    Default What happened to BT???

    Hey everyone... I was a reg on the old forums a few years back... New nic. But Hello all! ....

    Ok, so I had to put bt down for a while and focus on life, but I just picked up a smoking ASUS (ROG) G60VS on CL for $600!! :-) ..... Until then I was running bt(4f) on my eee pc (1005HA) :-( lol


    Ok so Here's today's problem:
    Fresh install / apt-get update / apt-get upgrade ... and then I get an error about the kernel:

    root@bt:~# apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    linux-image: Depends: linux-image-2.6.34 but it is not installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.


    So far I reinstalled twice tonight, I was getting ready to start a 3rd, but it seems as though thats not helping. I may have used bt here and there and the past, but I've never really had a machine that could take full advantage of it until now (or at least I hope lol), and I'm light years away from being a nix guru, but I can surely use some guidance at this point. ThnxNadv


    -Also, I tried "apt-get dist-upgrade" .... seems like same problem.

    Blue above is the problem and red is the solution.
    Do try to read your errors a bit. You can even paste those in google for more info.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    That seemed to work, thanks

    It threw an error about a dependency backtrack-dragon

    apt-get install backtrack-dragon

    then i re-ran your string and worked fine.
