I have broken Felicia

Postby EmyrB on Tue Nov 11, 2008 12:04 pm

Hi All,

I'm a Mint newbie (this is my first Mint install ever) and I was playing around with it after I had installed it onto my PC. I decided to try out synaptic to install some extra software which I have on my Ubuntu 8.10 install, namely Amarok, VLC, Gramps, Scribus, Blue Fish and F-Spot. Everything went well until it came to doc-base 0.8.16. Synaptics bombed at that point so I tried to run dpkg --configure -a and this is what I get: -

Code: Select all
Setting up doc-base (0.8.16) ...
Bareword found where operator expected at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/auto/Storable/autosplit.ix line 2, near ""http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-mime-info" type"
   (Missing operator before type?)
Bareword found where operator expected at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/auto/Storable/autosplit.ix line 4, near "<comment>Amiga"
   (Missing operator before Amiga?)

Bus error
dpkg: error processing doc-base (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 135
dpkg: ../../src/packages.c:221: process_queue: Assertion `dependtry <= 4' failed.
Aborted


Now I cannot run Synaptics or do and apt-get anything as it gives me this error: -

Code: Select all
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.


Help?

Cheers

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi magnus0,

I have done that already, hence the big code block at the start of my post :)

Cheers
