I just write to tell you how I "solved" my problems or where did they
After installing gpe, I finally decided to use ipkg in console mode
because I didn't like GPE Program Manager. When I was installing some
classpath y realize that "file" dependant package was telling me thath
couldn't be configured. That made ldconfig not to work properly and
because of that I had all my problems.
After checking that problems I realize that my repositories were mixing
2007 and 2008 packages.That made to fail configuring dependant packages.
I hope someone having same problem, can find this post and solve his
Thank you very much Oliver. Your comment about ldconfig made me work in
the right way and check dependant packages. Thank you very much again.
