Software :: Compile And Install Xmonad Package By Package?
Jul 28, 2011
I originally attempted to compile and install xmonad package by package, and the end result was this:
$ xmonad /home/adx/.xmonad/xmonad-x86_64-linux: executeFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)
X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) Major opcode of failed request: 2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes) Serial number of failed request: 7 Current serial number in output stream: 8 I figured I left out a flag on the make file or something, so I tried the slackbuild packages next; however, the same error was present at launch.
why it is that when I download the sendmail debian source package for etch and build it using dpkg-buildpackage -b -nc I get a 645543 byte sendmail executable whereas when I download the sendmail binary that is 703292 bytes.
I'm experiencing the following problem with latex. A tex file using using the beamer documentclass and the pstricks package will not compile properly. To be more precise, latex-ing results in a dvi file but the pspictures are missing. When using pdflatex I'm repeatedly prompted with a?. Replying with enter all the time gives a pdf file without the pictures again. I'm running 11.2 with KDE and the normal preinstalled texlive. Version 2008-13-15.1-x86_64 from the Update repo that is. A minimal example where this happens would be:
I want to build a package from source using src2pkg, but I don't know how to avoid library miss match. Suppose I have Firefox 3.5.2 on Slackware 13.0 64 and I want to upgrade it to 3.6.2. Last time when I venturesomely installed Firefox-3.6.2-current into my Slackware 13.0, I got library miss match. Thus, instead of upgrading the whole packages to current (which is impractical and cumbersome), I want to build 3.6.2 from source. How can I do this? Is there any guideline how to use src2pkg? Or should I rather use makepkg? Do I need to create a Makefile?
Is there an easier way (without using a package manager) to upgrade programs? For example, I just want to upgrade Amarok. In order to do this, I've had to upgrade every one of it's dependencies because they've all had minor upgrades from the versions I already have installed.
Is there an easier way to compile programs and their dependencies manually or are package managers the only way?
I'm updating a working kickstart configuration.Got a good iso from it the last time used.I simply want to add 2 rpms to the installation. So I added the rpms (libganglia & libconfuse) into the ../Server directory. I added those two names to the %packages section in the .cfg file. And I added those two names into two new appropriate lines in the ../Server/repodata/comps.xml file.
I ran "createrepo -g repodata/comps.xml ." from the ../Server (rpms) directory. I then ran my "mkisofs" without issue, and used the resulting .iso. The message I get during installation is "You have specified the package 'libganglia' should be installed. This package does not exist. Would you like to continue or abort your installation?". I've tried several variations of the createrepo command.
I've compiled the last stable ubuntu kernel (2.6.38-...) following this guide: How to compile a Ubuntu 10.10 kernel but in this guide doesn't explain how create linux-libc-dev package for that kernel? How do I do?
I've tried with fakeroot debian/rules binary-arch-headers but it returns an, IMHO, absurd error:
I need to install the following dependencies for synspam on Ubuntu 9.10 karmic server:
Code: sudo aptitude install nfqueue-bindings-perl libsys-syslog-perl libappconfig-perl libnetpacket-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl dpkg -i synspam_version_all.deb Of these, only libnetpacket-perl is not packaged for Ubuntu 9.10 karmic.
Is this functionality present in another 9.10 package with a different name? 10.04 Lucid does have the package: [URL]
Still I am asked to package a war file as an RPM package. That is an unusual RPM packaging(To me). If you guys could guide me I have a war file inside a folder, that folder is inside a tar file as a SOURCE for RPM package. The structure is like below.
I simply want that the war file from sources is transferred to the web app of my tomcat server through RPM. I try to package it as an RPM, but its always giving me errors in %build stage. When I try to remove %build from stage from the spec file, then it says command missing.
My system details are: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64) VERSION = 10 PATCHLEVEL = 1 LSB_VERSION="core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-noarch:core-2.0-x86_64:core-3.0-x86_64"
I am following this guide to installing eclipse via terminal command-line on Linux. However, this seems to be happening lately with all the packages I try to install..I checked the Synaptic Package Manager and reloaded and rebooted the computer, but to no avail.
Is there anyway to show package size that comes up in the search so you don't have to apt-get install package individually and wait for the installation initiation and then reject to install after it gives u the [y/N] confirmation thing?
I just finished installing a dual boot XP/Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for desktop about half an hour ago, and it's my first experience with a Linux OS. Now that my *complete idiot noob* flag is flying, I have an error I think I need to report:An error occurs with the Package Manager, I get this message when I try to run it, and when Ubuntu boots:
E: Encountered a Package with no Package: header E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/ us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_lucid_restricte d_binary-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
This usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependencies I tried to download and install Chrome, and it came up with a similar error.
Is my install corrupt/incomplete or something? My setup is a P4 2.4Ghz, 512Mb RAM, onboard graphics, wireless internet and the HDD is 40GB, split into 2 partitions, and my Ubuntu Partition is 10 GB. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS distribution, and the other OS is Windows XP Professional SP3.I installed Ubuntu by using the Wubi installer.
i first noticed when i tried to get mono via sudo apt-get install mono i got the error
E: Package 'mono' has no installation candidate then i tried to get it through the software center and i noticed the software center wasn't opening.... so i tried searching to find if someone else had the proroblem, they did, one solution was to reinstall python but if i open syapitic software i get the error
I want to get the package "insight", which is a gui for the gnu debugger, but it does not appear in package manager, and there are dependencies and dependencies of dependencies, etc., and I don't want to have to download 15 packages.First of all, why doesn't it show up in package manager? I updated or reloaded or whatever you call it when it updates all data from the repositories.

I'm building a certain RPM package that must require an old version of that same package in order to be installed/upgraded. Is this possible?
For a package foo v5, somewhere in the spec file: "Requires: foo >= 4"
I'm declaring this on the Requires tag of the spec file, but when I try to install or upgrade the package (without having the previous required version installed) I get no dependency error! As for other dependencies it all works fine. If, instead, I create a package named "bar" that "Requires: foo >= 4", when installing I do get the expected dependency error. I'm thinking it's not possible to require an old version of the same package.
Fedora 14 I recently went to install some software using the source files. When I ran the command ./configure I got a message saying that No package gthread-2.0 not found After searching the internet some one had the same problem. I needed to install a package called glib2-devel However, rather that searching the internet. Is there any yum command that can give me that information?
