Error in last part of upgrading Gloria > Helena. Sound dead.

Postby jkw » Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:49 am

Sorry if this section isn't the place to post this, but I didn't find any better section for it.

Anyways, I've used LinuxMint 7 x64 'Gloria' for some time now on my desktop computer and it fits all my needs. Would just be fine if some more game companies made every game compatible with Linux, but hey, I got a Xbox360 if a really good game comes out. ;)

Anyway, I checked the blog here:

It worked fine until I was about to install mint-meta-x64.

Then I get the following error:

Code: Select all

kristian @ jupiter: ~ $ sudo apt install mint-meta-x64
[sudo] password for Christians:
Reading package lists ... Completed
Building dependency tree
Reading state information ... Completed
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 necessary packages have not yet been created or been moved
out of the "Incoming".
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have dependencies that can not be satisfied:
  mint-meta-x64: Addicted to: moonlight-plugin-mozilla but it will not be installed
E: Broken packages
kristian @ jupiter: ~ $

So I did a 'sudo apt install moonlight-plugin-mozilla' before trying again, and then it worked!

I just wanted to notify other people if they run into the same problem.

Translation made from so don't blame me if it's weird. :P

There's just one thing that doesn't work, as usual with linux in general, SOUND!

You need to state your sound card (or chipset if built into motherboard)
In all cases post

lspci -v | grep sound
lspci -v | grep audio

To narrow down list of sound hardware.

Its then a matter of finding out it theres a kernel driver and modprobing.
Finally you would make the change permanent by loading the module at
boot time.

Return to “Installation & Boot”
