    Hello,
    I recently switched to Debian after I had enough of conanical's BS, im a long time FreeBSD user but games play even less nice on UNIX than Linux(Hard to believe). I wanted to play some Brutal Doom/Starmade recently but realized I hadn't installed the propietary drivers yet so set out to do so. Low and behold I have some broken packages/unmet dependencies
    and no matter what I've tried.

    #apt-get clean
    doesn't help but doesn't return an error
    #apt-get autoclean
    same as above
    #apt-get -f install
    returns two different errors (depending on how it feels)
    either
    Broken pipe
    or
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/libc-bin_2.15-0ubuntu10.4_amd64.deb
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    Can't find any good documentation online (45minutes of googling and emailing friends)
    here is the output of #dpkg --configure -a

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libc6-dev:amd64:
    libc6-dev:amd64 depends on libc6 (= 2.15-0ubuntu10.4); however:

    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libc6-i386:
    libc6-i386 depends on libc6 (= 2.15-0ubuntu10.4); however:
    Version of libc6:amd64 on system is 2.13-38.

    dpkg: error processing libc6-i386 (--configure):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    libc6-dev:amd64
    libc-dev-bin
    libc6-i386

    Maybe manual installs? any help is appreciated.

    FIXED just reinstalled the OS and tried again and the video driver installed fine having different issues now but unrelated to the original problem
