first time poster - long time reader and learner.
Have been trying in vain for 2 weeks now to sort out a messed up PHP5.3 install on a Debian 5 (lenny) box. Each time I attempt to apt-get install php5-cli I receive a waterfall of unmet dependencies and I really have no idea on where to start or how to take the box back to scratch.
Here is my list of unmet dependencies:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Rlibc6 is already the newest version. 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. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: php5-cli: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.11) but 2.7-18lenny7 is to be installed Depends: libdb4.8 but it is not installable Depends: libgssapi-krb5-2 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2) but it is not installable Depends: libk5crypto3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2) but it is not installable Depends: libkrb5-3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2) but it is not installable Depends: libncurses5 (>= 5.7+20100313) but 5.7+20081213-1 is to be installed Depends: libonig2 (>= 5.2.0) but it is not installable Depends: libqdbm14 (>= 1.8.74) but it is not installable Depends: libreadline6 (>= 6.0) but it is not installable Depends: libxml2 (>= 2.7.4) but 2.6.32.dfsg-5+lenny3 is to be installed E: Broken packages
Here is my rudimentary apt/sources.list:
# # /etc/apt/sources.list # deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable all deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib deb http://packages.dotdeb.org/ stable all
Can someone please guide me in the right direction to sort out my php5.x install? (I do want -cli available as well - it's a Zabbix Monitoring server).
