View Full Version : How can I get a package file from Knoppix distribution

01-09-2003, 01:42 PM
Recently I installed Knoppix on my HDD without any problems. I am new in Debian systems and don't know very vell all features of apt-get, dpkg and dselect. Because of that I upgraded my package libgdk-pixbuf2-0.18 with a new one (from Debian unstable), but unfortunately there are dependencies which is not solved. So, how can I get my old package from default Knoppix instalation (There is no libgdk-pixbuf2-0.18 in Debian releases).

Try this:

apt-get update

apt-get -t unstable libgdk-pixbuf2

What this does is load libgdk-pixbuf2 and its dependencies from the unstable branch of debian. Hopefully it will fix your problem.

To answer the actual question asked by alex to start this thread: If you have unresolved dependencies, the package won't have fully installed. All you need to do is run "apt-get -f install" as root (with no packages specified). It should offer to remove the package you attempted to install which had unmet dependencies.
