Just started using Linux for the first time in January, after years of hearing members at my other forum that Linux was the way to go, i decided to have a look see. If i knew it was so easy to install i would have tried it a long time ago. I'd like to say thanks to the people that made this possible...

Re: Broken Packages

Hi guys, well it appears plan a & b didn't work, either did plans c d & e. I reinstalled Linux Mint 11 Katya because its a very good build at least it is in my opinion. This thing with broken packages doesn't make sense because it was a clean install not really had a chance to break anything, don't ...

Re: Broken Packages

Ah! Maybe this is the key?

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
E: Unable to correct dependencies "this was found in the Synaptic Package Manager window"

What are held packages and where might i find them.. :?

Re: Broken Packages

Well, I want to thank you I've been upgraded to the Nightly build 13.0 a1 which is fine with me I've done some beta testing in the past. This will give me a hand up where I might find a broken package fix for Firefox 10.. :wink:

Broken Packages

Re: DE vs Windows Manager: What's the diff?

Well my friend it has been my experience that in order to fully understand an application you must install it and go through the motions. I'm about to find out for myself what lies ahead, until two weeks ago i had no idea what Linux was or how to install it on my machine and that with no CD ROM beca...
