After 'dpkg -i hurd_20050513-4_hurd-i386.deb,' the results follow:
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of hurd
hurd depends on libc0.3 (>= 2.3.2-ds1-21) however:
Package libc0.3 is not configured yet.
hurd depends on libncursesw (>=5.4-5)
....5=5.4-4 is installed
That is after I tried a few times to install libc0.3 and libncursesw.
After 'dpkg -i libc0.3_2.3.5-6_hurd-i386.deb' the following appear:
libc0.3 depends on hurd (>=20010718-1) however:
Package hurd is not configured yet.
I tried libncursesw and the reply is similar to the hurd results: libc0.3 in
not configured yet.
The K9 CDs have hurd_20050507-1 don't they? The 'dpkg -i libc0.3...' should
see that I believe. Apparently, I did something wrong on hurd installation.
I may need to start from scratch again now too, when I rebooted to go back to
my Sarge partition to send an email, fsck with Sarge said the hurd partition
had many problems. Last time, the /hurd/ext2fs.static was destroyed and I
reinstalled it all to get a hurd boot.
Send help if you can. Thanks,
