I was trying to install some DNS software on my Debian Sarge 3.1 box through SSH so I could set my server up as a nameserver and then bring a domain name to it.
I was following a tutorial elsewhere but have managed to 'break' apt-get. Whenever I try and apt-get anything now I get the following message :
DEB05:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
linux-image-2.6.15-1-486: Depends: initramfs-tools but it is not installable or
yaird but it is not installable or
module-init-tools: Depends: lsb-base (>= 3.0-6) but 2.0-7 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
If I type apt-get -f install
I get told that I'm trying to remove the running kernel which I don't want to do.
How can I unmark the packages so they don't try and update or whatever I need to do so I can use apt-get again ?
Also, if anyone can point me in the right direction of a tutorial to setup my server (numeric IP address) so it runs nameserver software and I can then use a domain name on it, that would be much appreciated.
