So what, if anything, happens if you mix |
Not a lot, as I understand it - only one package tool can access the database at a time, they put a lock on it. I use Synaptic most of the time on Ubuntu, but if I do stuff from the command line with apt-get it doesn't foul up the database.
Apt doesn't remember which of your installs are "automatic" last I looked, so if it installs something as a dependency it stays installed even if you uninstall the original package. So use aptitude even if installing from the command line.
