Xandros Networks


I am using Xandros and under the Xandros Networks section when I try to install a package is get this:

"limewire-free_4.8.1-1_i386.deb generated
run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
Done."

Any idea how I fix that? If you are nice enough to answer PLEASE PLEASE make the description easy to follow as I am still stumbling my way through Linux. Thx!

Open a terminal window and type: dpkg --configure -a

I'm not sure if you need to be root in order to run this command, if yes then just type: su <press enter> <input root password> <press enter> now type: dpkg --configure -a. When the task is complete type exit to return to normal user mode.
