On Debian Sarge I just did an aptitude install kmymoney2 and it seems to have installed perfectly...

Are you using Sarge like it says on the left? Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list?

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 08:31 AM

Yes I am using Sarge and have tried all kinds and combonations of sources.

Thanks,

Hey, I read this exact same question somewhere else.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=446074

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 09:51 AM

Yeah, Sorry about that. I figured I should have posted here first.

I just read a little on makeing the deb packages I wander if I find the packages that has a problem and take our the depends of those that are not letting it install would it work?

I don't know if I want to try that or not.

pljvaldez 05-19-2006 11:15 AM

Can you type from a console aptitude install -s kmymoney2 > ~/kmymoney.txt then post the contents of the text file here? This command simulates and install and will give us an idea of exactly what dependency is missing and maybe we can help you a little better.

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 11:22 AM

I will do that tonight,

thanks

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 07:31 PM

I did the "aptitude install -s kmymoney2 > ~/kmymoney.txt"
got this

Try aptitude update && aptitude upgrade. It sounds like some of your other packages/libraries may be partially installed or broken. If the upgrade fails, try using aptitude -f upgrade or aptitude -f dist-upgrade (make sure your sources.list is pointed at Sarge if you're going to do the dist-upgrade thing....

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 08:29 PM

I am trying "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade"

pljvaldez 05-19-2006 09:12 PM

I would say no. First post your /etc/apt/sources.list because it seems like you might have too many different versions of repositories (i.e. a mixture of stable, testing and unstable). Stable NEVER would remove that many packages with a simple upgrade...

Torquewrench 05-19-2006 09:17 PM

this is what I have right now most of this is just trying to get the kmymoney to work.

Try getting rid of the multiple entries . Have you installed any packages from the other repos, especially from Etch or Sid?

Something simple like this is better.
#Stable Sarge
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
#Stable Sarge Sources
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
#Security Updates Stable
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

You might try editing /etc/apt/preferences
and setting up pinning.
A simple preferences file may look like this:

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 650

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 600

I tried the example apt sources above and got the same thing

what will the pinning do if I don't have anything but sarge sources?

Torquewrench 05-21-2006 03:19 PM

Going to try the .bz2 file, see if that works
