Error Installing Chromium

Sat Jun 30, 2012 6:09 pm

Please forgive my ignorance...absolute newbie!

I tried installing Chromium following the elinux wiki tutorial and I get an error message;

(Reading database ... 65%dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
files list file for package 'libpng12-0' contains empty filename
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice as to what I should do?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Which distro are you using?

Regardless, an apt-get update should flush out what appears to be a corrupt catalog entry.

Thanks for the quick reply...

I'm using the debian squeeze image from the download page.

I've just tried 'apt-get update', this seemed to work fine, but I still get the error message when I try to install Chromium.
