    Question Wine and Debian Lenny


    Hi,

    I'm trying to install wine since a couple days on my Debian Lenny box, however
    everytime I apt-get it, it gives me a few warnings / errors, and won't install it, due to unmet dependencies.

    Using both, the debian repository and the winehq depository, doesn't change anything, also when trying from etch through to experimental.

    is there any available version or so for Lenny, without any unmet dependencies errors?

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies.
    wine: Depends: wine-bin (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: wine-utils (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-alsa (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed or
    libwine-oss (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed or
    libwine-esd (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed or
    libwine-jack (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed or
    libwine-nas (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-gl (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-print (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-sane (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-cms (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-gphoto2 (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-ldap (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libwine-capi (= 0.9.44-1) but it is not going to be installed
    Recommends: msttcorefonts but it is not installable
    E: Broken packages
    Says that it might be due to an unstable distro, hence wondering if there's a version out there working with Lenny.

    when trying to apt-get each package, I get more and more unment dependencies

    Hi,

    the exact list I can copy later, once I am at home.

    it contains the
    etch
    lenny
    sid
    experimental
    wine

    update, main, contrib, non-free
    repositories,

    whereas everything apart from Lenny is commented out.
    tried through all, however won't work with whichever dist or with wine rep.

    Check if /etc/apt/preferences file exits in your machine. Post its contents here.

    Execute this
    Code:
    cat /etc/debian_version
    cat /etc/apt/preferences
