zlib1g vs zlib1g-dev (potato)
i've got two debian boxes recently fsckd and partitioned and
installed via potato ISO cd roms.
on one, i downloaded the vpnd tarball and did
and voila, no troubles.
[vpnd from http://www.crosswinds.net/~anstein/unix/vpnd.html ]
on the other debian box, i get
Please install the package zlib 1.1.3 or later.
You can find it at:
If your system has libz.so installed please
make sure that the zlib-devel rpm is installed,
Building vpnd with runtime compression disabled.
# apt-get install zlib1g-dev

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:
zlib1g-dev: Depends: zlib1g (= 1:1.1.3-5) but 1:1.1.3-9 is to be installed
my /etc/apt/sources.list are set to potato:
#deb file:/cdrom stable main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian potato main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ potato/non-US main contrib non-free
1) why would zlib1g-dev and zlib1g versions not match?
2) what method could i have implemented to get one debian box to compile vpnd,
but not the other? tres bizarre.
