Ack! Why? I've tried asking a number of people about this, but _why_
synaptic? What does it provide that I would find I couldn't live without?
I realize this is a predominantly Gnome-user list, so maybe you don't have
other GUI options, but for the full GUI KPackage seems much more useful and
for anything else it's aptitude. When I first tried synaptic, it had the
virtue of being really fast. Then they added more features until it got to
be as slow as kpackage. :-(
