Peter,

I tried to have embedded browser dillo unpacked and
install to an ARM based board.

But dillo depends on libgtk. When I install libgtk and
complains dependency on libc6. See following errors,

hzhang at hzhang-laptop:~/Desktop/i386-dillo$ sudo dpkg
-i libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18_i386.deb
Selecting previously deselected package libgtk1.2.
(Reading database ... 88127 files and directories
currently installed.)
Unpacking libgtk1.2 (from
libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of
libgtk1.2:
 libgtk1.2 depends on libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1); however:
  Package libc6 is not installed.
 libgtk1.2 depends on libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0); however:
  Package libglib1.2 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing libgtk1.2 (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
 libgtk1.2
