    How do I resolve this problem with apt-get


    I was trying to install bootsplash and bootsplash themes. Something went wrong in the process and when I execute apt-get fixup it will not fix it. I also tried to just uninstall it also but it says

    Code:
    Removing bootsplash-theme-newlinux ...
    dpkg: error processing bootsplash-theme-newlinux (--purge):
     subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 10
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     bootsplash-theme-newlinux
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    RESULT=100
    So what does this mean and how do I fix it?

    Be more specific,
    what command are you trying?
    what is the content of your /etc/apt/sources.list?
    etc?

    I'm using debian stable. I havent used the command line just Kpackage Manager.
    here is etc/apt/sources.list:

    # deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

    deb http://debian.oregonstate.edu/debian/ stable main
    deb-src http://debian.oregonstate.edu/debian/ stable main

    deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
    # deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

    deb http://www.bootsplash.de/files/debian/ unstable main

    # proposed additions for a 3.1 point release
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ proposed-updates main contrib non-free


    In Kpackage Manager their is a fixup command which didn't fix the problem so I tried to uninstall and I still get this error message, plus no bootsplash. I would love to have the bootsplash for eye candy.

    Why not install:
    Code:
    apt-get install kernel-patch-debianlogo
    from stable?
