Re: problems installing sendmail

In Sun, 26 Mar 2000 15:23:26 +0200 (CEST), de profundis Taco IJsselmuiden <taco@wep.tudelft.nl> cum veritas scribat

I'm having troubles with IPC (or IPX, I can't remember which one it was) 
too. It acts quite different from other machines (there are about 20 machines 
running in the same kind of setup). 

It dies quite often with apt-get saying dpkg has died for some reason.
(and I am using slink)

for example this is my current situation : 

# apt-get install at
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:
  at: Depends: mailx but it is not installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
# apt-get update 

and it has not come back for an hour after typing the last command.. ;(
