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?

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?

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.

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....

I am trying "aptitude update && aptitude upgrade"

Quote:
6 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 128 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 12.0MB of archives. After unpacking 169MB will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]
should I continue?

Thanks

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...

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

Quote:
6 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 128 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 12.0MB of archives. After unpacking 169MB will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] n
what will the pinning do if I don't have anything but sarge sources?
