Bug#161903: linuxconf: broken dependency on libgd1
When I invoke:
apt-get install linuxconf
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
linuxconf: Depends: libgd1 (>= 1.8.4-7)
E: Sorry, broken packages
After installing libgd1-xpm manually and and installing linuxconf
dpkg -i --force-depends linuxconf_....
the package installed and worked fine.
It seems that something is broken in the virtual package libgd1.
I'm using Debian GNU/Linux unstable.
