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: build-essential : Depends: libc6-dev but it is not going to be installed or libc-dev Depends: g++ (>= 4:4.4.3) but it is not going to be installed E: Broken packages
I tried installing libv8-dev from wheezy, running squeeze. The install went smooth, no extra dependencies required really. I created an
/etc/apt/apt.conf file specifying that stable was my default source. I then ran an
apt-get update followed by an
apt-get upgrade. Then I decided to install lua and saw lua5.2 using
apt-cache search. I installed, removed wheezy links from sources.list and uninstalled lua. The order might be incorrect because it seems my libc6 was updated and loads of packages uninstalled. Now I'm left with this message.
Is there a way of avoiding reinstalling everything? I seem to have gotten libc6 2.13-26 instead of 2.11.3-3.
loads of packagethat got installed I suspect the only think I can suggest is that you need to re0install.
aptitudewhere for example you can find broken packages using the
bkey and, if you have different packages sources in
/etc/apt/sources.list*, you can up/downgrade manually the packages using the package information view (enter key).
