I have Lenny in a multi-boot system on a HP Pavilion DV-1000 laptop, and yesterday when I logged in,
noticed the red (-) icon on the right of the top panel.
Mouse over it gave the message: "An error occurred, please run Package Manager from the right-click
menu to see what is ............". On doing so, Synaptic came up with "You have 3 broken packages on
your system! Use the "Broken" filter to locate them".
Selecting "Broken dependencies" resulted in the "base-files", base-passwd", and "dpkg" being listed.
All three had "Installed Version" the same as "Latest Version", but marked in red in the check boxes.
Did "Edit"->"Fix Broken Packages" which marked the packages green. Clicking "Apply" gave a summary
list: coreutils, gawk, gcc-4.3-base, libacl1, libattr1, libc6, libgcc1, libselinux1, libstdc++6, and izma
as the packages that needed to be installed.
Clicked "Apply" and got: "E: Internal Error, Could not perform immediate configuration (2) on libc6"
A Google search indicated several people had run into this problem, but I could not find one consistent
solution that seemed to address the problem completely.
Does anyone here have a solution (or a link to one) that will fix this?
Thanks in advance!
