Description Daniel Lo Nigro 2015-05-09 18:13:10 UTC
I'm trying to upgrade from Mono 3.10 to Mono 4.0, and the Debian package for the FastCGI server appears to be broken. It's still got a version number of 3.8 rather than 4.0, and installing it returns this error:

"perl-modules : Breaks: mono-fastcgi-server4 (< 3.8-2.1) but 3.8-0xamarin2 is to be installed"

It seems like I can't downgrade perl-modules since other packages on the system rely on it.

For now I've just installed XSP from source, but this is not ideal as I'd like to keep using everything from packages where possible.

Is this with Debian 8? Doesn't happen on Debian 7?

Sorry, it looks like my comment didn't post. This is with Debian Testing, I haven't tried with stable.
