SOLVED cabextract 774804

For those in testing who came up on the libmspack install that affects cabextract, what I have done is as root

echo cabextract hold | dpkg --set-selections

according to http://osdir.com/ml/general/2015-01/msg07784.html

it should clear up soon.  When it does

echo cabextract install | dpkg --set-selections 

will unhold.

Are you sure you want to install/upgrade the above packages? [Y/n/?/...]

Deb Devs seems too slow to adjust them, both packages have really serious for not says critical bug issue. I wish they'll run faster.
Well done to make aware people on testing/sid regarding these bugs.

Re: SOLVED cabextract 774804

Do i need "cabextract" at all? his new "libmspack0" which is parked for a long time in transition on jessie.
I just want to know do i really need to have both cabextract/libmspack0 on my system, can i safely remove?

Cabextract is a program which unpacks cabinet (.cab) files, which are a form of archive 
Microsoft uses to distribute their software and things like Windows Font Packs.
The purpose of libmspack is to provide both compression and decompression of some
loosely related file formats used by Microsoft. 
The intention is to support all of the following formats: 
COMPRESS.EXE [SZDD], Microsoft Help (.HLP), COMPRESS.EXE [KWAJ], 
Microsoft Cabinet (.CAB), HTML Help (.CHM), Microsoft eBook (.LIT), 
Windows Imaging Format (.WIM), Exchange Offline Address Book (.LZX).

I never use any those things like .wim, cab chm, lit etc...
Edit: got rid the cabextract because I have not any interest to use it. Thanks to paxmark1 for describing some info.

Thanks in advance,
Nili

Re: SOLVED cabextract 774804

I didn't remove cabextract because i have reading around needed for some Microsoft's TrueType fonts like Arial , Verdana etc... I want to use these fonts so i didn't remove cabext.... Today transition for cabextract/libmspack0 ended too much time run but ended. In Jessie the libmspack0 is fixed.

Start-Date: 2015-02-08  08:59:18
Commandline: apt-get dist-upgrade
Install: libmspack0:i386 (0.5-1, automatic)
Upgrade: cabextract:i386 (1.4-4+b1, >1.4-5)
End-Date: 2015-02-08  08:59:22

Now remain only a fix for dpkg which still is in transition.

cabextract [SOLVED]

cabextract:
  Installed: 1.4-5
  Candidate: 1.4-5
  Version table:
 *** 1.4-5 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

dpkg 1.17.24 [FIXED][SOLVED] too by debian.
