Unmet dependencies installing slimserver
« on: June 01, 2008, 01:51:02 pm »
I tried to install slimserver on my linuxmce server, but wasn't allowed to because of unmet dependencies for libnet-dns-perl, which required the security-updated version of perl (5.8.8-7ubuntu0.1) for feisty, rather than the release version (5.8.8-7build1). I had only the default repositories enabled in apt's sources.list (i.e. local deb-cache, feisty's release, security and updates, and linuxmce's repositories, neither of which seems to be available).

The only way I could get it to install the security updates for ubuntu was to comment out the local deb-cache folder in apt's sources.list. An apt-get update and upgrade then installed a whole host of updates (security and other) including the necessary version of perl. I could then install slimserver. Re-enabling the deb-cache repository then allowed me to install the slimserver-plugin for linuxmce and seemed also to downgrade slimserver from 6.3 to 6.2.2.

Is it safe to install the ubuntu updates like I have done, or will this break linuxmce? If the latter, how does one ensure that the linuxmce server is secure, and reconcile dependencies like this?

Which version of LMCE have you installed and how did you do it?  The 7.10 RC2(?) I have has Slimserver 6.5.4 installed by default. In 7.04 in installs 6.2.2. You do need to jump through some hoops to install a newer version in 7.04.

It was 0704, which might explain the problems. I received the DVD for 0710 in the post recently. Just tried to upgrade and it's screwed my FiireEngine (I'll post separately on that), so I guess this problem is on hold until then.
