I have installed a Knoppix3.6 (the hardware recognition was great) and then I installed in HD.
I am trying to update packages und recompile kernel so I can test some experimental software that need for example the latest version of autoconf and automake..
I am not an expert at all ... but I was reading for a long time the online manuals, and so on....
I wrote my source.list with entries for stable un testing..
and I did also
I was trying with
Then I did
root@ksat77:/etc/apt# apt-get upgrade Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done You might want to run apt-get -f install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: frozen-bubble: Depends: frozen-bubble-data (= 1.0.0-6) but 1.0.0-4 is installed testdisk: Depends: libntfs5 (>= 1.9.2) but it is not installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f. root@ksat77:/etc/apt#
root@ksat77:/etc/apt# apt-get -f install Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done Correcting dependencies... failed. The following packages have unmet dependencies: frozen-bubble: Depends: frozen-bubble-data (= 1.0.0-6) but 1.0.0-4 is installed testdisk: Depends: libntfs5 (>= 1.9.2) but it is not installed E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages. E: Unable to correct dependencies root@ksat77:/etc/apt#
I also don't know if the problem could come from the installation from Knoppix (based,but not debian..) Or if it is just a package that I have to uninstall....
This is my /etc/apt/apt.conf
APT::Default-Release "testing"; APT::Cache-Limit 10000000; Apt::Get::Purge;
Any suggestion it will be very appreciate!
Thank you in advance!

it is because it is not debian, but knoppix. Although, it may not be impossible, I have a feeling, that if you try to fix something that is broken, you will end up breaking something else.
any reason why you can't install debian?

First of all, Thank you for answering!
I started with knoppix because for the first time it has a easier detection of hardware...I tried it and everything was recognized for the first time...so I didn't try with a "pure debian",that at the beginnin is harder to configure...
It is clear for me that upgrade and other things maybe are not so good idea with knoppix..
PS: I had already done a lot of searchs before posting...but later I have found an answer in another specific forum.
I will copy the link just in case somebody come here with the same problem I have had.For me was helffull

you still may try debian, in most cases you will be fine. the only problem I had was a video card issue, but it wasn't to hard to fix. Also, you can many times use knoppix as a "guide" to making debian work correctly

If you are having hardware problems installing Debian, make sure you use the 2.4 kernel instead of the default 2.2.
Have a look at the install help options on boot up screen, I think you need to type bf24 or similar to start with 2.4 kernel. This will help a lot with later hardware.
