apt-get -f install is failing

Postby Eric Marsh » 2006-02-24 04:47

Somehow my dependencies seem to have become damaged. I've tried apt-get -f install and am getting the output below. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to how I can get back on track?

If you have to run "apt-get -f install", it usually means that there is a problem with your sources. Please, write your sources.list here, as well as what you tried to do before you had to run apt-get -f install.

One last thing.
You have cross-posted this question here and to "Installation". I removed the other one, but please, don't post your question twice. If you didn't get an answer in, say, a day, it doesn't necessarily means they you won't have an answer at all. What it DO mean, however, that posting the same question again will yield no additional results.
