I have a small annoying problem while upgrading ubuntu hardy.
As I don't want to upgrade to Intrepid, due to the many problems a.o.
with nvidia (I have an old Geforce video-card) I want to keep hardy updated.
After what problems with installing nspluginwrapper (thanks Noop)flash
works without a problem in firefox.
However, every time I use the upgrade-manager, it comes back with:
"subprocess /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)"
It than tries to correct this by again installing flash-plugin-nonfree,
it saya flas-plugin is installed (true), it then encounters an illegal
option (-n) and stops, telling me again there is the error -1.
Sorry for the long explanation as it is only 'annoying' but I would like
to solve it.
system: AMD-64, GEforce 4000 ubuntu hardy kernel 2-6-24-19.
Can anybody give some help how to correct this?
