re-installing synaptic


Hi All,

I'm a linux newbie but had managed to get synaptic running after installing it with atrpm-kickstart. All was well until I tried to upgrade to latest version of synaptic, there seemed to be a conflict between versions. I uninstalled synaptic but now when I try to reinstall with atrpm-kickstart all goes well until I try to apt-get install synaptic

then I get a conflict error with atrpm_13-16 (which was supposed to be uninstalled!)

Are there any FAQ's for apt, synaptic (or yum?) I've had a good 'trawl' but can't find much advice.

All assistance gratefully received!

Tom

google apt4rpm and look at the debian docs, the commands are, for the most part the same.

Hi All,
Thanks for the replies,
Tried again and managed to re-install apt with atrpms-kickstart, everything appeared to go OK until I tried
apt-get install synaptic

Does anyone have any ideas?

hmmm. Well the error is pretty straight forward. you need apt (greater than or equal to ) 0.5.4.

try this:
$apt-get update
$apt-get upgrade
and see if will upgrade your version of apt.
and where did you get your apt rpm?
