Re: apt-get problems for unmet dependencies
i have two main questions:
1) since someone else installed Debian on this pc i am working on, i need to know how to check
which version i am currently using of Debian (stable/testing/unstable). These all infos i got from
Linux 2.4.21 i686 unknown
Try "cat /etc/debian_version".
Also look in "/etc/apt/sources.list" for a clue.
2)i try to install the following packages via
#apt-get install <package-name>
no problems with 1,2,3 but when i come up to the last i receive error message like this:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
tk8.3-dev: Depends: xlibs-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages
and prompts me again.
If you're installing from the net, make sure you do an "apt-get update"
before installing packages.
You might try "apt-get -f install".
You might try searching bugs.debian.org for a bug in the installation
routine of tk8.3.dev.
You might try using aptitude instead of apt-get: "aptitude update"
followed by "aptitude install tk8.3-dev". I believe aptitude handles
dependencies a little better than does apt-get.
