Package Manager error

Postby Bandit224 on Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:38 pm

I'm using Linux Mint 7 and was downloading and installing a long list of packages for OpenGL and OpenAL through Synaptic.
Synaptic crashed on me while I was installing about 100 packages.
Using sudo dpkg --configure -a, didn't seem to solve the problem.

[Terminal code result below]
Setting up initramfs-tools (0.92bubuntu29) ...
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)

Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-13-generic
cpio: ./bin/udevinfo: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-13-generic
dpkg: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

dpkg -C to audit the system and give suggestions
--have a look in the dpkg options via --help or use man dpkg for a more complete description

Try fixing uninstalled/broken apps in synaptic or the terminal (commmand line)
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get install --fix-missing

Reboot the computer and use the previous kernel, then try again
--remember to use the reload button in synaptic to update the repositories list vs the installed system..
