    [SOLVED] Re: Failed to download repository information

    I found a website that generates a default sources.list depending on the release. That will be good for now.

    [SOLVED] Can't install VLC in 11.10

    Ubuntu says I have unmet dependancies but I can't seem to fix them. I tried the Fix Broken Packages in Synaptic and I tried "sudo apt-get install -f" but still nothing.

    Anyone know why?

    Thanx.
