I created a minimal install on my Raspbian Raspberry Pi running Debian Jessie. Among other things, I removed
libx11-.* and dependencies, which included removal of
policykit-1. I'm trying to reinstall
policykit-1, but hit the following errors.
$ sudo apt-get install policykit-1 ... The following packages will be REMOVED: sysvinit-core ... dpkg: sysvinit-core: dependency problems, but removing anyway as you requested: sysvinit depends on sysvinit-core | upstart | systemd-sysv; however: Package sysvinit-core is to be removed. Package upstart is not installed. Package systemd-sysv is not installed.
After this, booting now hangs, and I have to restore the SD card to an image before this install command. (N.B. booting worked fine before the creation of the minimal install, and after the removal of
libx11-.* and dependencies.) How can I reinstall
This worked for a little while, but no longer.
Running the following command allowed me to reboot the computer, although I'm unsure as to how functional
sudo apt-get install systemd-shim policykit-1
However, a recent update to Debian Jessie prevents this from working.
policykit-1 was uninstalled after
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, and running this command still asks you to uninstall
