    Default cannot install dhcp3-server on BT 5R3-64 bit

    I have BT 5R3-64bit (Gnome) installed on a 32GB flash drive on my laptop (i3/8GB RAM). I've been trying to get dhcp3-server installed so I can get an AP going, but nothing I do seems to be able to get it installed.

    This is the error I get with a simple apt-get install dhcp3-server:
    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:
    dhcp3-server: Depends: dhcp3-common (= 3.1.3-2ubuntu3.2) but 3.1.3-2ubuntu3.3 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages

    I've installed Synaptic to try to force it to install, but it still refuses.

    I've added the following to sources.list

    deb http://updates.repository.backtrack-linux.org main microverse non-free testing

    then ran apt-get update followed with apt-get upgrade with the same error being reported.

    Any thoughts on how to get this installed?

    Check all your repos links..And why would you upgrade?..I do not understand that..Do you know what are you doing?

    Do not upgrade, just: aptitude install dhcp3-server

    Luck.

    Why? Because I ran into this error on a clean install of 5R3 and tried a number of things that came up in google searches to correct it, all of which I posted.

    I see, but you could have upgraded only dependencies, then install dhcp3-server..

    Is your problem solved?...

    aptitude install dhcp3-server

    This worked. Yes, thanks. I'm not a Debian/Ubuntu fan by any stretch and use mostly RPM based distros (usually CentOS or Suse, Mandrake/Mandriva in the past), so I only knew to use apt-get for everything.
