Unresolvable Dependences

I have just done a fresh install of 64studio. I'm a KDE person so I installed kdebase. I tried to install adept as my package manager and I can't. I am told that adept depends on other packages which in turn have "unresolvable dependencies". When I track this through it seems that libapt-pkg-libc6.3-6-3.11 is the package that can't be installed. The thing that I don't get yet is that, when I was running Debian Etch this wasn't a problem, and I still have deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free enabled in my /etc/apt/sources.list file. If that was enough to satisfy the dependencies before, why won't it do it now?

http://packages.debian.org/en/etch/libapt-pkg-libc6.3-6-3.11 Maybe you need to use apt from the Etch repository. There's also one in the repository for 64 Studio that might be the wrong version. Disable all repositories, but Etch and reinstall apt.

Thanks Ralph

I just prefer it as I've got good with it. >Maybe you need to use apt from the Etch repository.

I imagine that if installing apt & adept from Debian worked it would break dependencies in 64studio. Regards, Rob

Virtual package

The package seems to be in /usr/lib/, provided by the package apt, but I'm also not able to install adept to my 64 Studio 64bit upgraded to Lenny. I don't know adept. Is there the need to have it? Try to search the net for virtual packages, resp. check out how to use update-alternatives. Sorry, I have no experiences with Debian, so I can't help, but there seems to be the need to use a command like update-alternatives. Cheers, Ralf

That's it...

To keep some of the audio packages fresh, Free had to do some backports. Please enable the 64studo etch-backports repository as well.

I already have this line in /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://apt.64studio.com/backports etch-backports main Is that what you mean and have I got the syntax right?
