Calamares installation issue
« on: February 26, 2018, 04:34:01 pm »
Hi, I am on Sparkylinux rolling release version

Tried to install calamares but get following missing dependencies error

sudo apt-get install calamares -f
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... 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.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 calamares : Depends: libkpmcore6 (>= 3.2.1) but it is not installable
             Recommends: konsole but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Can it be fixed please?

Hi
The libkpmcore6 has been replaced with libkpmcore7 in Debian's tesitn repos.
Have to rebuild calamares.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

It is a release candidate, so not reason to build it yet.
Calamares 3.1.12~sparky5~2 just landed in sparky repos.
