I'm struggling with Ubuntu for almost 3 months now. And it never fails to drive me crazy. I'm using Ubuntu for compiling Android kernels for beaglebone black. I installed Ubuntu into a separate physical harddrive. After I finished my work with it, I disconnected that harddrive and didn't use it until today. This morning I reconnect my Ubuntu harddrive and tried to boot Ubuntu. And suprise suprise. It didn't boot up. Since I didn't care the files in harddrive, I formated it and installed a brand new Ubuntu.
Now I am following the exact steps I did before for kernel compiling. I need several packages to install for compiling an Android kernel. One of them is "libglapi-mesa" . I am using following shell command to install it:
apt-get install libglapi-mesa
But it acts differently and doesn't install the package. Here is the response of shell:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Note, selecting 'libglapi-mesa-lts-saucy' instead of 'libglapi-mesa' libglapi-mesa-lts-saucy is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded
I've used the same Ubuntu 12.04.4 setup. And in the past it was installing the package I want, now it doesn't install it. It says "selecting 'libglapi-mesa-lts-saucy'" and "libglapi-mesa-lts-saucy is already the newest version." but I don't want these packages because when I try to run
sudo apt-get install git-core gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \ zip curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev \ libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \ libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 openjdk-6-jdk tofrodos \ python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386 \ minicom tftpd uboot-mkimage expect libgl1-mesa-dri
It fails, because it needs 'libglapi-mesa' .
