Ubuntu Installation :: Package Manager - Usb To Ethernet Port Converter To Bypass

Jan 21, 2011

I used a usb to ethernet port converter to bypass this issue. I have a laptop on which I have installed Xubuntu with a live cd. I am now trying to get ndiswrapper to work but apparently I need to compile it. Apparently I need build-essential to compile ndiswrapper. However, when I try to install build-essential from the cd it fails to find the other required packages.

Now I have no internet connection on this laptop (it has no ethernet port) so I have been transferring packages one or two at a time on a usb stick... I have noticed after some time that either with sudo apt-get or the synaptic package manager if there is more than one dependency it will always fail to find the 2nd. Am I going crazy? I am about to abandon Ubuntu to see if I have more luck elsewhere...

Ubuntu :: Package Manager Says Have A Broken Package And Wants To 'upgrade' To The Older Broken One?

Sep 1, 2011

I was having a problem with a fresh 11.04 install and the VPN software I use for work. I found the fix was to upgrade the software, so I downloaded an RPM, converted it to .deb and installed it via dpkg. The install worked and the VPN software now works, but Package Manager says I have a broken package and wants to 'upgrade' to the older broken one. How can I fix this without breaking my VPN SW again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install "The Package System Is Broken"

Oct 20, 2010

This is my first linux install, Fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and first thing I do is update. I can't update because I get this message "The package System is broken Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.

Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f"

This a brand new fresh install, how can there be problems already!?

In terminal I've tried " apt-get install -f" and get "E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?"

Debian :: Broken Package In Squeeze - Xorg Core

Feb 7, 2010

After going from Debian Lenny to squeeze, everything was going OK, apart from 8 broken packages of which I was easily able to fix 7 of the packages. The last one is x-org core, which comes up with the error message /var/cache/apt/archives/udev_150-2_i386.deb returned an error. From all my research it indicates that an update from kernel 2.6.26-2-686 to a later version is required due to 150 udev requiring the support of the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED. My next question is where to start, do I need to add a linux-image repository in sources.list and then use the command-line or am I headed in the wrong direction.

Debian Installation :: Broken Grub Bootloader After Install On USB Flash Drive

Nov 11, 2015

I have an issue after the installation of debian 8.2 on an usb flash drive:

I had debian 8.2 and windows 8.1 running on a single SSD. Everything was fine. I wanted to install a second debian on a 32gb USB flash drive as a live system. After the installation I am not able to boot my debian (SSD) without the flash drive plugged in. I only get a grub rescue prompt. Booting windows still works. It is also possible to boot both debian systems if the USB drive is plugged in.

So it seems to me, that the debian bootloader was accidently installed to the USB flash drive and the original bootloader on the SSD does not work properly anymore. I used a netinst image from a second USB flash drive to install debian to the first USB flash drive.

Update fdisk output:

/dev/sda1 2048 2050047 2048000 1000M Windows recovery environment
/dev/sda2 2050048 2582527 532480 260M EFI System

Debian Installation :: How Long Takes Rebuilding Official Kernel ?

Jan 2, 2011

Here are 2 questions

1.In the last line of the debian kernel handbook 4.2.2 Applying patches

It is possible to apply extra patches to the source before starting the build. First, you should apply the existing patches by running:

You will then find the patched source in the subdirectories debian/build/source_arch_none (default) and debian/build/source_arch_featureset (featuresets added).

You should apply the extra patches in the appropriate subdirectory. where can I find the "extra patchies" and how to do?

2.Even though More than 8 hours have passed, 4.2.3 Building many packages

To build all possible packages for this architecture, run:

To build all architecture-dependent packages, run:

To build all architecture-independent packages, run:

The 1st command still working. what is the all possible packages? and what I am doing?

I am just trying to rebuild debian linux kernel 2.6.26-2, Did I misunderstand?

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken Package Managment

Apr 19, 2010

I've have major problems installing cinelerra.

So, I tried to uninstall it.

I messed up at some point. Now, most apt operations result in errors.

At the moment, this is what I get when I try apt-get -f install:


Is there any way to fix this, or is my package managment permanently broken?

I just want to get to the point where apt isn't returning errors, because at some point I will want to upgrade to 10.04. This is just too risky with broken apt.

Ubuntu :: Keyserver Broken - Getting Timeout Error On Package Install

Mar 16, 2010

Is the ubuntu keyserver broken? I am trying to install a package and every time I try to install the key I get a time out error.

apt-update give me
W: GPG error: [URL karmic Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 932062C9CD30EE56

Then if I try to install the key I get this?
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys CD30EE56
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver --recv-keys CD30EE56
gpg: requesting key CD30EE56 from hkp server
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error

Can I tell ubuntu not to bother with the key. I know the package is good and safe to install. I should be the one to judge if its ok to install not ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04 - Package Command Is Broken?

May 30, 2010

I've only been using Linux for a few days (Specifically - I installed Ubuntu 9.10 last week on my laptop for learning the OS and updated to 10.04 over the weekend). I have searched Google (and found answers) for every problem now except for this new one. I apologise in advance for the length but I wanted to include my own troubleshooting as well.

When I installed and setup Ubuntu Karmic - I added my work software. Autopackage wasn't installed by default so I used terminal's package install <filename> command for the first file - and double clicked on the rest to install.With the OS change I wanted to check to see if these packages would have problems installing on 10.04 (mostly to double check).First I checked my Manage 3rd Party Software to remove them - but all my entries here are blank. (I should have quite a few actually - I've done a lot of installing and downloading in the last few days).I double clicked to re-run them but that failed saying there was a problem with the packages. So I swapped to Terminal and found the following:

When I try to install a software package:

sudo package install "SMART Product Drivers 10.package"
Reply: package: can't open config file /home/test/.mailagent
If I type in just


What's interesting, is checking my Fedora and Debian builds (I've done a lot of learning for only a few days! But I know a ton about grub 1 and 2 now) - I can't see a /home/test/.mailagent file or folder to copy either. The only thing I can think of is I have never setup an email account on my system (I've only been using it for a few days) and maybe the blank Manage 3rd Party Software tab is indicating a different problem.

SUSE / Novell :: Bluez-utils Package Does Not Seem To Be Available From The Official 11.2 Repo?

Mar 26, 2010

I used to share my internet connection for my palm via bluetooth dund on opensuse 10.1. Now I upgraded to opensuse 11.2, and have been trying to configure the same for 5 hours, without success. The problem is: dund seems to be in bluez-utils, but this package does not seem to be available from the official opensuse 11.2 repo. It is available from an unofficial one, but that is version 3.x and it conflicts with the version 4.x package of bluez. So, I either have bluez 4.x or bluez-utils 3.x, whilst I would need both.

Is there a solution for this problem, or any other way to share internet via bluetooth? (All previous howtos seem to be rendered useless with the recent "developments" of bluez, but, hey, file sending to my palm still works to some extent, so, there is much room for more "developments" until bluetooth is rendered completely unuseable).

Edit: In a changelog at a RedHat site, I found that the bluez-utils package was integrated into the bluez package, and later some tools like dund were split out into a bluez-compat package. Maybe the same happened to bluez in opensuse, too. But I have both the bluez and the bluez-compat packages installed, and hcid and sdpd are nowhere. Where did they disappear during the very important re-organization of bluez tools?

Edit2: Kind of solved. Hcid was renamed to bluetoothd, and probably the other tools and config files changed names, too. Old howto's are in fact useless, and I am about to sacrifize my next days in order to become a blootooth expert just to configure this wrecked internet sharing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flash Plugin Installer - Broken Package

Mar 14, 2010

So I tried to download adobe flashplayer from a site I'm not sure of, and it didn't install flashplugin-installer. My pc always bugs me about having a broken packet and i'm not able to download anything else because of it. I've tried for a long time now and visited like every site to try to get rid of it. It says "E: flashplugin-nonfree: Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting a removal."

When I try to delete it in system package manager. And it says I need to do this "This package is a transitional package that can safely be removed after you installed flashplugin-installer." I can't find where to install this and when I did think I found the link I try to type my password for terminal and it just says sorry, try again for some reason. I got ubuntu yesterday so I am new to this.
