    moved to another thread

    this is using xandros2, a deb distro.
    first i
    $apt-get update
    then i
    $apt-get upgrade, and then:
    ===================================
    blackbox:~# apt-get install mozilla-firefox
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    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:
    mozilla-firefox: Depends: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.4.1) but 1.2.4-1 is to be installed
    Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4) but 2.3.2-7 is to be installed
    Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:3.3.2-1) but 1:3.3.2-0pre5 is to be installed
    Depends: libstdc++5 (>= 1:3.3.2-1) but 1:3.3.2-0pre5 is to be installed
    Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1) but 1:1.1.4-15 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    ==========================================
    any suggestions what is should try next?

    What does /etc/apt/sources.list look like?

    Re:cant apt-get firefox

    Try doing "apt-get dist-upgrade" first, not only "upgrade".

    The difference is that "apt-get upgrade" will ONLY upgrade whatever packages you have currently installed. Only "dist-upgrade" will update your current system to up to the level including some development packages.

    Then try installing it again.

    Might also want to try an "apt-get update" first.

    Re:cant apt-get firefox

    You always MUST do "apt-get update" first no matter what you are doing; either install, upgrade or dist-upgrade. Otherwise, you will have old copies of packages info. If you don't update your package database, there is no point in doing upgrade.

    Re:cant apt-get firefox

    cant even cut and paste from xterminal to a text editor
    which is why i didnt answer about my sources.list.
    ==========
    anyway, in the meantime, i just downloaded firefox from mozilla.org
    and then i did this
    $mkdir firefox
    $cd firefox
    $cp /path/firefox* ./firefox
    $tar -xzvf firefox*.tar.gz
    $cd firefox-installer
    $./firefox-installer
    =============================
    but here was the error i got:
    ./firefox-installer-bin: error while loading shared libraries:
    libstdc++.so.5:
    cannot open shared object file:
    no such fiile or directory

    [/quote] copy: highlight what you want copied (this will copy the text automatically)
    paste: click the middle mouse button (or both the left and right mouse buttons at the same time) in the window you want to paste the text to

    Anyway, I still think you need to do an "apt-get update" (just type it in if you can't figure out how to copy and paste.)
