Debian :: X Dependencies In Sid ?

Aug 30, 2011

This is with my amd64 Sid box with a nvidia graphics card. X is broken and can not load after a dist-upgrade.

When I try to load one of the packages which were removed, I receive a dependency problem.

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

So I install xserver-org-core, but it's already there

I guess I wait until xorg-xserver-abi is added to xserver-xorg-core? Yeah, I should have waited on the dist-upgrade....

Debian :: Use The Repo For Chromium And Its Dependencies?

Jun 19, 2010

I usually install chromium from the frickelpatz repo. On one previous update I noticed that other packages that had not been installed from frickelpatz were updated with packages from there (i guess frickel had a higher version number - k3b i think the package was). So I would like to see what other packages it offers so I am aware of which packages are at risk. failing that is there a way to tell apt that i only want to use the repo for chromium and its dependencies?

Debian :: Download Packages And Dependencies

Jun 15, 2010

I'm hitting my head against the wall trying to figure out (and find any information on) how to download a package and all its dependencies.I've tried to clean the cache,$ sudo apt-get clean and then download a package and its depednencies,but it doesn't download dependencies that are already installed.I need to do this to install a package on a machine that doesn't see the net.I remember doing this somehow ages ago, and I think I might have even combined the package and its dependencies into a single self-contained .deb using dpkg.

Debian :: Get Full List Of Dependencies?

Nov 9, 2010

I have downloaded d4x download manager program but I do not know its dpendencies. I tried to install the single deb file with "Gdebi Package installer" but it showed an error of dependency. I downloaded that file too which itself could not be installed due to the same problem. The method of one by one file downloading was exhausting. Is there any program that accepts "d4x_2.5.7.1-5_amd64.deb" as input and givres me a full list of dependencies that must be saitisfied proior to installing the program with a single click? I want to give that list to a download manager.

Debian :: XFCE Installing Gnome Dependencies?

Apr 1, 2011

I installed Debian 6.0.1.a on Friday, but the problem is that installing xfce installed a few packages that have nothing to do with it, like Brasero and metacity. I'm using the xfwm but why were these extra packages installed? All I installed at the time were wicd, gdebi, xorg and xfce4. Everything is working fine...but why the extra bits?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Not Removing Dependencies?

Mar 25, 2011

I have had this problem repeatedly with aptitude recently. I run Debian Squeeze but in a somewhat unusual fashion - I create a custom live image using the builder on the Debian Live website and then run the live image in persistent mode off a flash drive. For all intents and purposes this has never behaved any differently from a standard Debian install and has given me a great deal of flexibility and power, for which I'm grateful.

However there's been one strange phenomenon that keeps occurring. After a certain point - not before - aptitude stops removing dependencies when I remove packages, though in the ncurses interface the option is shown as switched on (and my .aptitude/config file does not switch it off, nor does any other configuration file that I can find, though maybe I'm missing something). This occurs even in the case of dependencies which I know cannot be depended upon by any other package. e.g. the e17 package in unstable brings in libecore, libevas etc. which are depended on only by e17 as I have no other Enlightenment packages installed. But removing e17 removes only the e17 package and not the dependencies.

The other odd thing is that this does not occur at first. Aptitude works fine for a while on a clean system. At some point though it simply changes in behaviour.

Debian :: Obtain Build Dependencies That Are Not In Repositories?

Feb 28, 2010

Lets say that I want to compile a program that is in the unstable repository and I have testing (or also if I am using stable and want to compile something from testing), I know that I have to put the deb-src repository line of the repository from which I want to obtain the build dependencies by ussing apt-get build-dep packagename but my question is: what if it's not in the repositories at all? How does one go about obtaining these dependencies?

I don't know much about this topic but I know how to use dh-make with dh_make --createorig and I also know how to do dpkg-buildpackage but not more than that.

Debian :: Changing A Package's Dependencies After It's Installed

Aug 1, 2010

I did a compile and checkinstall of a Debian package (and then deleted the temporary directory tree I compiled in), and had to redo the compile and checkinstall since I screwed up on the dependencies (I think it's item #10) on the checkinstall "menu".

Looking for a quick and dirty shortcut, I was wondering where the post-install dependencies for the packages are stored. Is it in /var/lib/dpkg/status ?

If not, where is the dependency information for installed packages stored?

Software :: RubyGems Not Resolving Dependencies Under Debian

Feb 4, 2010

So I am trying to do a Ruby on Rails install on a Debian OS. It is proving most difficult. There isn't much help from Google since RubyGems is supposed to resolve dependencies for you, so you can just type "gem install rails" and it will install everything you need. But as it turns out, RubyGems doesn't want do. It keeps getting stuck on either the "rack" or "rake" dependencies saying it needs to either be installed or updated when it is there and has a new enough of a version. I even tried this as root and it didn't work.

Debian :: Dist-upgrade Broke Dependencies In Testing

Jun 23, 2015

I'm running debian testing on my laptop. This morning when I ran apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade, I was greeted by the following errors:

Code: Select all

Calculating upgrade... 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. The following information to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

 libcurl3-gnutls : Depends: librtmp1 (>= 2.4+20131018.git79459a2-3~) but it is not going to be installed
E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

A quick search found out that package librtmp1(2:2.4~20150315.gita107cef9b-dmo1) is already installed.

I do have some packages set on hold, however I don't think that's the problem:

Code: Select all$ dpkg --get-selections | grep hold
hostapd                         hold
libgcrypt11:amd64               hold

Debian :: Unable To Install Packages / Dependencies - Jessie

Oct 8, 2015

I have been using linux for about a year and have run into a new problem I am unable to solve. It started when I attempted to install some packages I needed to get VirtualBox to run VMs. I am on Jessie.

I am unable to install various packages, including gedit, aptitude etc. I do not think it is a problem with my sources.list as my laptop has the same sources.list and I am not encountering the same problems on it. Packages will not install any dependencies. -f install isn't doing anything for me.

My sources.list...

deb [arch=amd64,i386] jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src [arch=amd64,i386] jessie main contrib non-free

deb jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src jessie-updates main contrib non-free

[Code] ....

I tried to check for held packages with

userone@localhost:~$ dpkg --get-selections | grep hold

But get nothing.

sudo apt-get install -y

Debian :: Installing / Removing - Packages Have Unmet Dependencies

Jun 1, 2011

I have an issue with packages. When I try to install any package then I receive error like this one below.
e.g. install Lynx:

# apt-get -f install lynx
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libperl5.10: Depends: perl-base (= 5.10.0-19lenny3) but 5.10.0-19lenny2 is to be installed
libsnmp15: Depends: libsnmp-base (>= 5.4.1~dfsg-12) but it is not going to be installed
lynx: Depends: lynx-cur (>= 2.8.7dev9-2.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

So I decided to remove libperl5.10 which apparently mess. But its not that easy, just take a look:

# apt-get --purge remove libperl5.10
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libsnmp15: Depends: libsnmp-base (>= 5.4.1~dfsg-12) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libperl5.10 (>= 5.10.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
...and now I don't know what to do ?

Mar 24, 2011

I am running a video script on my server and I am very new to running a dedicated server and commands. Most of our site was setup but other and someone has broke something and no one seems to know how to fix.

Here is the issue. We run a script that uses these requirements

[Mod edit]Adult content Link removed


Now our server guy ran a update inside webmin for debian and now our videos still convert but wont make thumbs. Here is what he did.

Now updating libsmbclient ..

Now the AVS script wont make thumbs and webmin still wants to do 3 more updates that get unmet dependencies errors. Here they are when we try to run another update.

Building complete list of updates ..

Now what we need to do is either undo the update he already did or maybe get the one its asking for now to work but not sure which one will fix our thumb generating problem? Here is the error in the log file of the AVS script.

Debian :: Postscript Images - Openshot Not Working Due To Missing Dependencies

Mar 21, 2011

A day or two ago I saw a weird file in my downloads folder, and deleted it. I'm not sure why I deleted it rather than wondering why there was a weird file there, but anyway...another one has shown up.

name: datetime
type: PS document (application/postscript)

It's an image. The top part of the image shows what I was doing in a terminal last night. The bottom part shows a folder I was browsing in Nautilus. I believe the top and bottom parts are from different times. I'm a little weirded out, it's like something is taking screenshots of what I'm doing. Anyone happen to know what program created these or why?

Debian Multimedia :: Phoronix Test Suite GTK - Missing Dependencies

Sep 9, 2010

I downloaded the deb from the Phoronix site, installed it, and found out there were missing dependencies: php5-cli php5-gd.

These took up about 10.5 MB. Next I ran 'phoronix-test-suite list-tests', agreed to the license, then ran it with 'gui', and found out that I needed to load the 'PHP GTK' module. There is no Debian package ( at least no combination of gtk and php in description or name returned any results ), so I downloaded the source and read the instructions in INSTALL.

When running buildconf, it died due to 'phpize' not being found. This binary only comes with the php5-dev package, another 12 MB. After installing that package, buildconf dies with

Slackware :: Use RPM For Dependencies?

Nov 26, 2010

I am using,, sBOpkg, slackyeu and very good source is for browsing and finding packages.

But sometimes when I download and Install package (with slapt-get or installpkg tool) I dont have all dependencies to run my software. Slapt-get can solve dependencies only if the are locate in repository.

Than, I start to find dependencies manually on high writed sites, but usually I cant find it. (Off course, only some packages).

Easy way is go to [url] and I can find 99% all of dependencies to my packages in rpm format and for various architectures.

I use rpm2tgz and just convert rpm to tgz and Install package as normal. 95% packages installed this way is working.

Where do you find dependencies you? Or, is anybody using rpm for solving dependencies too?
