    Crunchbang: trouble installing packages


    Using Crunchbang Waldorf 64 bit

    I have tried to install programs and seem to have trouble with virtual programs. Can anyone tell me what is wrong?

    Tried to install gxine:
    Code:
    root@crunchbang:~# aptitude install gxine
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      gxine libfame-0.9-1{a} libmozjs185-1.0{a} libxine2{a} libxine2-bin{a} libxine2-ffmpeg{a} libxine2-gnome{a} 
      libxine2-misc-plugins{ab} libxine2-plugins{a} libxine2-x{a} 
    0 packages upgraded, 10 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
    Need to get 5,204 kB of archives. After unpacking 12.1 MB will be used.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     libxine2-misc-plugins : Depends: libcdio10 which is a virtual package.
                             Depends: libiso9660-7 which is a virtual package.
    The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
    
         Keep the following packages at their current version:
    1)     gxine [Not Installed]                              
    2)     libxine2 [Not Installed]   root@crunchbang:~# aptitude install gxine
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      gxine libfame-0.9-1{a} libmozjs185-1.0{a} libxine2{a} libxine2-bin{a} libxine2-ffmpeg{a} libxine2-gnome{a}

    4)     libxine2-plugins [Not Installed]                   
    
    
    
    Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]                        
    3)     libxine2-misc-plugins [Not Installed]              
    4)     libxine2-plugins [Not Installed]
    I also tried with apt-get:
    Code:
    root@crunchbang:~# apt-get -f install gxine
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
     gxine : Depends: libxine2 (>= 1.2.0) but it is not going to be installed

    You've updated the pkg list (as root), yes?
    Code:
    # apt-get update
    If you've updated and it still doesn't pull in libxine2, post the contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.list.

    I did the update and upgrade and it didn't resolve the problem. Here is the sources.list

    Code:
    root@crunchbang:~# cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    ## CRUNCHBANG

    deb http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main

    When using aptitude and you get to the "Accept this solution?" prompt, type N. It should then spit out some other stuff, and ask you if you want to unhold the held package, type Y at the "Accept this solution" prompt.

    Your sources.list file seems fine but there's still a problem. For some reason, your pkg mgr wants to pull in versions from Squeeze, Debian's old stable, not from Wheezy, the current Stable. Eg: Squeeze uses libcdio10, Wheezy uses libcdio13. I'd check the Debian Multimedia in your sources.list file to see if it follows Squeeze and if it does, update it to Wheezy. Another option is replacing it with this Debian Multimedia:
    Code:
    deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org wheezy main non-free

    Forgot to add... whenever you change a repo source in sources.list, as root:
    Code:
    # apt-get clean && apt-get update

    Thanks fanderal
    I changed the multimedia site. The other one had a directory for squeeze and wheezy, so don't know if that helped.
    I did aptitude clean && aptitude update and then aptitude safe-upgrade. It must have fixed things. I was able to install gxine after that without problems.

    You're welcome and glad ya got it working. For future reference, Crunchbang uses a few of its own pkgs but it's completely compatible with Debian... very appropriate to post in the Debian forum.
