[SOLVED] problem with package managers
I am using knoppix 6.2 on my Acer 5738 Laptop.
I am facing the following problem:
With synaptic package manager, once I selected large no. of new applications to be installed and it got hanged. Thereafter it synaptic does not start and gives following error message.
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room. Please increase the size of APT::Cache-Limit. Current value: 25165824. (man 5 apt.conf)
E: Error occurred while processing gnome-power-manager (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
apt-get install also gives the same error. Kpackage and gdebi are also giving similar error. Thus non of the package manager is able to do its job due to this error.
Please tell me a wayout as I am not able to install or remove any application.
With kind regards
