View Full Version : [ubuntu] Perl problem - GCstar Installation

December 28th, 2008, 06:46 PM
Hi all,

I was trying to install GCstar 1.4.3 from a DEB file I got from GetDeb. When I double click on it it says

error: Cannot install 'libarchive-tar-perl'

When I try to install libarchive-tar-perl via apt it says this

Reading package lists... Done

Some packages could not be installed. 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.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libarchive-tar-perl: Depends: perl (>= 5.6.0-16) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libio-zlib-perl
E: Broken packages

I am able to install GCstar 1.3 from the repos just fine using apt. I am using Intrepid Ibex. Any suggesstions?
