apt-get install samba-common
 
hi,

I'm running a debian stable server with kernel 2.6.8-2-386.
however when I try to install samba-common apt gives me this output:

subversion:~# apt-get install samba-common
Reading Package Lists... Done

These 2 lines concern me a lot:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
initrd-tools kernel-image-2.6.8-2-386

apt is going to remove the kernel-image??
it's the only kernel-image on the system so if apt is going to remove it, the system will be completely f*cked up!

what can I do now?

Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list? The "674 not upgraded" looks like you're running mixed sources.

If you tried it, it would probably fail to remove the kernel saying something like "Can't remove a running kernel" or the like. But from here it looks like you have some other problem going on that's making this a headache...

you were right pljvaldez.

my sources.lst contained both unstable and stable repos...
thx for your help :)
