    Default problems with synaptic

    Hi there.I have a little problem with instaling programs with synaptic package manager.
    This it's after i was trying to install xplico 0.5.4 version(deb package).After this try ,now i can't open synaptic package manager anymore.It give me this error:


    "The package xplico needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it."


    I was searching on internet and i found some solutions.But none of them work.(dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq xplico) and others of this kind.

    I don't want to reinstall backtrack again.


    Please help. Thanks

    Goodness the sources were released like 5 days ago. It might not even be in the repos yet.
    What actual error message did you get.
    Anyrate why not just download it and compile it from source?

    Man ,i have download the package from here :

    sourceforge.net/projects/xplico/files/Xplico%20versions/version%200.5.4/xplico_0.5.4_i386.deb/download

    and then i dpkg -i xplico_0.5.4_i386.deb.






    dpkg --remove --force-depends --force-remove-reinstreq xplico
    dpkg - warning, overriding problem because --force enabled:
    Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
    reinstall it before attempting a removal.
    (Reading database ... 249849 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing xplico ...
    invoke-rc.d: unknown initscript, /etc/init.d/xplico not found.
    dpkg: error processing xplico (--remove):
    subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 100
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    xplico



    I have managed to open my synaptic manager.
    Deleted some files :
    "xplico.list, xplico.md5sums, xplico.postinst , xplico.postrm"

    Thanks for your time and hope this help anyone who try to install the xplico 0.5.4 deb package.

    OK so obviously it is not working out. My suggestion would be for you to get the sources located at the same place
    # wget sourceforge.net/projects/xplico/files/Xplico%20versions/version%200.5.4/xplico_0.5.4_i386.tgz /tmp
    Then
    # cd /tmp
    #tar xvf xplico*
    # cd xplico*
    # nano INSTALL and make sure you meet all of the prerequisites.
    The .deb is built on ubuntu 9.10 so there are probably going to be some unmet dependencies. I would make sure you have what the INSTALL calls for, specifically GEO-IP-1.4.5
