maharaja,

Parted and Udisk required the "new" package libparted0, install it from command line with:

   $ sudo apt-get install libparted0

I'm not sure what the issue with libdb4.7 is...

Good luck,
George

Raoul Bhatia (raoul-bhatia) said : #2

actually, they require "libparted0debian1", which is installed.

see http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/parted
see http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/udisks

so?

thanks,
raoul

Did you try running "sudo apt-get install libparted0"?

By the way, "sudo apt-get upgrade", or in your case the show with -u, will NOT install new packages.

Good luck,
George
