Boost1.49.0 is listed as a dependency for gazebo in the quantal version. Be sure you are not running a precise distribution using a quantal sources.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.

If that is not the reason, some extra information is would be good:

  1. Ubuntu distribution being used and architecture (32/64bits)
  2. Clean installation or upgrading?
  3. Output from > grep osrfoundation > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list

tnx! (in gazebo-latest.list >> deb quantal main) (in ros-latest.list >>deb precise main) i change it to0 "precise" and trying to re install with synaptic. it's work
