Debian instalation help!

Postby confused.brit » Wed Dec 26, 2012 7:18 pm

I have a fresh install of Linux Mint Debian Edition, which is based on Debian Sid.

I followed the instructions in the stickied guide for Debian 64bit here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13046.

I had to change the url being wget from happy neko's launchpad to 1.54.00 as 1.53.99 was giving 404 errors.

apart from that, no issues until i tried to dpkg v1.54.00 ....

No flac no ia32-libs, no upstart-job.

Fair enough, I think, apt-get install em...

NOPE.

upstart : Depends: libnih-dbus1 (>= 1.0.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libnih1 (>= 1.0.0) but it is not going to be installed
Conflicts: sysvinit but 2.88dsf-34 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

I know sysvinit is vital to the running of my system, as it provides the services or something like that, so I don't want to go forcing it to be replaced and risk monkeying up my system.

Can anyone offer an alternative,or am I looking for a new media server?

You'll have to settle for an older version of ps3 media server.

The quickest and easiest way I got it working for Debian Unstable is installing the following debs:

https://launchpad.net/~happy-neko/+arch ... _amd64.deb
http://launchpadlibrarian.net/81489648/ ... um_all.deb

After you dpkg -i these packages, follow with an apt-get install -f.

Good luck.

Thanks nxmehta, i'd almost given up hope in getting this working.

Rygel is ok but it doesnt transcode, so that odd video thats in mkv really messes up everything.
