Dependecy gaps between udev 0.074 and linux-image 2.6.12
During an upgrade of my machine I have run across a three-way dependency gap between udev 0.074, linux-image 2.6.12 and hotplug 20040329-25.
I performed a dist-upgrade to move up to the latest distro and saw the udev refused to install because it claimed that it needed a hotplug later than 20040329-17. So after manually installing it, I ran apt-get -f install udev to force the udev package to install, only for it to fail with the message:
udev requires a kernel >= 2.6.12, aborting.
Therefore I went and installed linux-image-2.6.12-1-686 and reran udev, only for it to fail again with the message that it needed hotplug! So after reinstalling hotplug and running apt-get -f install udev once more, it once again refuses to install!
Can anyone help me figure out how to simultaneously get udev, hotplug and linux-image all happy so that I can finish the dist-upgrade command (of which there are 100MB of packages spooled in /var, waiting to be installed)?
