    12.10 software update - broken packages

    When trying to perform a software update I get the following message :

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:

    libgl1-mesa-dri:i386: Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1) but 1:4.7.2-2ubuntu1 is installed

    I have switched off all software sources apart from Canonical and Community maintained sources.

    I have read a few threads which might be relevant but which refer to Steam. I have not installed Steam.

    Can anyone help ?.

    billio; Hi !

    try this from terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -f
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    which will try and resolve the dependency issue finally with the "dist-upgrade' to use it's smart mode to do so.
    hope this helps

    billio;

    That output is indicative of a graver underlying problem (all graphics driver related). Are you having display problems ?

    just try'n to help

    This guthub exchange describes my problem, though I haven't installed Steam, but it doesn't give a solution

    Re: 12.10 software update - broken packages

    Have a look at this thread. Instead of (re)moving the conflicting files, you can just try
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --path-exclude=/usr/share/doc/\*/changelog.Debian.gz -i /var/cache/apt/archives/libdrm-*.deb
    Speaking more generally, your problem seems to stem from combining 64-bit and 32-bit packages. I presume you're running an amd64 architecture, but have some i386 applications that pull 32-bit libraries. If I am right and you actually are on a 64-bit architecture then please post the output of
    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections|grep :i386

    Re: 12.10 software update - broken packages

    @ billio and schragge ;
    I am somewhat floundering at this time. Can not get it into my mind how/why the package manager is hollering about overwriting a documentation file. I am torn as to how to proceed.
    Maybe look and see if those files even exist or the directory that should hold them ?
    a) can we not just (re)move the "changelog.Debian.gz"(s) file and attempt to (re-)install ?
    b) apt-get install down through the directory tree to further define the dependencies ?

    again I am in a learning condition
