an incompatible Debian repo hosed my system.

Postby Verlager on Fri Feb 15, 2008 1:45 am

I could have simply compressed my mpg video clips to 20% of their original size using using winff, a gui front end for ffmpeg. But instead I bought a 1 TB HD.

Then I added a questionable repo to /etc/apt/sources.list:

## Debian multimedia
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ stable main


and did a Synaptic reload and upgrade

Code: Select all
rmack@recruit:~$ sudo apt-get install libfaad2-0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  libevent-execflow-perl libintl-perl libswscalecvs0 dvdauthor
  libpostproccvs51 libevent-rpc-perl ogmtools gtk2-ex-formfactory-perl vamps
  libswscale1d anyevent-perl libmozjs0d libevent-perl libavutilcvs49 libimlib2
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  dvdrip ffmpeg libavcodeccvs51 libavformatcvs51 libfaad0 winff
The following NEW packages will be installed:

Abort.

Pretty scary, huh? And it had just previously deleted my avidemux! So I tried to re-install avidemux:

Code: Select all
rmack@recruit:~$ sudo apt-get install avidemux
[sudo] password for rmack:

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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  avidemux: Depends: libfaad2-0 (>= 2.0.0+cvs20040908+mp4v2+bmp) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
rmack@recruit:~$



Now what do I do? It's a catch-22. Can't install avidemux without trashing a lot of other files. I guess I have to reinstall.

This is strange at least if you only have the info you give in the code boxes.
There the install of libfaad2-0 was aborted
but perhaps something happened when
just previously deleted my avidemux!

Try to run
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --configure -a

then install libfaad2-0 and after that continue with avidemux
You can of course use Synaptic
edit>fix broken packages
If this does not help try
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -f

I think there's a good chance that this will fix it

OK, let's try it!

I see this twice and it seems to be a not uncommon problem
It beats me what's happened and perhaps a fresh install is needed.
No big deal if you've got home on a separate partition but still some work to do...
