Bug#68373: fresh install: some dependency problems ?
Another small issue I had was that after a first pass at installing
packages, apt told me it had problems unpacking some packages, and that
it could not install or configure (was not clear, but I'd say it was a
configuration problem, as only package names were given, not full package
filenames) the following: gmc, rstart, rstartd.
It then asked me to press enter, went on configuring packages, and the 3
ones there went OK.
It then told me some package installs went wrong and suggested to retry,
which I accepted... just to be told no more packages were to be installed :)
I had chosen "simple" as install choice and was asked for task packages.
I selected the following ones (listing is from 'ls -d /usr/doc/task*'):
task-c-dev task-gnome-desktop task-x-window-system
task-devel-common task-gnome-games task-x-window-system-core
(indeed task-gnome-desktop and task-x-window-system-core were automatically
I'll keep this test install partition around for a while. I'm not sure
how I can track the installation order, which would have probably helped
to spot what looks like missing deps. Maybe the timestamps on dpkg/info/*.list
files will be enough, but if anyone has a better idea, I'll take it.
Uh, I forgot: nice work, guys ! :)
