apt-get dist-upgrade problems


i tried to do a apt-get dist-upgrade and got some errors about gnome games..there are currently 225 packeages that weren't installed and i have tried both apt-get -f install, apt-get -f remove and apt-get -f dist-upgrade but nothing seems to work. i hope someone has an idea what i can do.....i can start icewm but gnome is looking for lib-gnome-perl or something like that

Post your /etc/apt/sources.list, it makes troubleshooting a whole lot easier. Are you trying to upgrade from Woody (stable) to Sarge (testing)?

i can't get to my sources list right now....but i was trying to upgrade from stable to unstable. I used libranet 2.7 as my install, which is more up to date than woody. but i just changed my sources from stable to unstable.

What is the exact error you are getting?

Is it a dependency error or is it a file exists in another package error?

I believe it is a dependency error, it keeps asking me if libgnome-perl is install then when i try to apt-get that it gives me dependency errors...I can't dist-upgrade to sarge nor sid without having this problem

Well I suggest you do not use libranet and then upgrade. I suggest you go for Woody, and then do a dist-upgrade. I did it that way without ANY problems at all :-)
