Hi, I tried to install this module but I got an error, so then I saw that I need to run apt-get install libgd2-xpm-dev which I did but I got this:

root@dev:/home/rnd/domains/design.rnd/public_html/app-ui# apt-get install libgd2-xpm-dev

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libgd2-xpm-dev : Depends: libfontconfig1-dev but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

I'm on Debian 6 64bit, do you have any suggestion on that?

My sources.list file is this:

root@dev:/home/rnd/domains/design.rnd/public_html/app-ui# cat /etc/apt/sources.list

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.3 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20111008-19:52]/ squeeze main

deb-src squeeze/updates main

Thanks :)

Just in case someone else bump on that, I had this issue because I used testing sources for debian... NOT A GOOD IDEA! so since I couldn't downgrade nor upgrade fully to testing, I added again testing sources, then I run uptitude update then aptitude install libgd2-xpm-dev and then I removed the testing sources from /etc/apt/sources.list.
