Re: can`t install flash [solved]

Post output of:

apt-cache policy flashplayer-mozilla

Have you also removed the former

flashplugin-nonfree

Also have you done prior to that a dist-upgrade?

Re: can`t install flash [solved]

^ updating cache didn`t solve it,apt-get install -f didn`t either,I`ll try doing a dist-upgrade,
another question,should I disable multimedia repo or pin it down before dist-upgrade?

Re: can`t install flash [solved]

But you need deb-multimedia for the Flash thing to install at all anyway.

Try to update and then upgrade, we'll see. And of course then try to install it again.

Re: can`t install flash [solved]

^ It is not an old package. It is the recent version from deb-multimedia. Compare the version numbers:

11.2.202.236

with that from Adobe's site for Linux.

Re: can`t install flash [solved]

Went for dist-upgrade,
apt-listbugs give me this :

Parsing Found/Fixed information... Done
critical bugs of mdadm (3.2.4-1 -> 3.2.5-1) <unfixed>
 #678262 - mdadm: fails to honour INITRDSTART='none' in /etc/default/mdadm
grave bugs of libslang2 (2.2.4-10 -> 2.2.4-13) <unfixed>
 #675125 - libslang2: jed fails to start with latest libslang2 (2.2.4-12)
serious bugs of base-files (6.9 -> 6.11) <unfixed>
 #678106 - base-files: dummy bug, please ignore
Summary:
 mdadm(1 bug), base-files(1 bug), libslang2(1 bug)

Should I put them on hold?are they serious-especially base-files-?

Re: can`t install flash [solved]

@m5:

The first bug is not affecting you if you not use this package (mdadm), are you sure you need it, I do not have it installed.
The second bug is similar, do you use jed? Me not, I guess you neither. Again no problem. Jed is an editor for programmers and is not installed on my system.
About base-files, should not affect you because you have already a running system. It just affects new installs with the older initscripts.
