Description Dmytro O. Redchuk 2005-03-17 19:34:21 MSK
Just look:
# apt-get remove kernel-image-std-smp
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package kernel-image-std-smp is a virtual package provided by:
  kernel-image-std-smp#2.4.26-alt9 2.4.26-alt9 [Installed]
  kernel-image-std-smp#2.4.26-alt6 2.4.26-alt6
You should explicitly select one to install.
E: Package kernel-image-std-smp is a virtual package with multiple good providers.

apt knows that there is only one package installed, but claims it can not remove
it because there are multiple of them.

In better case ;) apt should say "You should explicitly select one to remove."
at least :-)

It can not found the right direction?

Fixed in 0.5.15cnc6-alt11.
