3 script which uses OpenGL and openCV, I realized that pip is absent in my Python installation which is already dumb), then somehow I figured that pip under Linux is called python-module-pip, so I write in terminal
apt-get install python-module-pip
And I get that 251 packages will be upgraded, 215 new installed, 776 removed, 62 MB downloaded, 2550 MB freed. Why is that so difficult to just install 1 package?
I haven't mentioned that I am now enforced to use Firefox 17.0 because I have 12 GB free disk space on my Linux partition, but it is not enough to upgrade Firefox when it also tries to pull many other packages, effectively upgrading the whole OS, the same as I physically cannot do an upgrade to ALT Linux 8.0 because there is not enough disk space to unpack all packages.
