RE: Newbie apt-get question


It is always good to ask the obvious.  Actually I have rebooted the machine
after every upgrade or install, just to make sure!

Another gentleman was asking about my sources.list.  It has the following

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main non-free contrib

Is that correct??

As for kde, the error that I get is:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kde: Depends: konsole but it is not going to be installed or
                konsole3 but it is not installable

Thanks again,

Yeah, that's 3.3.6.  Also, I get an XFree86 version number as the 
next line under vendor release number, but maybe that was added in 4.

I hesitate to ask the obvious, but have you logged out of your X 
session and logged back in since doing the upgrade?

Also, I'm running 4.1 but I have no /var/log/xfree86.log.  Just my 
gdm logs and an old old xdm.log

That seems right.  It should announce it's going to download a whole 
pile of packages when you do that.

What exactly is the dependency error you are getting?
