I'm on 64-bit Xubuntu 14.10. Nvidia graphics with the proprietary drivers, if that matters. I just ran
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, so I should be up to date. My CPU architecture is x86_64.
I'm trying to install PlayOnLinux. I added the PPA
http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu and just ran
apt-get install playonlinux. Didn't work. I got this output:
peter@HandOfGod:~$ sudo apt-get install playonlinux Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... 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. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: playonlinux : Depends: wine or wine-unstable but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
apt-get -f install playonlinux has no effect. The output is as above.
Next I tried
apt-get -o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes install playonlinux. This gave me a huge wall of text too long to post here. It was basically a bunch of
broken x depends on y. It repeatedly mentioned i386 packages, which is strange because my machine is 64-bit.
apt-cache policy playonlinux gives this:
500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ utopic/multiverse amd64 Packages
I tried to install using synaptic to see what it says.
Not good. It wants to remove about a billion packages, many completely unrelated to Wine.
