UP4 dependency issues

Postby jan_goyvaerts on Fri Apr 06, 2012 3:39 am

Just writing to signal trouble for the update of UP4: There seems to be a dependency problem somewhere. :-)

Exactly same error here!

Although I could make the apt-get update complete, I have the same error with usbarbitrator. So there are many broken packages, some removed and waiting to install

I tried apt-get -f install, searched vmware in aptitude in order to delete it (no luck this time)...

Any clues?

Thanks in advance...

I guess we can't do anything else but wait for the dependencies to be fixed.

What is most annoying is that chrome doesn't work any more. It relies on libgconf. Which is missing now.

I hope the computer can still reboot safely... :?

I'm trying this solution

http://communities.vmware.com/thread/337769

Also find this thread, http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic ... et-errors/ deactivating services. But I cannot install rcconf now.

I'll post the results...

Re: UP4 dependency issues

Postby lmdeman on Fri Apr 06, 2012 8:39 am

AFAIK the vmware workstation 8.0.2 (player 4.0.2) installer borks the iniscripts system (version 7 (3) did not). I had similar problems trying to install a debian package which required to plug into the initscripts (can't remember which package). I solved by uninstalling vmware first, then completing the package installation. You may reinstall vmware when the system is fully updated. Note that vmware has its own installer so you will have to type something like:
Code: Select all
sudo vmware-installer --uninstall-product PRODUCT

Replace PRODUCT with your vmware product. You may list your products with:
Code: Select all
vmware-installer --list-products

Remember you will have to uninstall/reinstall vmware 8 each time you need to install/upgrade a package that requires initscripts, at least until they fix the installer bug.
I don't know which vmware product / version you have installed so the problem above may affect you or it may not.
The other problems are likely to be related to the server congestion, so i'd suggest to apt-get dist-upgrade only when the apt-get update completes succesfully.

Hope it helps.

Postby Paco on Fri Apr 06, 2012 9:58 am

well... I've tried the first solution I posted... seems to work but...

...I've lost emerald, compiz, mint-update, libreoffice (¿why?), gdm... buff!

apt-get update seems to work. Dist-upgrade says my system is up to date... So I think it's safer to remove vmware as you suggest.

Thanks!

I could make it work - sort of. :-)

1. Uninstall vmware player
Code: Select all
sudo vmware-installer -u vmware-player


2. Force install
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -f install


3. Regular update / upgrade
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade


4. Reboot

5. Reinstall VMWare player

I had to specify my default terminal program and file manager though. :-)

I've reinstalled all the apps, the only one that doesn't work is emerald (http://download.tuxfamily.org/shames/de ... /unstable/) and compiz gave me some problems, so I've deleted the two. Now I'm back with xfcwm4 and xfce composition for docky. It works nice...

that output looks exactly like i was expecting it to look (now), if some of the apps was removed during the upgrade there was a glitch in your upgrade path (but not so serious because you could fix it)

also i see here in this topic a couple references about
Code: Select all
apt upgrade
in my opinion a release like lmde should/has to be maintained with
Code: Select all
apt dist-upgrade

Isn't LMDE supposed to be a single release; a non-stop stream of updates ?

That's why I would expect update/upgrade to do the trick.

What would be the difference then ?

yes.

upgrade
Used to install the newest versions of all packages currently installed on the system from the sources enumerated in /etc/apt/sources.list(5). Packages currently installed with new versions available are retrieved and upgraded; under no circumstances are currently installed packages removed, nor are packages that are not already installed retrieved and installed. New versions of currently installed packages that cannot be upgraded without changing the install status of another package will be left at their current version. An update must be performed first so that apt-get knows that new versions of packages are available.

dist-upgrade
In addition to performing the function of upgrade, this option also intelligently handles changing dependencies with new versions of packages; apt-get has a "smart" conflict resolution system, and it will attempt to upgrade the most important packages at the expense of less important ones, if necessary.
The /etc/apt/sources.list(5) file contains a list of locations from
which to retrieve desired package files. See also apt_preferences(5) for a mechanism for over-riding the general settings for individual packages.

so basically, oversimplifying :lol: with upgrade you end up running in circles and loosing the train. only with dist-upgrade you can keep up with the pace.
