Debian :: Dpkg Shows Installed Pkg Is Uninstalled?

Aug 8, 2010

I have downloaded a Non-free Deb pkg, when I tried to install it using "# dpkg -i pkgname", it appeared to install as expected. The pkg exists, I found the new directory and the executable file, but if I try to run it I get kicked out of my session, and back to GDM.

When I run "# dpkg -l pkgname", immediately after the install, I get this: "un pkgname <none> (no description available)"

Since it is not installed I can not remove it, or reconfigure it.

I run Debian Testing with Openbox as my window manager.

Debian :: Cleaning Up Apt/dpkg After Deleting Installed Files?

Mar 9, 2010

I'd like to clean up apt/dpkg so that it doesn't think the package whose files I've deleted is still installed, but when I run:


apt-get remove --purge linux-image-2.6.32-2.slh.4

I get the following:


Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package linux-image-2.6.32-2.slh.4

The package does show up in the list when I run the command:


dpkg -l "linux-image*"

with "ii" in the 1st column, whatever that means. Should I just rm the matching files in /var/lib/dpkg/info?

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Use Dpkg To Rollback Recently Installed Packages?

May 30, 2010

Using Ubuntu Lucid with Gnome desktop.I was just playing around trying to find a media player I liked and installed Bangarang via the Software Centre. This took an absolute age and now I realise why - it has basically installed the entire KDE environment and associated lib packages as well.I have found /var/ log/ dpkg.log shows what has been installed and of course I can wade through that to make a list of all the packages and uninstall them all via Synaptic. But that will take a long time to do.

Is there anyway to somehow automate rolling back any package changes since a certain time?I've checked the man for dpkg and I can't see any mention of anything like this.

Ubuntu :: Dpkg - List Manually Installed Packages?

Sep 17, 2010

I'd like to list all packages I installed since the installation. The tricky part is that I don't care for dependencies - only clean list of what I ordered to install. I went through man pages and I did not find anything relevant. Also /var/log/apt/history* doesn't say what I requested and what came as a dependency.

For gentoo-aware folks, I am looking for something like "world" file.

Ubuntu :: Dpkg Lists Files For Kernels Not Installed (Lucid) / Fix It?

May 26, 2010

Today I was trying to clean up my system and am a little bit stumped on something.

I used synaptic to clean up installed kernels, except for the one that was currently running. Once done I went ahead and restarted my computer.

Grub lists only one kernel available. However when I go to a prompt and

issue dpkg --list|grep linux-image I get several items listed code...

2.6.32-22-generic is the kernel I am running so I assume the "ii" files have something to do with the kernel in memory.

However, what are the "rc" files that are listed? Resource files? All three kernels referenced have been removed a LONG time ago and when I look for installed headers, or anything else, there is nothing installed for *-12, *-12 or *-14.

And when I check Synaptic for just the kernel number I get a list of packages with no version install, no latest version notation and no description (attached screenshot).

Just what are those references and how does one remove them?

Debian :: Uninstalled Package And Checking Dependency

Aug 19, 2015

Is there a way to find if a package is a dependency of some other package/s that you have installed it.

For instance, let's say there is a library called libkolabxml1

Now if I just install it and ask :-

Code: Select all$$ aptitude why libkolabxml1

Unable to find a reason to install libkolabxml1.

But I remember it being useful/needed somewhere.

Debian :: How To Get Rid Of Option To Remove Uni-booting Even Though Uninstalled Program

Sep 4, 2015

So I had decided to install debian but I thought I couls do it by myself without anything which I was wrong about, because I wound up installing Debian on my C: drive/windows partition. So far nothing has been bad and I am still running windows but now my C: drive has been renamed to "Install Debian GNU/Linux" I know the name doesn't mean shit but I'm curious why every time I go to change it it auto changes back. Also now every time it boots up it asks me to choose between UNetbootin, which i uninstalled, and windows. how do i get rid of the option to remove unetbootin even though I uninstalled the program. Same with Debian I deleted everything i could find but it still changes the drive name, how to fix any of this and might there be files I haven't found where would they be located?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Wants To Reinstall Uninstalled Packages

Nov 6, 2015

I use Jessie, with the Aptitude curses interface for package management. It seems that every time I successfully uninstall/purge a package (along with its dependencies), then the next time I try to install/uninstall anything else it wants to reinstall that package (and its dependencies). It takes several (I haven't counted) "don't install" instructions from me before it will forget about it.

Debian :: Many Package Uninstalled - Can't Seem To Upgrade To A Higher Kernal

Dec 27, 2010

I was attempting to install CRYPT-SSLEAY for perl. at the end of the installation many packages were auto uninstalled including aptitude & perlmagick ( both i need ) I think the system is tell me I need to upgrade the kernel but all my sources.list seem to be bad.

then I received this message:

The installation of a 2.6 kernel _could_ ask you to install a new libc
first, this is NOT a bug, and should *NOT* be reported. In that case,
please add etch sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run:
apt-get install -t etch linux-image-2.6
Then reboot into this new kernel, and proceed with your upgrade

Debian Hardware :: Uninstalled Video Card - Can't Use Motherboard Graphics Now

Aug 23, 2014

My computer boots up, grub loads up, but I enter tty1 instead of the desktop environment.

I am using Debain GNU/Linux 7.0 (wheezy).

My mother board is an ASUS M4A88T-M.

Former graphics card was a Radeon, bought within the past couple years, pretty high specs. (I am having trouble determining what the card is right now, I'll update my post when I figure it out).

I remember having to mess around with some config files to get it to work at first, but right now how to 'unfix' it now.

Hardware :: 3 SATA HDs Installed - Drive 2 Shows No Partitions In F12

May 2, 2010

I have three sata drives installed in my machine. 1 is my boot drive, contains a windows install, and a linux install. All is well here. Drives 2 and 3 are simple fat32 volumes, I store my data on drive 2, and periodically sync it to drive 3. I do this simply for backup reasons. It was only recently that I setup this scheme. Previously I had all 3 drives in a fakeraid setup. Raid 5. I broke the array to set things up as I've described. All is well in windows, all 3 drives work as expected. However, in linux (fedora 12), drive 2 shows no partitions! If I do an fdisk -l, it shows sdb1, but if I attempt to mount it, I'm told that /dev/sdb1 does not exist, and in fact, /dev/sdb1 does NOT exist. sdc1 however, does exist, and is mountable.

A few things I've noticed with seem relevant.
Gnome reports a raid5 drive, which if I try to interact with it, fails.
Gparted shows sdb as a standard drive.
Dmesg shows the following, I've grepped out sdb and sdc for comparison, as they should be identical.

[root@azure ~]# dmesg | egrep 'sdb|sdc'
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] 1250263728 512-byte logical blocks: (640 GB/596 GiB)
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA ....

Seems to me that the lines:
raid5: device sdb operational as raid disk 1
disk 1, o:1, dev:sdb
have something to do with it.

I did play around with mdraid while my array was apart, but I cant seem to find any method of testing sdb to see if something is somehow still configured on that drive. I've re-written the partition table, and even performed a low-level format on the drive, nothing seems to restore its function in linux.

Ubuntu :: Updates With Tweak And Video Codec - Error "dpkg Was Interrupted, You Must Manually Run 'sudo Dpkg --configure -a' To Correct The Problem"

May 26, 2011

I installed the software Ubuntu Tweak yesterday and I was satisfied of how it worked. today, surfing the internet I was hoping to find a solution to a couple of problems that I have: the computer sometimes get stuck when opening videos or photos - I can't see streaming TV. when the internet browser was asking me to install plug-in in order to show the videos I tried to install them but errors occurred.

so I followed the instruction in [URL] (many of these things didn't work and the terminal was showing error messages...) now after rebooting I have got the unity 2D I think (which is fine as I can't notice great differences) but I can't install the updates from Ubuntu Tweak the error message is: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report. how can I fix it and get my video codecds?

Debian :: Using Dpkg-buildpackage To Build Qt?

Oct 12, 2010

I'm trying to build Qt using dpkg-buildpackage. Briefly, the problem I have consists in that using dpkg-buildpackage I get a linking error, that I don't get if I run configure and make directly, without the mediation of dpkg-buildpackage. One of the issues that we have is that, using dpkg-buildpackage, the configure command is not capable of finding the .qmake.cache file, so, the environment variables set in the configure script and saved in that file are not read, which causes that the apropiate linking parameters are not used. I guess that the problem is caused by a difference in the environment of execution of the configure command. I don't know in which way the dpkg-buildpackage is changing the environment so that it makes fail the building process.

I run 'make deb-x11' to start building process using dpkg-buildpackage: This is the main Makefile:

X11_DEB = gvr-qt-x11-lgpl_$(X11_VERSION)_i386.deb
