Problems with apt-get install libcupsys2-dev


When I try to install libcupsys2-dev I get this message :-

apt-get install libcupsys2-dev

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... 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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libcupsys2-dev: Depends: libgnutls11-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
root@0[~]#

This is on mephis but I guess that it should be the same fix in Debian

It is a temporary problem in the TESTING repositories. You could try re-installing in a couple of days. Otherwise, you can download the package from: http://packages.debian.org/testing/l...libcupsys2-dev and force the installation to ignore dependencies:
Code:
dpkg -i --force-depends libcupsys2-dev_1.1.23-7_i386.deb
However, that may cause it to not function correctly since libgnutls11-dev will not be installed.

A better solution is to install from UNSTABLE:
Code:
apt-get -t unstable install libcupsys2-dev
To install from unstable, make sure you have Debian unstable repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list, then run "apt-get update" before installing.

Thanks, I will wait a couple of days and try again (the bad news is that I need this for my printer).

If you need to install it, you can grab libgnutls11-dev from the archives: http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2...in/g/gnutls11/ Install it with dpkg, then run apt-get install libcupsys2-dev and it should work.
