I am a new user of DSL and was trying to install kde.  Everything went ok, until libx11 and libxt6 started to be processed.

These both failed because of a ln command in which -b was used in the .deb file?

Help!  Is the .deb file for libx11-6_4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1_i386 and libxt6_4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1_i386.deb corrupted?

I downloaded the packages and then tried to force an install with the --force-all option;  The errors related to ln and are shown below:

dpkg: error processing libx11.......deb (--install):
subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1
Unpacking libxt6 (from libxt6...deb) ...
ln: invalid option -- b
BuxyBox v1.00-pre10 (2004.06.12-14:15+000) MULTI-CALL BINARY


etc etcl.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

Get the gnu-utils.dsl extension and install it.

Then try to install the Debian packages again.
