Gnome2: a lot of broken packages (aptitude)
When I mark gnome (metapackage, version 20) in aptitude almost all
dependent packages are broken (red background).
Is this a normal situation? I mean, should I install gnome regardless of
the background color? If not, how can I found out, why almost all
packages get marked as broken?
Further aptitude tells me, that the following packaes are on hold:
libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2, perl-base, gcc-2.95, cpp-2.95, perl,
perl-modules, libpng3, wireless-tools 25-2, drm-trunk-module-src
The only package that I set on hold was wireless-tools. What could have
made all the other packages set on hold?
I am running Debian testing and ben's kernel 2.4.20 (compiled on 24. Dec
2002) on an iBook (11.2002)
I know I ask a lot of questions at the same time, but I hope some of you
have time to give me a few hints.
Thanks a lot in advance,
