    Hi All
    I tried to install DNS on my Ubuntu Machine. It i Ubuntu 6.06. I followed the link http://howtoforge.com/linux_bind9_and_caching_nameserver


    when i do apt-get install bind* it is giving the following error :



    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:
    bind9: Conflicts: bind but 1:8.4.6-1 is to be installed
    giflib-bin: Conflicts: giflib-bin
    Conflicts: libungif-bin
    libadabindx-dev: Depends: xlibs-static-pic but it is not installable
    libbind-dev: Conflicts: bind-dev but 1:8.4.6-1 is to be installed
    libungif-bin: Conflicts: giflib-bin
    mew-beta-bin: Conflicts: mew-bin but 1:4.2-1 is to be installed
    mew-bin: Conflicts: mew-beta-bin but 4.2.52-1 is to be installed
    E: Broken packages


    What could be wrong with my installation ? Please do help
    Looking forward to hear from you

    Thanks and Regards

    Please run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    and try again. If that doesn't help - what's in your /etc/apt/sources.list?

    Maybe the dapper-backports repos are the problem. Please comment them out, run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    and try again.
