Trying to run FlightGear 2.6 from PlayDeb on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bits, I get this error every time :

fgfs: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: svn_subr_version

Thanks for help.

To solve my problem :

  • I removed the PlayDeb repository :
    sudo add-apt-repository -r "deb precise-getdeb games".
  • Then, I updated the sources :
    sudo apt-get update.
  • Then I removed all fgfs files :
    sudo apt-get remove flightgear fgfs*.
  • Then I reinstalled FlightGear 2.4 :
    sudo apt-get install flightgear.
  • Then I added the PlayDeb repository again :
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb precise-getdeb games".
  • And finally, I upgraded :
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
