Question tzdata and libc6 conflict


today i switched from fedora to debian, which i have found great. i was added a few depends and looked for ntfs-3g, wasn't there in any of them. this surprised me alot, since every linux distro i knew of came with it. i mounted my ntfs drive with mount -t ntfs /dev... /.... and it worked, except i noticed it was read-only, which i thought would happen. i dl the ntfs-3g .deb package from the site, tried to install, but i needed libc6 it said. i got that file too, and tried to install it, now it tells me it conflicts with tzdata.
i looked it up on line, i found a few other people with the same problem. It said i most likely mixed stable-testing- and unstable packages together.

Code:
 cat /etc/debian_version
4.0

 cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r2 _Etch_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080103-00:44]/ etch contrib main

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r2 _Etch_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080103-00:44]/ etch contrib main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
# deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ sarge main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
at one point i had two other depens added, both were stable and unofficial.
i also had deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ sarge main enabled for a while.

thanks - ct

Comment out the line for the CDROM then update and try again..

Definitely do not enable to line for Sarge.. that's oldstable. Just get rid of that line all together.

Code:
 cat /etc/apt/sources.list

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r2 _Etch_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080103-00:44]/ etch contrib main
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r2 _Etch_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20080103-00:44]/ etch contrib main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
aptitude update
aptitude keep-all
aptitude upgrade
aptitude install libc6


use aptitude for all your package installation and removal needs, dependencies will be handled automatically.. there are very few packages you should have to download and install manually using dpkg..

ntfs-3g is available in testing, and should be in the next stable release of Debian
