Webmin - Unmet dependencies


Hi everybody, first of all..sorry for my bad english

When attempting to install the required libraries for Webmin, I get this error:

debian-gabriel:~#apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl libnet-ssleay-perl libauthen-pam-perl libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl libmd5-perl
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... 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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libauthen-pam-perl: Depends: perlapi-5.8.7
Depends: perl (>= 5.8.7-7) but it is not going to be installed
libio-pty-perl: Depends: perl (>= 5.8.8-6.1) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: perlapi-5.8.8
libmd5-perl: Depends: perl (>= 5.8.0-10) but it is not going to be installed
libnet-ssleay-perl: Depends: perlapi-5.8.7
Depends: perl (>= 5.8.7-10) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Can somebody give me some help here please?

Welcome to LQ.

Please tell which OS, you are using. Debian Sarge ?
Or an old Ubuntu version ?

And show the output of the command
( cat /etc/debian_version )
cat /etc/issue

.....

Sorry, just wondered, why you were asked for
some (very) old versions of perl ( 5.8.7...)

This is a clean install of Debian 5 :
Code:
debian:/home/knudfl# apt-get install libnet-ssleay-perl libnet-ssleay-perl libauthen-pam-perl libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl libmd5-perl 
Reading in package lists .. Finished
Building dependency tree        
Reading .... ... Finished
New packages to be installed :
  libauthen-pam-perl libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl libnet-ssleay-perl
0 upgrade, 4 new install, 0 to remove and 71 not been upgraded.
0B/285kB to be fetched from archives.
After this operation, 1253kB of additional disk space will be used.
..  continue .. [Y/n]?
.. And I was asked for the install DVD, and got all 4 from the DVD.
( Debian 5.0 final april 2009.)
.....

Your /etc/apt/sources.list should look something like
Code:
deb http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib
deb http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny-proposed-updates non-free contrib main
deb-src http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny-proposed-updates non-free contrib main
deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib

I guess, the 'etch' lines are causing your troubles.
.. And I can't see any 'etch' options in "Synaptic" > >
Properties > Archives > "Software Sources" , don't know
where you got it from.

Suggest : hide away your file in a backup directory or
uncomment all lines with a hashmark ( # ) like :
# deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib

... and just use my lines instead for a start.
The preferred "Download from" can be changed in > >
"Software Sources" , if you wish.

You have etch sources and a lenny install, and one line pointing at lenny (the 'stable' one). Change all mentions of etch to lenny, apt-get update, try again.

Solved! it seems that I wrongly manipulate the sources.list file, now it looks this way

debian-gabriel:/tmp# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
#
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.2a _Lenny_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20090817-16:43]/ lenny main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.2a _Lenny_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20090817-16:43]/ lenny main

deb http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
deb-src http://ftp.dk.debian.org/debian/ lenny main

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main
deb-src http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main

I tried again apt-get update and issue solved..thanks a lot everibody =)
