Aptitude Package Manager

Install, remove and upgrade software packages


aptitude is a package manager with a number of useful features, including: a mutt-like syntax for matching packages in a flexible manner, dselect-like persistence of user actions, the ability to retrieve and display the Debian changelog of most packages, and a command-line mode similar to that of apt-get.

aptitude is also Y2K-compliant, non-fattening, naturally cleansing, and housebroken.

This package contains an EXPERIMENTAL version of aptitude that includes a GTK+-based graphical interface. It is INCOMPLETE and may not work properly. If you do not need a GUI or prefer a more stable interface, you can instead use the version of aptitude found in the package "aptitude".
