Squid install dependencies

Asked by tim-o on 2009-03-09


I've just installed ubuntu 8.10 server edition and i'm now trying to install squid.But when i run the following command to install squid i receive an error message stating that " squid3 depends on squid3-common ( = 3.0.STABLE8-3)". I assume some dependancies are missing ? But what "squid3 common" ?
I'm pretty new to configuring linux apps. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I can't run apt-get as no interent connection has been configured as of yet..

/media/cdrom# dpkg -i squid3_3.0.STABLE8-3_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 18234 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace squid3 3.0.STABLE8-3 ( using squid3_3.0.STABLE8-3_i386.deb)
Unpacking replacement squid3....
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of squid3:
squid3 depends on squid3-common ( = 3.0.STABLE8-3); however:
Package squid3-common is not installed.
dpkg: error processing squid3 (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Processing triggers for man-db ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

Any pointers or direction would be greatly appreciated...

Please type:

sudo apt-get update

if the system ask you a password give your user password, you will not see nothing when you type it, then press enter, then type:

sudo apt-get --fix-missing upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install squid

Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply. But as the server hasn't been configured on a internet connection yet i couldn't run apt-get.

But i did download and install the squid3_common_3.0.STABLE8-3.deb and then re ran
#dpkg -i squid3_3.0.STABLE8-3_i386.deb

which installed fine. Now just need to configure interfaces and .conf.

Thanks for your reply.
