Hi ,

I just did a fresh install of VL7 gold and when trying to install Thunderbird I get the following error:

Code:
root:# slapt-get --install thunderbird
Reading Package Lists...Done
Excluding thunderbird, use --ignore-dep to override
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  gnome-vfs: Depends: gconf >= 2.26.0
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
  thunderbird
0 upgraded, 0 reinstalled, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, 1 not upgraded.

When I look in gslapt I have version 2.32 of gconf om my system. Any ideas how to solve this?

I installed ignoring the dependency and Thunderbird starts fine.
It's version 11 of Thunderbird and I have the same error when trying to upgrade Firefox to the latest version on the repo.
looks like there's a weird error on my system.

However it seems to be fixed for now, thanks for the fast answer !
