Description

Trying to install on Debian I get:

yoda:/home/stratos# apt-get install trac Reading Package Lists… Done Building Dependency Tree… Done 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:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:

trac: Depends: python-clearsilver (≥ 0.9.3) but it is not going to be installed

Depends: python-sqlite (≥ 0.4.3) but it is not going to be installed

E: Sorry, broken packages

When I "apt-get install python-clearsilver" I get:

….Same as above plus…. Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:

python-clearsilver: Depends: python (< 2.2) but 2.3.4-1 is to be installed

E: Sorry, broken packages

I already have done a "apt-get install python" to the latest version and apt-get tells me I have the latest version…

I know I am doing something wrong, but what is it…?

Thanks

stratos: you probably have debian testing. At least on my testing system similar results are produced. Perhaps there should be a project to create a trac .deb for more modern debian distributions?

comment:2 by stratos, 15 years ago

So, there is NO way to install Trac on my Debian System…? Too bad, from what I saw, on this site, it looks pretty cool and it's something that would have helped me…

BTW, how do I know what exactly flavor of Debian I run…?

Should we perhaps start building packages for testing and stable as well?

On my debian server I had a similar problem:

I wanted to upgrade to python2.2 but there was no python2.2-subversion available Then i decided to Upgrade to python2.3, but then i had no python2.3-clearsilver. So i had to downgrade to python2.1 with python2.1-subversion and python2.1-clearsilver-packages So i have to wait for one of these packages coming up and then i'll give it a try again.

I had the same problem:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  trac: Depends: python-clearsilver (>= 0.9.3) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Is this a Trac problem or a clearsilver problem?

Can you please try the last version 0.8-1 included today (12/21/2004) on Sid?

This currently seems to work. In the future I think that these issues should be reported on Debian's bug tracking system.

Interesting the dates on these…2 yrs old? Anyhow, I'm having the same problems and same python-clearsilver dependancy errors. I don't understand otavio's suggestion to try 0.8-1. Anyone have some more info they can share with me?

Replying to justin.kramp@gmail.com:

I don't understand otavio's suggestion to try 0.8-1.

What don't you understand? That was the latest version at the time, so he suggested upgrading since the OP was using 0.7.

Anyone have some more info they can share with me?

Please check on the MailingList for support. If you've mixed packages from different Debian repositories you may have gotten conflicting versions. If this is a problem with a clean Debian setup you should report the bug in Debian's system so they can fix the packaging.
