Hi Bret,


Yes I did.  It was still the same.


# apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  linux-image-2.6.18-6-486
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
1 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/16.2MB of archives.
After unpacking 1839kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
Preconfiguring packages ...
dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/available' near line 8090
package `gtk2-engines-pixbuf':
 `Depends' field, reference to `libglib2.0-0': version contains ` '
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
* end *
