Title: [SOLVED] Problem with initramfs dependincies
Post by: vilde on 2016/03/07, 21:55:58
stuck on this on d-u today,
Code: [Select]
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:
 initramfs-tools-core : Breaks: initramfs-tools (< 0.121~) but 0.120+nmu1 is installed
apt-get -f install doesn't solve it but I can'tget the output in english to work so I can't show it here

Hello vilde,

did you put initramfs-tools on hold?

Both packages should be version 0.123,
but 0.120+nmu1 is an older fix from siduction extra repo.

Please check with "apt-mark showhold".

Greetings

Yes when I got this problem it reminded me that it had been hold back on d-u before. I did unhold it but the problem is there now anyway.

I also had other (don't know if they are related) issues on the d-u today and had to do a fchk on my root harddisk to be able to continue, maybe something happened then also?

apt-mark showhold - remove any holds, if there are any - really, you should only use holds if you're absolutely sure that you know what you do. And be absolutely sure you can handle the results.

apt install initramfs-tools initramfs-tools-core

There was a problem for some time ago when it was advised to pot initramfs on hold, probably I did that, I have seen that it was hold back on my d-u:s, I thought it was apt who kept it back. Anyhow, I tried the suggested install but I get stuck on the same problem (I think) -f doesn't help either.

What does that mentioned file look like on your system? Here it's one line containing "interest update-initramfs" and a second (empty) newline.

@der-bud Yes, that file was a mess, I did something that maybe is stupid but I tok that file from another installation and copied it over the corrupt one and the I did what melmarker suggested

"apt install initramfs-tools initramfs-tools-core"

and that solved the problem, now I could do a real d-u.

BUT, I got some more messages that there where some files wrong
Code: [Select]
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.22-1) ...
ldconfig: /usr/lib/libvorbisidec.so.1 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libvorbisidec.so.1.0.3 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libvcdinfo.so.0.2.0 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

ldconfig: /usr/lib/libvcdinfo.so.0 is not an ELF file - it has the wrong magic bytes at the start.

As I wrote before I had to repair the root file system so maybe/probably some more files are corrupted, anyhow the computer seems to work as it shall for the moment.

I will now mark this thread as solved

I did copy the rest of the faulty files from another installation.

All this was probably my fault, two things:

1 forgot that I put an application on hold,

2 Dont laugh to much ;)
I was running this computer with a test ms-os on another hd, switched of the computer a pulled out the hd, pulled in my ordinary hd with siduction on and then I noticed that the computer was still running, probably some changes on the hd was done and therefore I had to run fsck with a lot of corrections needed. I was surprised that siduction started. Anyway this is a non important multimedia computer running my tv, no important files, and if more problems occur then I do a clean installation.
