can't solve unmet dependencies problems
I tried to install inkscape which required some library packages I didn't have and it needed to update some others. I started installing using kpackage and there were conflicts between old & new library packages. I was going to try tackle them one at a time but I get a whole mess of dependency problems and kpackage won't let me do one at a time. For instance the version of efax-gtk I have installed needs libsigc++-2.0-0 and the newer version requires libsigc++-2.0-0c2 which is what inkscape requires but I tried to update efax and I tried to uninstall libsigc++-2.0-0 and kpackage just spits the dependency errors at me. It suggests run apt-get -f install but that wants to then remove 55 packages including gimp and firefox - more dependency problems I expect. I even tried to uninstall inkscape but that won't go through either. If I had high-speed internet I wouldn't mind uninstalling older versions and re-installing newer versions to fix things up but I am on dial-up. Updating packages one at a time isn't working. I am running Mepis 3.3.1 Does anyone have a suggestion for how I can start to sort this out? Thanks.
