I am about to try and install the git package. In Synaptic, in the dependencies tab, it writes:
- Breaks: bash-completion (<1:1.9-1)
- Breaks: bash-completion [italicized]
I have the latest version of bash-completion offered by the repository installed (version 1:2.8-1ubuntu1).
I have read that git comes with some adapted auto-completion features, and I guess that this feature won't actually prevent completion to work in bash, right?
apt-get -s install git command doesn't output anything regarding the bash-completion package.
So my questions are:
- Since I already have the latest version of the bash-completion package installed, what will happen to it upon the particular case of installing git?
- What does the second line in italic mean in this particular context? How are the two lines different and not merged in a single 'Breaks: bash-completion' line?
Edit (additional information)
- I have Linux Mint 19.1 (Ubuntu 18.04 base)
- The repository offers git 1:2.17.1-1ubuntu0.4
