Mozilla suite under breezy

Asked by dave58 on 2005-10-16

I happen to prefer the old Mozilla browser, mail and irc clients.
But when I attempt to install them I get:

===

ltub1:~$ sudo apt-get install mozilla
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... 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:
  mozilla: Depends: mozilla-browser (= 2:1.7.12-0ubuntu05.04) but 2:1.7.12-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
           Depends: mozilla-mailnews (= 2:1.7.12-0ubuntu05.04) but it is not going to be installed
           Depends: mozilla-psm (= 2:1.7.12-0ubuntu05.04) but 2:1.7.12-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

===

Per the apt notes, I opened Bug ID 3250, but is there any work-around available to me?

thanx,

Tried installing each package separately?

I searched under Bugs and I found two different bug reports that describe your problem: 657, 3250.

It seems that a FireFox security update broke some parts of the Mozilla suite.

I found the problem.

It seems that the base package, or the one that I had after a hoary install followed by a network dist-upgrade to breezy, doesn't contain an /etc/apt/sources.list repository entry for "breezy-updates universe"

After manually adding this element, the mozilla install was sucessful.

My sources.list now reads:

 deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted universe
 deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted universe
 deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted universe
