           Summary: Locales & Glibc2.3.5 dependency
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

I am not very computer savvy as i thought. Tinkering with my filesystem I
installed a Libc6 deb from "ubuntu packages" page and caused a bunch of
problems. I had installed this through konsole. Loading up my Synaptic brought
up a bunch of broken packages which i had to delete. I realize that my
repositories are broken but when i tried to fix the problem by manually
downloading deb files like "Locales", "lsb", "ubuntu-base", and the "language
packages", I recieve an error because of the dependency for locales on a file
"glib-2.3.5". I know this to be a virtual file on "Libc6" (which worked when i
reinstalled it). The problem is essentially that synaptic can't locate the glibc
file (either that or i don't have the file at all). I have tried to force
install the packages on konsole--which actually worked, but Synaptic still
recognizes them as broken, except for libc6. Please help me with this problem as
I am a newbie with the linux experience. For instance, are there any backport
repositories i can install these files from, and if there are, how do I add them
to synaptic?
