I have an Ubuntu server performing various important duties including serving music for Squeezebox. It was humming along with version 9.04 of Ubuntu and the latest Logitech Squeezeboxserver; but a new version of Ubuntu, 9.10 or Karmic Koala, was released today and I hastened to install it.
All went well – aside from a problem with Grub 2 which is related to my slightly unusual setup – except that Squeezebox Server failed after the upgrade completed. When I tried to use aptitude to correct the problem, I saw an error message:
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
squeezeboxserver: Depends: mysql-server-4.1 but it is not installable or
mysql-server-5.0 but it is not going to be installed
Frustrating, particularly as this thread indicates that squeezebox server runs fine with MySQL 5.1, which is installed.
I messed around trying to get apt-get to force the install but it would not play. I therefore downloaded the .deb directly and ran the following command:
dpkg –i –-force-all squeezeboxserver_7.4.1_all.deb
This tells dpkg to install the package come what may. It did so; and everything works fine.
Update: Andy Grundman tells me that the problem is fixed in Squeezebox Server 7.4.2, currently in beta.
