2 rather strange issues on my sparc running 'testing'
Okay, I've had this sparc for a year or so, and up until today it was
running RedHat v6.2 without problems. I have gotten rather sick of
RedHat recently, and having had such a good time with debian on my x86
boxes, I decided to migrate this box over, with the intention of moving
2 others afterwards.
Anyway, I've managed to get the base system installed, however I am
having the following two problems...
1. When using vi to edit a file, it will not allow me to write any
changes to disk after modifying them. I can create a new file using
cat, and then copy it over to the correct file name, but vi just won't
do it for me.
2. The second problem involves using apt-get. I am getting an error
that a package has an incorrect 'Depends' field. The exact error is:
dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/available' near line 16078
'Depends' field, reference to 'libc6': version contains ' '
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
If any of you have the wisdom that is needed to solve these problems, I
would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
