Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Selected Kernel Package
Mar 15, 2010
I've been trying to install Ubuntu Server on an old server since a couple of days and have been unsuccessful. I've google'd a bit but found no solid solution yet to this problem. Everything goes fine and I'm able to partition my SCSI drives and everything. After the installation starts unpacking and copying files this happens. I have to mention that I'm installing from a USB drive with the following added at the end of the normal install options:
Version I'm trying to install: Ubuntu 9.10 i386 Server
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2000+
RAM: DDR 2*256MB
MOBO: ECS K7VTA3 VIA KT266A socket A DDR
I am an extremely new Ubuntu Server user. I am trying to install NFS on a new Ubuntu Server 10.10 installation. When running the command sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap, I was previously getting the message:
E: unable to locate package nfs-kernel-server
I'm sure I don't have the correct sources for installation, I just don't know source I need to add.
I am trying to install aircrack but when I try to a get an error message that says unable to locate package. The exact messages are:
The program 'airmon-ng' is currently not installed.
You can install it by typing:
I am pretty new to ubuntu so I am not really sure what I am doing. I don't know if I have to enable "universe" or what I should do. I am not sure if it matters but I am also running Ubuntu from my flash drive so maybe that is the problem.
Whenever I try to install a program by Synaptic Package Manager, it downloads packages but it doesn't install those.It tries to connect to downloads.openwrt.org but unables to connect because of connection time out. I have attached a screenshot of it.
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.
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04. I have ultimate edition that has almost all packages. Now, i would like to install selected packages from ultimate edition. I need a to know how to install the selected packages by resolving the dependencies locally.
I have recently installed 11.2 on my laptop and am having problems with installing flashplayer. What happens is I go to install software, select flashplayer to be installed, click apply and the stupid things starts downloading all the upgradable programs. I have not selected any of these to be upgraded as I only have 600mb of downloading left to last me 10 days and won't waste it on upgrading. Is there a reason for the package manager installing programs that aren't selected?? Is there a way to use Install Software without this happening??
I use a pretty fresh installed RHEL 5.4, which should be very similar to Fedora. After the basic installation I installed xen and xen-kernel via yum with no errors. I can select the xen-kernel at boot time. But after booting the normal kernel shows up.
i am unable to print specific pages in Ubuntu. i connected my HP Desk jet F2120 printer to my Ubuntu machine and it installed correctly but now if i want to print only the certain pages from a word document or PDFs i am unable to print it. there is a option of pages in print menu which says : " example 1-3,7,11" i don't know what that means.
I have a multi-user machine with several network interfaces (Ethernet, if that matters). I wish to grant selected users, or groups, full access to selected network interfaces (including ability to adjust IP address and to bind to low ports, but *only* on those interfaces). It is important to me that an user/group does not such full control over other interfaces. Granting partial, or temporary, root permissions is OK; it's a friendly environment.How do I go about it?System: Linux 2.6.recent; usual Debian setup (can be adjusted if needed).
Im not able to install the package mesa-32bit from this repository: Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.3. It tells me to make a huge change on architecture on many packages, plus downgrading mesa to 7.8.2 from 7.9 !
Is it possible to get a package via yum that has the kernel sources? In the "Add/Remove Software" GUI program, I have enabled the "Fedora source" s/w repository. Even then, the only kernel package I can find is the "The Linux Kernel", linux-188.8.131.52-170... which essentially provides only the kernel binaries and headers but not the source.
I was installing some program from Ubuntu software center, and suddelny downloading have stopped and does not go further, I tried to exit from that Ubuntu Software Center but I could not... I restart the computer, then I tried to install another program from USC, but it gave me an error with instruction to run sudo pdkg --configer -a or something like that.,, I did it and try again to install from USC and still can not be able to install or download any program any more. ...

after alot of work with my system, I've gotten most of it working It's a Toshiba C655-S5049 with a Atheros AR9285 Wireless card, so lots of fun getting that to work, anyway I'm trying to update my system, and it wont update, if I try update manager it won't do it because it's dealing with restricted drivers, and if I try in terminal I get E: Unable to locate package updateAnyway, any suggestions? I've been trying to work this out, and it's getting annoying. The key Drivers that I'm also looking for are, Video:Intel 4500M HD Integrated with Dynamic Sharing Audio:IntelAudio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) Also, does anyone happen to know how well battlefield 2 will run in wine? it ran pretty good on windows, just wondering how it will do in ubuntu.
I installed a command line version of Ubuntu 10.10 using the alternate install disk. To suit my needs, I have to install the gcc C compiler in this environment. When connected under root, I enter the command: 'apt-get install gcc'. The error 'E: unable to locate package gcc' is then displayed on screen. how to install gcc? Is this package available from the alternate install disk or do we have to download it. If I dowbload a tar file, where should I copy it to to be able to have the install application see it?
