Debian Installation :: All Packages Downloaded Gone - Use Package Downloaded?
Mar 1, 2010
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
Recently I installed airlines-themes, using the command
Code: sudo aptitude install airlines-theme It worked perfectly. My question is where are all these packages downloaded locally, so that if needed I can install them later without an Internet connection. Not just theme, I can do it for other application as well (for eg. ubuntu tweak and many others).
Thereś trouble with my keyboard and since no body is able to help iḿ thinking of reinstalling.I like to know if fedora keeps a cache of downloaded packages so that it can save me the bandwidth after i reinstall??
without internet connection (on Ubuntu), and need to install MySql. I have all packages needed for instalation, but i cannot import them in Synaptic Package Manager. how to add this? I have tried with: file->add downloaded packages, but it do nothing.
I am a newbie to Ubuntu. I have installed Ubuntu STudio 10.04 Lucid, and to install Open Office, I have chosen the below method:
1. Went to System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package manager. 2. Here, I chose Open Office Package and marked something, which I now dont remember. 3. Download of the associated packages have been completed, but it is not installed. Around 99 mb is downloaded, but I am not sure where it is saved.
The problem is that, it is not yet installed. After the download, it behaved like it was installing, I waited, but of no use. How to install the same and where the downloaded packages sit in the system?
Interested in trialing Varkon and used Synaptic Package Manager to download and install. According to the [url]...nstalling.html it should be there under 'Applications'. I've looked through them all and no sign of Varkon. I've also tried to see if Varkon was installed so I looked via Ubuntu Software Center under installed software. No sign. Did a file search for Varkon.
this seems to keep downloaded packages. in the dir specified at:
the next time i wish to use these packages and install them, how would i use yum to do this or do i just use rpm instead ? Would it be necessary to connect to the internet to do this? What about those package dependencies will i have to install them all one at a time?
I am about to go on a last minute trip abroad and I need to bring a laptop with me so Im getting a lend of my mothers one. It has windows 7 and I will be sticking ubuntu on it. The problem is there are alot of programs/packages that I need and I wont have time to download them all. So is it possible to transfer the packages/programs I need from my PC to this laptop?
it is possible for me to save/backup packages downloaded using Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Center? Where I live (South Africa) we have seriously limited internet and I do not want to download all my extra packages again if I have to reinstall Linux for some reason.
I have downloaded the package Sauerbraten (game) partially through Software centre(Ubuntu 10.04). Now I don't want to install it. how to delete that partially downloaded package? It is wasting too much space....It is located in /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/ I tried to delete them manually but it didnt work...
I have a flaky internet connection. So it's important for me to be able to resume partially downloaded files. I would like the YAST software manager to resume downloads of packages where I left off in case of any error. Is this possible?
I have a download cap therefore when I install Debian, I like to have a backup of all downloaded .deb files that I can install from rather than download all over again. From what I've read, it should be a simple case of copying the .deb files to /var/cache/apt/archives and then install using apt-get. But apt-get seems to 'ignore' them. Am I supposed to do something to get apt to use them? Bearing in mind, I need to do this from a console as there will be no DE.
I am trying to install a brand new installation of Opensuse 11.3 on a PC. I am using the Gnome desktop. When installing I get SO many errors saying "YAST2: package "xxx" could not be downloaded" or "installation of package "xxx.rpm failed." Ignore, Abort Retry.
I ran a checksum on the iso I downloaded from this site and it checks out. What is going on?
I seem to run into a problem with downloading the latest Fedora 12 Unity Re-Spins with jigdo. At the end I'm getting the message that 3 packages couldn't be downloaded. Is there any other means to download those images?
I want to install latest downloaded package of openssh v 5.6(tar.gz) from original site but not succeed. steps followed: 1. remove rpm with: rpm -e openssh-ser....rpm 2. extract package, go into directory and run ./configure command
I have dowmloaded the latest version of Gnome Nanny, but have run into an instal problem at the first hurdle:
I have extracte the folder to Documents: Cd/ to the folder and run the ./configure command and get this message: No package 'pygtk-2.0' found
I have checked the install files and edited the lines which contain the above to now read pygtk -2.0 >=2.8 as 2.8 is the version of python I have installed. In package manager it only goes back to v2.2.
I'm thinking on trying Debian, I searched through their website and I went to the download site and I see there are 5 dvds torrent files? Which one should I download? I mean is debian that heavy that i need 5 dvds to get everything installed? By the way is there a kde version? I want kde.
