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:
  madwifi-source: Depends: debhelper (>= 5.0.0) but 4.2.32 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
Ok use apt-cache policy debhelper then the version number you see for anything 5.0.0 or higher use with the apt-get install debhelper=1.2.5-56 you can put both packages on the command line to have them install at the same time.

Your link to download this gives me the following:

           => `madwifi-modules-2.6.16-2-686_0.svnr1644.0.9.0-1bpo1_i386.deb'
Resolving user.eastlink.ca... failed: Host not found.

Madwifi gave me this:

Warning, /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.16-2 seems to contain unconfigured

Installation of the madwifi-source source failed.
Ignoring this package. Maybe you need to add something to sources.list,
maybe the contrib and non-free archives.

.
Updated infos about 1 packages
Is this the error you where talking about? What do I do from here?

Nope that is telling you the debhelper is not at the version required use apt-get install debhelper=5.0.34bpo1 then try the m-a again, I just checked the notes I took during install and that is the version that was installed.

I don't know if anyone is still subscribed to this thread, but I'm still getting that same "unconfigured kernel source" warning when I start module assistant. Can anyone please explain to me how to fix this as I want to use module-assistant to build a module for ALSA with my 2.6 kernel. Thanks.

You still have the kernel headers for your running kernel and are they linked properly (m-a prepare)? BTW what module do you need to build?

Hey HappyTux. I did some digging and found out that that version of Module Assistant had bugs. So I upgraded it and now it works fine. I need to build a ALSA module. I have another thread on that located at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...46#post2435546

Hi again. If you don't mind, would you go to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...46#post2435546 and see if you can figure out something there? It sounds like you have a big Linux brain on you!
