    Default BT "Personal Wiki" ???

    Hia guys

    Iv got BT4 installed on my harddrive and have been looking for a personal wiki to install so i can keep track of what im doing but the only problem is that when i try to install basket im getting unmet dependencies errors like this

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install basket
    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.
    
    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:
    
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      basket: Depends: kontact (>= 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    so i tried

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install kontact
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done

               Depends: kdelibs5 (>= 4:4.1.96) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: kdepimlibs5 (>= 4:4.2.2) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: korganizer but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libkdepim4 (= 4:4.2.2-0ubuntu1~intrepid1) but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: libkholidays4 (= 4:4.2.2-0ubuntu1~intrepid1) but it is not going to be installed
               Recommends: kmail but it is not going to be installed
               Recommends: knotes but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    Does anyone know of another compatable peronal wiki or how i can fix this?

    I didnt want to start messing around with the dependencies and screwing up other apps.

    Did you try installing all of the dependencies and then basket?
    If this is not a viable option then you might have to do it the old fashion way and use kate or nano.

    Can you tell me what the kate or nano way that you mentioned or point me to a tutorial for it please?

    You could also take a look here for more personal wiki's
    Personal wiki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    There may be a better/ more supported one.

    Thanks archangel ill have a look at those, i tried to build the source but using

    sudo apt-get build-dep basket

    would'nt install the build deps either so i think ill give up on basket for the time being and look for another in that link just to make life a bit less complicated

    Thanks for your help, much appreciated

    This personal wiki actually looks fairly interesting.
    I may try and see if I can get basket or another one working. I will post back here if I get anything working.
    You can also check out dradis (included in bt4) which is a collabarative means of sharing information. It is specifically geared for pentest information/note sharing however.

    didiwiki is in the repo, you can get it through apt-get.

    i opened a terminal after installing and typed didiwiki but it couldnt connect to the port so i gave it a random port then went to localhost:YourRandomPort in firefox and its up and running.

    Iv never used the personal wikis myself but it just seemed like a good idea to keep track of what i was doing rather than having loads of txt files scattered around lol

    Edit your posts using the Edit button located at the bottom right hand side of said post.

    Glad to see that you got something working.
    I (and probably many others) just use a .txt file for notes. Kind of old skool I guess.
