I am tracking testing, but had gnome installed from unstable. Something
went kablooie the other day, and now I have a non-working gnome
installation. Trying to install gnome (some packages are still on the
system but unmanaged by dpkg, while others were erased by aptitude) I
get lots of errors like the following:
sudo aptitude install gnome Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree Reading extended state information
Initializing package states... Done
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies, some packages cannot be installed
E: Unable to resolve some dependencies!
Some packages had unmet dependencies. 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.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnome: Depends: gnome-desktop-environment (= 64) but it is not
Chasing dependencies, or installing from unstable, yields essentially
the same results. How can I get things stabilized again?
