Cant install Iceweasel(SOLVED)

Postby gabo on Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:54 am

When i try to install Iceweasel i get the following error:

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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
iceweasel: Depends: xulrunner-9.0 (>= 9.0.1-1~bpo60+1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Any help? I really want to go th "Debian" way :D

deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main non-free

I used SID and it installed OK. you may want to add it to you sources.list then comment it out after installing iceweasel

It worked! thanks, now if I use the SID repo do I have to erase this one? "deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free"
