w32codecs dependencie


i can't get w32codecs to install,

Quote:
debian:/home/lyle# apt-get install w32codecs
Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
w32codecs: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4-1) but 2.3.6.ds1-7 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
debian:/home/lyle# apt-get install libc6
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
libc6 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
debian:/home/lyle#
not sure what to do here. if i use the apt-get --force-depends, that will probally just give me problems. can anyone steer me in the right direction.

You have a line in your sources.list that is using packages built against a newer libc6 than you have installed. From the looks of it your using sid so put this in your sources.list and apt-get update then try the install again you will probably want to remove/comment out the other line.

Code:
## Various Multimedia Helper Apps Mplayer, Real, w32codecs, etc.. ##
deb http://debian-multimedia.org sid main
BTW it is better to use the code option when including information in a post using quote it disappears when you try to reply which makes referring to it a pain.

apt-get install debian-archive-keyring then gpg --keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-archive-keyring.gpg --export --armour 1F41B907 | apt-key add - then update again all as root of course.

Edit: I see you found it while I was posting I will leave the solution for those who may be searching. Your Welcome BTW.
