    post-HD install: apt-get dist-upgrade problems

    I was able to get Knoppix installed on my HD - - it's a heavenly thing.

    I was then able to apt-get update/upgrade without problems.

    Then I apt-get dist-upgrade and KONSOLE crashes with a:

    "The application Konsole (konsole) crashed and caused the signal 11 (SIGSEGV)."

    What's weird is that my root account's desktop had a konsole opened when I had logged out -- this one starts up just fine. Click on the icon or type it into a command line (from, say, rxvt) and it fails.

    I'm really new to debian so I'm not sure if this is a KNOPPIX or DEBIAN issue. Any help is appreciated.

    I had the same problem, and can't fix it . I subsequently did an 'apt-get remove konsole' with the intent of reinstalling it, and that failed. I now must suffer with gnome-terminal (2.10), and greatly mourn the loss of my beloved konsole. If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can get it back, please post your ideas.

    post-HD install: apt-get problems!!

    first i got the following error with apt-get update:

    Reading Package Lists... Error!
    E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
    E: Error occured while processing mule2-wnn (NewPackage)
    E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    Could solve it by manually resizing the cache by adding the line

    Apt::Cache-Limit "8388604";

    to /etc/apt/apt.conf.

    Now the update of the pkg-database worked fine, so i tried a

    apt-get install xine-ui

    it looked good, until after the download of all the related packages libc6 was to be updated.
    An Error occured (something about a wrong dpkg, i can't remember) and now all efforts to install anything end with:

    root@proton:~# apt-get -f install
    Reading Package Lists... Done

    i'm quite new to debian (coming from rpm-based linux ;-/), so i would appreciate any suggestion!!
    thx

    I tried the same and got similar things.
    Just an apt-get upgrade works excellently.

    I tried a dist-upgrade after changing "testing" to "unstable" in /etc/apt/apt.conf. After changing of about 750 packages a had a working sid.
    I think it's also possible to downgrade to woody by changing "testing" to "stable", but I didn't try.

    Maybe for a pure dist-upgrade you have to to something in /etc/apt/sources.list.

    Konsole crashing after upgrades

    I didn't do a dist-upgrade, just did an apt-get update; apt-get upgrade with the stock sources.list and just recently my konsole has been left in a non-operable state.

    The error when you try to run konsole is:

    Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
    ...

    can anyone help?

    TIA
