when i try this command : apt-get -y install phpmyadmin

i get this 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. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: phpmyadmin : Depends: ttf-dejavu-core but it is not going to be installed Recommends: apache2 or lighttpd but it is not going to be installed or httpd


It seems that you need to install other packages before you go ahead with your phpmyadmin install.

First install Apache server then afterwards try installing phpmyadmin.
