cannot install vlc through synaptic
I have been trying to install vlc media player through synaptic and it tells me on changes needed to do so.(such as upgrades and other files needed.) But it says that they are uninstallable. I am using mepis linux 8 on an acer aspire 4730z. Does anyone know how to work around this? Is anyone else having similar problems? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. And thanks in advance.
