I need phpize to install an Oracle Instant Client, and so I tried to install php5-dev and received this message
sudo apt-get install -f php5-dev

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:
php5-dev: Depends: libssl-dev but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libtool but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken package
It should be noted that I'm running this on Linode.com so it uses a specialized xen kernel. But this package shouldn't be a problem as people on the linode forums were installing this package w/o problems. I also already tried to fix the "broken package" with synaptic but it seems to have done nothing. Thanks in advance.
