apt-get errors
 
I installed Damn Small Linux (variant of Debian) and for some reason the make command is not installed. I am logged in as root when I do this. I try to run apt-get install make but I get this error:

apt-get install make
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
fileutils
The following NEW packages will be installed:
fileutils make

Then when I run apt-get dist-upgrade I get this error:

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Done all this I assume?


Cheers,

P.S.: Moved to the DSL Forum for better exposure.
