Setting up gtkboard (0.11pre0-3) ...


Quote:
Preconfiguring packages ...
Selecting previously deselected package firestarter.
(Reading database ... 66802 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking firestarter (from .../firestarter_1.0.1-1ubuntu2_i386.deb) ...
Setting up gtkboard (0.11pre0-3) ...
error in control file: `Format' value not specified at /usr/sbin/install-docs li ne 715, <IN> line 17.
dpkg: error processing gtkboard (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 9
Setting up firestarter (1.0.1-1ubuntu2) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
gtkboard
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
i don't know what gtkboard has to do with dkgb and firestarter, i just removed gtkboard package and firestarter was fine.

1. Is there a question in there somewhere?
2. Please stick your distro in your user cp.

OK neat - there is a "reason for edit" box just before you hit "save" - it helps avoid this kind of confusion sometimes.

"user cp": look at the top of this page just under the row of Tux's ... you'll see a menue bar in blue. On the far right of that bar you'll see a thing which says "user cp". This is where your profile is kept.

You'll notice that experienced users (>100 posts) all have their details in the sidebar of their posts (see left). The "user cp" dialogs is where you set this up.

Adding your distro and some sort of general location can help people answer your questions. Honest.

"error code 1" I think is a standard "exit with error". It's no good out of context.

By minutely examining your post, you are doing a dpkg install of "firestarter" for Ubuntu. So I guess you're distro must be Ubuntu right?

Did you do this through "apt get" or "dpkg -i"?

Have a look at this:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=171107

And read the man pages for dpkg and apt get carefully.

[Post Edit]
Your confusion is reasonable tho - firestarter (you mean the firewall right?) has nothing to do with gtkboard (a common platform for board games)! This is obviously a bug and should be reported.
