What about installing libstlport4.6c2 by hand? downloading the .deb file
and using dpkg -i? of course, I will have to care about dependences by
hand too. Does this make sense?
That is possible, but it will be a lot of work to download all the
dependencies (and the dependencies of the dependencies, etc.) yourself.
I use synaptic for installing packages. Yesterday, when I ran synaptic,
it complained about a dependence problem, asking to use "Fix broken
packages" before installing anything. After that, the problem with the
installation of openoffice begun. May be both things are related? I
I would like to know how long the Packages file for http.us.debian.org
is on your system. Please post the output of:
ls -lh /var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_stable_main_binary-amd64_Packages
Also, you can check if this file lists the libstlport4.6c2 package:
Maybe there is a problem with the Packages file on your computer and it
does not get corrected because apt(itude) only downloads the index file
diffs by default. You can force a new download of the whole Packages
file with this:
aptitude -o Acquire::PDiffs=false update
(This will download several MB, so it might take a while depending on
your network connection.)
If all else fails, try another mirror.
Well, in sources.list I changed the repository
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free
by this one
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main non-free contrib
Everything is going ok now! In fact I am installing openoffice.org 2.4
from backports now!
Obviously, there is a problem with the http://http.us.debian.org
repository, for amd64 at last...
Thank you very much for all your support!
