I have these two packages installed:
However, when I try and remove the first one, the dependency list is
rather large and the programs that it would remove are pretty important
to me. Besides, the maintainers of those packages can't be having the
same problems as me since their packages installed fine. I removed a
large amount of old -dev packages (40+ megs) but that didnt fix the
problem. Neither libc6-dev nor stdc++2.9-dev are installed.
