Fedora Installation :: Install Additional Packages From DVD?

Jun 17, 2010

I've installed Fedora from the Live CD (Fedora 13). The Installation Guide says that if you install from the DVD (or, as I understand it, the five or so CDs) you get the choice of installing lots more software. I've now got a copy of the CD. But how do I use it to install the extra software it contains? The Installation Guide says use the Add/Remove Software tool. But that tries to download stuff from the Internet. Nothing about installing from the DVD.

Ubuntu One :: Need To Install Some Additional Packages?

Jul 10, 2010

After I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.4 I could see Ubuntu One in the Places menu. (and subsequently have access to my files etc there).I have now installed 10.4 on a new machine (clean install) and I don't seem to have access from 'Places' now. The only way I can get to it is via a web browser.Is it just hidden away somewhere? Or do I need to install some additional packages?

I have removed elementary repository and reinstalled the nautilus but it didn't restore the default nautilus. How can I restore it? Is there any additional packages to install?

Debian Installation :: Reinstalling With Original CD And Additional Packages?

Jan 19, 2010

What is the simplest way to combine an original installation CD with several hundred additional packages that I have downloaded since the installation? My goal is not to waste future bandwidth downloading packages I already have downloaded. Bandwidth has costs both in time and money.

Background Recently I started experimenting in earnest with Debian Lenny in VirtualBox. I am new to Debian but not Linux based systems. I have seen enough the past several days with my experiments that I would like to migrate from my current Linux based system to Debian.

I installed the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to a virtual machine. In the past several days I have downloaded and installed several hundred packages since the initial installation. I have encountered no major hiccups along the way.

For future use and safekeeping, I copied all of the downloaded packages from /var/cache/apt/archives to a different directory. To become more comfortable with the Debian installation process, I want to repeat the installation several times using the original 5.03 KDE CD --- and all of the subsequently downloaded packages.

As I am new to Debian I am looking for advice and instructions for the simplest way to perform these reinstallations. I would like to perform them without any internet connection. If I understand correctly, I can copy the additional packages to a DVD and then use apt-cdrom to add the disk to my sources.list. Then I should be able to 1) use the Debian 5.03 KDE CD to perform the initial installation, 2) install the additional packages manually. If I understand correctly, something like dpkg -i * should work with the additional packages? Doable?

The "common sense" way is to somehow merge the original Debian 5.03 KDE CD with my additional packages to create my own personal Debian 5.03 KDE Plus DVD for my personal installation use. All I would want is to merge the downloaded packages into the original CD to create my own installation DVD. Nothing fancy or dramatic. Being new to Debian I don't pretend to understand the Debian Installer mechanism. Yet I can tell from the original CD image that I need to merge my additional packages into the pool directory.

I found the wiki how-to for simple-cdd. I started to run the app but stopped because I was unsure how much bandwidth the app is using. The simple-cdd tool needs internet access, but is simple-cdd downloading all the deb packages again? I don't want any of the installed packages to be re-downloaded when I already have them at hand. I'm not comprehending the how-to very well or the various options. I also want to perform a complete installation without an internet connection.

Debian Installation :: Can't Download Any Additional Packages - Update The Version - Unable To Connect To The Internet

Jul 14, 2011

I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?

I've got Ubuntu ReMix 10.04 successfully running off a 4-GB JumpDrive.When I go to installing additional software packages, the package "appears" to have installed itself onto the JumpDrive and into Ubuntu Remix 10.04.But, when I properly shut it down, and come back latter ... those software packages that appeared to have installed earlier, are no longer on the JumpDrive ! Nor, do they any longer show up on the NetBook ReMix menu tree.This has happened with AbiWord / Scribus / QCad / Gwelled and several other software packages.

Ubuntu Servers ::additional Packages For A System Not On The Internet?

Oct 25, 2010

I have created my first linux server using Ubuntu 10.04 server edition. My only experience with linux has been the desktop edition.

The initial trouble I'm having is that this server is on an isolated network without Internet access. I'd like to use a Gnome desktop like I'm used to in order to get up to speed quickly.

How do I get additional packages for a system that is not on the Internet? The end goal for this machine is a simple file depository for a W98 network using Samba shares. To boot from an IDE drive and share a 5 drive software RAID5 for data storage.

Programming :: Filter Out The Additional Packages That Exist On A New Server?

Apr 15, 2010

I've got two files. They both contain package names. Is there any way I can go through the package list on one file, and search to see if each package exists in the other file? What I'd want to do, is if the package name is found in the the main file, then go to the next line. If its not found then print that package name to another file.

I know you can use diff, but it doesn't seem to be that straight forward. As I understand it diff searches line by line, so if line one doesn't match line one in another file, then it prints it out. That's not exactly what I want.

I just really need an easy way to filter out the additional packages that exist on a new server. If I have a list of packages that aren't on the original server, then i can just delete them.

Not sure if I've made any sense but there must be a quicker way to do what i need to. It would take me ages to scan manually through the package names in each list, and highlight the ones i dont need.

Debian Installation :: Network - Find The Additional Files To Install

Sep 5, 2010

I have made a Debian minimal installer on a USB drive according to this manual: [URL] I have installed a minimal version of Debian, meaning text-only, with only the kernel, shell, filesystem, and a few programs. Now I need to install the rest of it over the internet. So here are my questions:

1. Where can I find the additional files to install?

2. Where can I find a manual that tells you how to install them? This manual doesn't say anything about that.

3. Are you supposed to install the files during the installation process, or do you get them online through the minimal Debian (using wget, etc.)?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install NVidia Driver Via Additional Hardware GUI

Nov 9, 2010

I've seen may similar issues to mine, but some are different and others are identical, but have been resolved since in the repositories. I install Maverick from CD, reboot, update via update manager, reboot, install nVidia driver via additional hardware gui, reboot and I can't get into X, I get tty1 instead with a text login prompt.

dmesg tells me:
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
purging nvidia-* and deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf means that I can get back into X, but without any hardware drivers.
I have both an onboard and PCI-E nVidia graphics adapters but my PCI-E one is primary.

Fedora Installation :: Select Packages For Minimal Install?

Apr 5, 2010

I'm new to Fedora (not linux) and I was wondering how I would go about doing a minimal install of fedora 12. I downloaded the live disc but it doesn't give me installation options (I'm new to minimal installs so I don't know that much). I also searched all over looking for a fedora minimal install iso, something similar to the ubuntu minimal install iso that is only 12mb.

Fedora Installation :: Set Up A Script - To Install Packages And Software

Oct 18, 2010

Basically what I want to do is switch from Ubuntu to Fedora as my base system. I normally do a minimal / CLI install of Ubuntu and then run my script to install packages and software I need.

Thing is, my script is made for Ubuntu and thus, I now have to make it compatible with Fedora. I already switched all the apt-get install commands with yum install but still I'm unsure whether the script is compatible.

Another thing is that I don't know if all these packages are in the Fedora repo's. So:

Would you check the script for any errors and/or packages that aren't in the Fedora repo's? (Lines that're commented out can be ignored)

I'm particularly insure about the yum install -y part and the yum dist-upgrade -y --force-yes part.

Fedora Installation :: Installing Additional Programs To A USB?

Oct 14, 2009

I have a laptop that I want to dual boot winxp and linux. I'd like to be able to run a mythtv frontend on it so that I can watch shows in my office and not lose the screen space on my regular desktop. I was thinking of three possible directions to go. I have a question to go with each though.

1.) This machine has an existing winxp install that I don't want to mess up, but is there something on a Fedora live cd that I could use to smashing that winxp install into a smaller space and repartitioning the drive? If so, I could just do an old fashion dual boot from the harddrive.

2.) I put a live install on a usb drive. If I do that, how do I install mythfrontend and make it persistant on the usb drive?

3.) I treat a usb drive like a regular hard drive and just do a normal fedora install, assuming the install sees the usb drive as a sd? device. I guess I don't have a question with this option, but I would rather avoid it since it will take a lot more space on the usb drive.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Install Additional 32bit Openssl From Source On F10?

Mar 11, 2009

I need to run a proprietary VPN client (Aventail) that can't use the openssl libraries that are packaged with 64bit F10:The Fedora openssl package does something differently from the original openssl.org package that makes it incompatible with Aventail (see bugzilla ticket 477073) I also believe the Aventail client software requires 32-bit libraries. So, I've determined I need to install 32bit openssl directly from openssl.org, then link my Aventail client to that. Note that I don't want to replace the 64bit openssl libraries currently on my system.

Based on the Bugzilla ticket, I believe I know how to hook up Aventail before I install it simply by supplying a few specific soft links if I can make/compile/whatever the 32bit openssl.org libraries and keep them in their own isolated directory. how to get the 32bit openssl libraries installed in a little corner by themselves on my 64bit system. give a step-by-step on on the commands necessary to place a 32bit version of openssl all by itself in a directory of my choosing?

Fedora Installation :: Too Many Installed Packages In Text Mode Install?

Jan 23, 2009

On some computers I can not use graphical installation interface of Fedora 9. So I use text mode.I would like to have a very small installation with very few installed packages, so at package selection I uncheck everything. In text mode installation there is no option to customize installed packages down to package names. I can only check main themes.So I uncheck everything and installation starts. This method results over 400 packages to bo installed... This is too much with many unnecessary packages.If I use graphical interface and uncheck every package name at custom package selection then about 150 packages will be installed.Is there any good way to use textmode installation and don't install more than 400 packages?

Fedora Installation :: Configuration Script That Install All Packages From Two Sets?

I need one help in Fedora 10. I've tried searching all over google and I've not found anything relevant to my problem. I installed Fedora 10 choosing only the basic set of packges. i.e. I uncheck 'Office and Prod' and 'Software Dev' during installation. I wanted to install the base packages and then wanted to install what I need later on. Now that everything is stable and working fine, I want to install the software dev and office package but I dont know how to do this. I am not finding any option to install packages from the DVD or such. Is there any config script that will install all the packages from those two sets. I dont want to install package one by one.

Fedora Installation :: Recompile In 9 If The Packages Installed Through Yum Install Command?

Mar 6, 2009

Currently i am using mapserver 5.0.3 , AGG 2.5-6 on fedora 9. I need some help with mapserver and AGG support. I am trying to use AGG/PNG outformat in the mapfile as well as i added precisely. When i call the link through browser i recieved the following error:

loadOutputFormat(): General error message. OUTPUTFORMAT clause references driver AGG/PNG, but this driver isn't configured. It is clearly evident that from the error, the driver is not configured. since all the mapserver version 5 suppotrs AGG rendering backend, so i checked whether mapserver supports AGG or not.

[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$ mapserv -v
[kapil@localhost cgi-bin]$

I found that my mapserver doesn't support AGG means SUPPORTS = AGG is missing in the above output. But i have already installed AGG in my system. In order to clear this issue i gone through many threads in forums, but i was not satisfied with the answers. Atlast i came to know that, i have to recompile the mapserver with AGG. The following link gives you some idea about compiling mapserver with AGG in linux [URL] But the problem now i am facing is i have installed both the mapserver and AGG through YUM INSTALL command so i dont know how to recompile mapserver with AGG support. I think, there will be no configuration file normally when installing through Yum insatll command.

Fedora Installation :: Additional Firmware Required Killed F12?

Nov 22, 2009

While doing some basic tweaks, nautilus, panel, display etc I got a pop-up: Additional Firmware Required "to make hardware in this computer function correctly". No more detail than that. Like signing a blank check so I said "go for it". When I rebooted the display was hosed. Like the refresh rate was wrong. So off to xorg.conf to fix it. There is no xorg.conf. After four hours of searching forums and google I gave up and reinstalled (only an hour). This time I made a backup (cp -a) before letting F12 fix the non-existent problem. Tried again very carefully to be sure that what killed the display was the additional firmware. True. That kills my display. Only problem is the backup cp -a when copied back in would boot but would not let me log in!? I could boot "single" change the password, but it said that was already the password.

for me F12 is a "one-day-distro". I have multiple partitions with Ubuntu, Mandriva, SuSE, Slitaz ... My first Linux was Fedora Core 4 and I will try the next Fedora release. For now back to Ubuntu 9.04. I'm still testing 9.10. My graphics is on-board Intel. I think it's 965G chipset. This is a Dell E520N. How would I tell what not to do that firmware addition?
