I am posting this because I did a dist-upgrade in AntiX 8.5 today and this was the second time I received the above error. I got this same error in AntiX 11 Beta testing when I did a dist-upgrade a few days ago on my other box.

I thought since I was running Sid in AntiX 11 that maybe that was why I got that error along with running latest Liqourix Kernel. This does not seem to be the cause of the Problem. Anti was patient enough to coach me through the problem so I thought I should post here on the walk through in case this happens to anybody else.

Anti said
Do another apt-get purge halevt, apt-get clean and remove the files that refer to halevt in /var/lib/dpkg/info

Then apt-get update
apt-get install halevt

If you get the same error remove the files that refer to halevt in /var/lib/dpkg/info and then do apt-get -f install


I followed this suggestion today and rectified the error. My readout below after following Antis suggestion in Antix 8.5 dist-upgrade to wheezy today.

I had already purged halevt before above readout. I had to remove the files that refer to halevt in /var/lib/dpkg/info before doing apt-get -f install again. Just posting this for info for later quires so maybe it will be picked up on on the net when searched for. Maybe it will save Anti some stress and headaches. 8)
