Yesterday I installed Mint 4 or 5 (I thought it was 5, but the menu is still Daryna so I'm not sure) and upgraded to 6 using the upgrade tool
I found on the blog.
All of this went well.
When this was done, I started installing applications. VLC, Picasa, AIR+Twhirl, GnuCash, Amarok, and the basic GNOME game set installed without a problem, but gPodder, Gourmet, and Kipinä wouldn't install.
I tried both synaptic package manager, which gave me E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on libc6
on gPodder and Gourmet, and E: Couldn't configure pre-depend libc6 for findutils, probably a dependency cycle
on Kipinä, and package installer, which gave me installArchives() failed
and Could not install all dependencies
I'm not sure if it's related, but the changes to be applied seemed to be a rather long list. Earlier when using synaptic I didn't pay much attention to it since it generally went well, so it may just seem odd to me when it's actually normal, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. I added an odt file of it as an attachment.
Earlier, either during the installation from CD or during the upgrade, I got some notification involving libc6, but I paid no attention to it since it didn't seem to make a difference at that point.
Could this have something to do with the upgrade? If so, I could always just buy some blank CDs and reinstall. I've made very few changes so far, so it's best to do it now.
If not (or even if so), does anyone know of a way to fix this or have any suggestions for alternative applications? I could do without Kipinä and Gourmet but I would really miss gPodder.
