LMDE 64-Bit Error Messages

Postby kwisher on Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:44 am

Hello All,

I hope someone can provide some insight into what all these error messages I am receiving when doing an apt-get dist-upgrade. This is fresh install on a raid-5 server I built for a customer about 18 months ago. The primary O/S hard drive was starting to fail. I originally installed Mint-7 64-bit on the system when I built it.

Dependency issues might have to do with the fact that the repos changed since the LMDE-64 dvd was released (something about sid/testing). I couldn't update after a fresh install on a friends laptop. If you try mint-update, do you get a error saying "fix broken packages first"?
If that's the case, search for exactly that "*" on this forum and you'll find ways to update the repositories addresses (I can't find the exact post anymore).
I don't fully understand any of this but hope it might help you.

edit: and since you mention "customer" it might be better/trouble-free to install the standard mint 10.

Since this is a headless home file server, I wanted to move to a rolling release to avoid the distro "dying" after it stopped receiving support and updates. I ended up installing Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit Server on it and it is now back up and running.

Ikey, can you please advise on this issue?
