Synaptic can't find libavahi

Asked by JohnL on 2007-01-13

Synaptic can't install ANJUTA because it uses various libavahi files and synaptic can't find them.

It MAY be simply that avahi has a new site (since 5/1/2007) and synaptic is looking in the wrong place.

Of course, it could be something else entirely - I just want to know how to get the libavahi libraries required to install anjuta.

I already have all repositories enabled. Its just that the avahi debs
aren't there - see error message below
W: Failed to fetch
  404 Not Found

W: Failed to fetch
  404 Not Found

404 is "site not found", so it would appear that synaptic repositories
need to be updated for avahi's change of address.

That is, its not that I need help, someone needs to tell whoever
maintains synaptic.

The problem appears to be with Synaptic. I have checked and the repository contains libavi-client3_0.6.13-2ubuntu2.4_i386.deb instead of the dependency version ...2.3_i396 required by anjuta

In Synaptic, if you click "Reload" first, it should download the current list of available software. After that, try your install again, and it should download the correct versions.

Can you help with this problem?
