Gtkpod - configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool


Hey.

I am trying to install Gtkpod so I can use my iPod Nano 3G 4GB with Linux. I have run across a few problems, but the latest one is something to do with Parser perl. Here's the script:

Code:

Can anyone help me with this please?

Thanks

I think you need the package called 'libxml-parser-perl'
(Installed size 704kB)
Good luck!

Thanks, but this package is not found using apt-get or synaptic. Do you no where I can get it from?

Try again after doing 'apt-get update'
But if Xandros dosn't have it, the debian sarge or etch package might work.
It is here http://packages.debian.org/sarge/i38...-perl/download
or xandros-2 version http://xnv4.xandros.com/xs2.0/upkg-s...l-parser-perl/
Probably equal, all ver. 2.34

I added the repository to /etc/apt/sources.list and did 'apt-get update' I then did this:
Code:
eeepc-calebperr:/> apt-get install libxml-parser-perl
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:
  libperl5.8: Depends: perl-base (= 5.8.8-7etch1) but 5.8.8-7 is to be installed
  libxml-parser-perl: Depends: liburi-perl but it is not going to be installed
                      Depends: libwww-perl but it is not going to be installed
  perl: Depends: perl-base (= 5.8.8-7etch1) but 5.8.8-7 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
eeepc-calebperr:/> apt-get -f install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Correcting dependencies... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  perl-base
The following packages will be upgraded:
  perl-base

3 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/762kB of archives.

Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but this still hasn't fixed my problem. Whenever I try to install or update anything I get the same error. Please help me. Thanks.
