Debian :: Possible To Install Non .deb Package Through Standard Procedure

Jun 24, 2010

Just wonder is it possible to install non .deb package through the standard procedure of make config etc in Debian, or better not even attempt it.I need to use several engineering, mathematics packages, Matlab, Maple and Ansys,I have been told to use Fedora, but I would prefer to use Debian, as all my computers run on Debian and its stability etc is well known, not to mention the nice people in the forum, Bugs, Evil etc, well known icons.

Debian :: Omit Standard System Packages?

Mar 1, 2011

During the installer specifically in 'tasksel', I'm given a few options. I generally de-select every possible option but what exactly is under the package group name 'Standard System'?ScreenshotObviously when I de-select 'Standard System', basically my installation of 'netinst' is almost immediately completed and I'm asked to reboot. How can I see or find out what exactly am I omitting from the system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Start With Basic System And Add Manually Each And Every Package

Feb 15, 2011

I've been playing around with various distributions including Arch Linux, openSuse, and Ubuntu with it's derivatives. So far, I feel that Ubuntu flows the best out of them all, offering the best mix of user-friendliness, eye-candy, and performance. HOWEVER, I really like doing things from the ground up and like having complete control over what I am using/spending resources on. OpenSuse was very attractive to me because of it's [URL]... which allows you to start with a basic system and add, manually, each and every package you want so you get exactly what you want. Does Ubuntu offer any system like this? Or, alternately, is there a "barebone" download in which you get basically a command line with networking and can apt-get all of the packages you want?

Debian Installation :: System Hangup, After Installation?

Sep 9, 2011

I installed Debian 6, on my workstation again, after a long long time.The installation worked fine for me, but after, the first reboot, I could see some lines of booting code and suddenly, some lines after |udev|, my screen got signal disconnect and my computer hang up itself.I tried my harddisk on another workstation, same problem here. On my first workstation there is a HD 4xxx inside and on the other workstation i think it is was a Radeon card 9000.I got the same problem with: Arch Linux. But openBSD works fine on this workstations.Do you got some clues for my problems? I also could not start the boot cd of archlinux some times due to this problem. Sounds strange to me.

Debian :: Software - Installation Procedure Or A Package

Dec 16, 2010

With Ubuntu i used some software which only had an installation procedure or a package for ubuntu. Program's such as Ailerus or Usenet Resource Downloader. What i would like to is this: Since Ubuntu is Debian-based, is it possible that software, intended for Ubuntu, can also be installed under Debian? Or is there a slight difference in structure between debian and ubuntu that makes it almost impossible to add software, intended for Ubuntu, under Debian?

Debian :: Changing Features Of A Package After Installation?

Sep 7, 2011

I was recently pushed back towards linux after spending nearly a decade in a windows only environment and I'm finding myself struggling. The reason for the change is that we purchased Kaspersky and the mail gateway is only available under linux. They advised Debian and Exim.

The crux of the problem is that I have a working debian server running with exim4 and kaspersky to act as a gateway mail server but it's not checking inbound mail against the internal servers address list. For this I need to add ldap support to the exim package but I'm not sure how to do this - it seems silly that I should have to start over at this stage.

Full details:= I didn't have too much trouble installing and configuring a debian 64bit server for our network, adding exim4 and getting it all set up to work, then several weeks of hot fix releases and "oh, it shouldn't do that" passed as we attempted to get the Kaspersky software operating properly. During that time I learned that the kaspersky software does not provide a function to check inbound emails against the internal server. Previously we did this with an LDAP lookup under the Sophos Puremessage software that Kaspersky replaced. Without this function the MTA sends out a lot of backscatter that results in the server being put on blocklists and that effects business. Kaspersky tell me this is something I need to set the MTA software (exim4) to do so I've looked that up and it appears that step 1 is to install exim with ldap support... but I've already installed and configured exim without ldap support. So I'm not sure if I have to start over by removing exim, install over the top or what. Also if I do add ldap support or install exim-heavy over what I have will I need to reconfigure everything I've done so far?

as I said, it's been 10 years since I used linux and even then it was fairly basic sendmail and apache stuff.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Create Debian Package

Jan 18, 2010

Every time i start with a new installation, i have to download all the useful software once again...

i think it would be simple and easy-to-use if these software could be bundled into debian packages which can be installed just by clicking (like in windows)...

Is there any website where I can find debian packages for important software? Or can I create them myself...

Debian :: Debugging Package Installation Failure ?

May 12, 2010

I installed a packge redmine apt-get install redmine It went without any error. But I found later that it was not working. Another package I installed was red5 during installation it says it can not start red5-server. How can I debug the package installations. If there would have been some script I would have set some thing like set -vmx in it.

As an example while installing red5 I got a message to issue the following


See [url] for more information about dependency based boot sequencing. To reattempt the migration process run 'dpkg-reconfigure sysv-rc'. Even then it failed.

Debian Installation :: Package Updater Fails After Update To V8.0

Apr 27, 2015

After Updating to version 8.0 today...

Package Updater GUI is Failing with the message:

No updates are available
No network connection was detected.

I did updates almost daily on wheezy

Todays updates [via the Pkg Updater GUI] were over 300 meg.
After the updates and reboot
System was showing version 8.0 in the GUI desktop and using 'cat /etc/debian_version'

From terminal I did ...

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

The dist-upgrade was over 40 minute and ~ 500meg

Things seemed to go well.

I updated sources.list with apt-spy.

[In order to trouble-shoot: I subsequently commented-out the apt-spy sources and found some generic sources on internet]

# sources.list generated by apt-spy v3.2.2
# Generated using:


apt-get and Synaptic GUI both work.

I did/reviewed some settings in the Synaptic GUI I imported two v8 signing keys into Synaptic from [URL]

Package Updater GUI is Failing with the message: No updates are available No network connection was detected.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading One Particular Package From Jessie To Stretch

Jan 8, 2016

I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.

I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:

Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch  install gnumeric
Reading package lists... Done
E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:


What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.

Debian Installation :: How To Remove Half-installed Package

Jun 30, 2010

Recently tried to install a new Wine package, but the install failed, so I removed it and reinstalled the old one. That installation also failed, and now the package is in a half-installed state and can neither be installed nor removed. I'd be most grateful for some help - I miss my Wine!

# apt-get install 0.9.47~winehq0~debian~4.0-1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: The package wine needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
# apt-get remove 0.9.47~winehq0~debian~4.0-1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: The package wine needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

What does it mean by "an archive", and where can I find one?

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Install - Not Meta-package

Apr 3, 2011

I was using Lenny until now, and I liked it very much. Now I've seen that squeeze is finally released, so I decided to make a fresh install of squeeze, as I made some mistakes while installing lenny, like downloading kde meta-package (full of useless programs), small root partition etc...Now, I want to install Squeeze with KDE, but not the meta-package, just the required programs in order to run the GUI, and then I want to select which programs to install by myself... How can I do that?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation From Standard Iso File?

Jun 21, 2010

I have created virtual cd (using damoen tools) for opensuse 11.2 installation from standard iso file and that installed installer for opensuse in my C drive and asked me to restart. After I restarted it gave me two options during boot, vista and opensuse 11.2 installer. I tried installing opensuse 11.2 from boot option and it asked me for language>country>installation. From the installation window which gave three options, I selected installation option and after preparing system for installation it asked me about sda location....I had separate partition which I selected and after that it is asking me for source which I don�t know what it is. I tried few things but no success and then tried to get in to vista but unfortunately it is not booting in vista as well and takes me though the same process explained above.

So both my boot options are trying to install opensuse 11.2 and stops at provide source window. So in a nutshell I am stuck and not able to use my system. For your information I don�t have vista installation cd so I can�t repair vista.

Debian Installation :: Dpkg-scanpackages Fails When Package Limit Exceeded

Nov 2, 2015

After receiving no response either here or on IRC, I copied 80 package files to a temporary directory and ran dpkg-scanpackages . /dev/null > Packages with the expected result. The curious part is the delay when output redirection is not used: nothing appears until the script completes, when the result is dumped to the screen. It therefore appears that there is an upper limit to the number of packages that the script can handle, somewhere between 80 and 42,474.

Is this an undocumented feature, or just a peculiarity of my system?

I'm new to Debian and wanting to set up a local repository on my work drive. After following instructions online and copying all packages (~43,000) from the DVD set into /work/Debian/8.2/packages/ I ran dpkg-scan-packages as instructed:

Code: Select all# dpkg-scan-packages . /dev/null | gzip -9c > Packages.gz

This produced an empty file. I then ran dpkg-scanpackages with no output redirection expecting to see a flood of text on the screen, but all I got were error messages suggesting that it can see the .deb packages but is not parsing them:

Code: Select allroot@qbx:~# dpkg-scanpackages /work/Debian/8.2/packages
dpkg-deb: error: invalid character ' ' in archive '/work/Debian/8.2/packages/libshhopt1_1.1.7-3_i386.deb' member 'debian-binary' size
dpkg-scanpackages: error: couldn't parse control information from /work/Debian/8.2/packages/libshhopt1_1.1.7-3_i386.deb

[Code] ....

This all seems in accord with the man page, and it's so simple I'm wondering what I'm missing.
