Debian :: Installing I386 Packages Prompts Removal Of Amd64 Packages

Apr 8, 2015

I am working on a project which targets both 32 and 64 bit architectures at the moment. My system is amd64. I added i386 architecture using this guide. However, my problem is

Code: Select allapt-get install package-name:i386

prompts the removal of currently installed packages (amd64 arch.) which is the problem.

Code: Select allReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:

[Code] ...

Some of the packages I am talking about are


Now, as of now, I want to carry out the compilation using 32 bit libraries, however, I really don't want to install 64bit version of all prerequisites each time I switch the compilation from 32 bit to 64. Is there any way to have both architectures at the same time?

Debian Multimedia :: I386 And Amd64 Proper Deb Packages Of UMPlayer

Apr 3, 2011

the mcr85+1 packages were built using qt 4.6.3, so will be squeeze-compatible. umplayer is a fork of the abandoned smplayer project which adds skinning, shoutcast stream, and minitube-like videos search, playback, and download capability to the program.


i did a pull and build from the svn repo, since that is newer than the 0.92 debs on the website and solves some videos issues. debianized sources included so one can build the program on any architecture that supports qt 4 4.6 and it's a good idea not to trust anybody's binaries off the web, so to be really safe, rebuild the program yourself if you don't know who the heck i am. update 20 april 2011: link to svn 143 builds and sources: [url] update: 25 june 2011: new pull from svn--fixes the returning control bar problem with skins and kde 4 kwin desktop effects enabled:


squeeze users should use the mcr85 packages, the mcr110 ones need qt 4.7. sources included as usual. it looks like it would be a nice addition to the debian repo...

Debian Configuration :: Find & Download I386 Packages On An Amd64 System?

Oct 30, 2010

I have a computer with internet access with amd64 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny). I have another computer with NO internet access with i386 architecture running Debian stable (Lenny).I want to download some packages for the i386 computer using the amd64 computer. So far, the only way I can see to do this is to use dpkg-architecture to temporarily change to i386 on the internet computer, run aptitude with the download-only option to retrieve the packages I need with all suitable dependencies, then switch the internet computer back over to amd64.

I can't imagine I'm the only person who ever needed to do this, and yet I've had no luck finding any advice. The method I described seems rather awkward - is there a more elegant solution?

I apologize to the membership, I realize now the absurdity of this subject. Having now studied the online repository search functions closer, I see it appears packages are automatically retrieved with all necessary dependencies. As such, it is not necessary to use apt and its various functions to do the job.

Debian :: Know What Packages Would Be Affect By Removal?

Mar 24, 2011

I did a d-u today, all went well. Then tried to install dkms, and apt came back with a list of programs it says were automatically installed by no longer required, including several libqt4 packages. I'd like to know what programs would be affected by removing each one.

Debian :: Complete Removal Of Meta-packages Possible?

May 7, 2010

I'm wondering if complete removal of meta-packages, that being the package itself AND all of its dependencies, is possible in one command of aptitude and/or apt-get. For instance, if I have the whole kde installed, and wish to remove that whole load and replace it with the smaller kdebase, can I do this in two commands (IE, "aptitude remove kde", and then followed by "aptitude install kdebase"). The preceding commands wouldn't work, because just removing the initial meta-package would not remove its dependent packages. BUT, I'm wondering if there is a way to remove a meta-package AND its dependent packages all in one command (rather than having to go through individually removing each one).

Debian Configuration :: Clearing Aptitude State - Removal Of Packages

Mar 18, 2010

I had been doing some removal of packages, and things went well, or so I thought. Now whenever I try and install any package using aptitude, some old state is lingering around and wants me to install packages that I do not want, and remove some packages that I am not sure about removing (did I actually select those to be removed??) I removed libvirt etc, and now it wants to come back? Also, like I mentioned, why remove those other four packages?

The following NEW packages will be installed:
aqemu gtkrsync libvirt-doc libvirt0 python-libvirt qemu qemu-kvm qemu-system qemu-user qemu-utils virt-top virt-viewer virtinst
The following packages will be removed:
dnsmasq-base{u} netcat-openbsd{u} python-gtk-vnc{u} python-vte{u}
0 packages upgraded, 13 newly installed, 4 to remove and 176 not upgraded.
Need to get 2,210kB/24.3MB of archives. After unpacking 72.7MB will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] ^C

Running squeeze, and enjoying it so far, apart from a broken out of the box synergy (compiled my own synergy-plus to fix that issue) and a buggy samba client.

Ubuntu Installation :: LUCID: Downloading Repositories/Packages - Get This Message " Unable To Find Expected Entry Deb-src/binary-i386/Packages In Meta-index File "?

Jun 24, 2010

I did the UPGRADE from Karmic Koala to Lucid, and everything was going well. But now I've been having problems with the UBUNTU UPDATE tool for the last 2 weeks. Every time I try to do an update check on the packages, I get the following message:Failed to fetch http:[url]....Release Unable to find expected entry deb-src/binary-i386/Packages in Meta-index file (malformed Release file?)

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I've tried changing the servers to MAIN and others, and still no way to solve it. I've also checked for other posts, but haven't found a solution yet. Here's my SOURCES LIST (gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list)# See http:[url].... for how to upgrade to # newer versions of the distribution.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Build Modules With 2.6.38-2-amd64 Packages

Apr 14, 2011

My new laptop works out of the box except for the video and the ethernet. For this, I have to use a later kernel than the Debian kernel (debian squeeze is currently 2.6.32). Upgrading to the new kernel (without moving to the testing dist itself) was pretty easy. I just installed linux-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 and linux-base from the testing distribution by manually downloading and using dpkg. After that, ethernet and video started working.

However, my virtualbox installation no longer works because the drivers do not match the kernel. I am used to this; whenever debian upgrades the kernel on me, I have to run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup". This rebuilds the drivers. This failed for me, however, because it could not find the headers. So, I installed some more packages:


Now, when I rebuild it, I get this:

# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules:.
Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules:.

Debian :: Errors Encountered While Processing AMD64 Packages

Mar 21, 2011

I have a VPS running Debian Squeeze. Today I ssh'd in to do an apt-get update and an apt-get upgrade. Some of the packages seem to install fine, however linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 gives an error. I've tried rebooting (hoping that it would indeed come back up after a reboot and it did) but nothing has helped. Here's the output from apt:

Debian :: Automatic Removal Of Kernel Headers Package When Kernel Packages Are Removed

Dec 28, 2008

As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.

For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:


Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:


So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:


I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?

Ubuntu :: Update Installed Packages List Or Force Removal Of Package?

Jul 21, 2011

I was working on my flash drive install of Ubuntu, when I squashfsed my /usr. Long story short, I some how ended up with a working /usr, but with a few packages marked as installed, but not having its components installed (emacs). When I try to remove emacs (emacs23-nox), it gives me numerous errors about files (all relating to emacs) not existing (all in /usr). Thus my questions are as follows:

1) Is there a way to force the removal without it caring about missing packages?


2) Is there a way to reload which packages are installed by checking which files exist, etc?


3) Should I just nuke and re-install?

Debian :: Cross Grading From I386 To Amd64

Jan 16, 2016

I'm using my Debian installation for a long time (~10 years) and my system is evolved to fit my tastes, usage habits and hardware setup. However, this system started on 32bit hardware and It's having some major limitations (both performance and coping with the hardware) on a 64bit system with 16GB RAM.

I've read the cross grading manuals on the network and they don't feel like firmly tested and the best ways to do it. I'm perfectly capable of anything, minimum downtime is essential since this is my primary workstation and I need it for many daily (light and heavy) tasks.

?CentOS 5 :: I386 Packages Installed On X86_64 Machine - Typical

Sep 26, 2009

When I installed CentOS on a 64 bit machine, I selected the 64 bit option. However, for some reason it installed many i386 packages - these were exact duplicates of installed x86_64 packages.Is this typical? How do I prevent this on future installs? If I left them installed, could this have caused a problem in the future? Due to my fastidious nature, I used yum extender to uncheck every duplicate i386 package and uninstalled them. This took some time. I am still not proficient with yum directly so I am wondering if there is a command to uninstall all i386 packages quickly.

Debian :: Slow At Installing Packages Within The Terminal?

May 23, 2010

I was going to try out E16 and installed it via apt-get install. It ran through the usual of retrieving the required dependencies and whatnot, but as it was "setting" everything up as Debian usually does when installing packages, it seemed to take forever, to install a measly 6 or so megabytes.

Why is this? I regularly run "apt-get autoremove", "apt-get autoclean", and "apt-get clean", as well as check for orphaned packages and residual configs in Synaptic. Also, for some reason, Synaptic finds more packages left behind than the terminal finds.

Debian :: Install An I386 Library Onto Amd64 Lenny?

There's a certain program I'm trying to run that will only work with the 32-bit version of a certain library - the 64-bit version included in the repository won't work for it. I found an i386 .deb package online (made for ubuntu but it should work with regular debian), but when I try to install it, it says incorrect architecture, use amd64 version instead.

How can I force it to accept the i386 version of this package?

Debian :: Repositories Not Installing - Broken Packages Error

I went to other repositories, e.g. Mint and Ubuntu, and with these included in my sources.list file, I was able to install the desired programs.

If the programs are listed in Debian and the dependecies as well, why would they not install?

Debian :: Installing / Removing - Packages Have Unmet Dependencies

Jun 1, 2011

I have an issue with packages. When I try to install any package then I receive error like this one below.
e.g. install Lynx:

# apt-get -f install lynx
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libperl5.10: Depends: perl-base (= 5.10.0-19lenny3) but 5.10.0-19lenny2 is to be installed
libsnmp15: Depends: libsnmp-base (>= 5.4.1~dfsg-12) but it is not going to be installed
lynx: Depends: lynx-cur (>= 2.8.7dev9-2.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

So I decided to remove libperl5.10 which apparently mess. But its not that easy, just take a look:

# apt-get --purge remove libperl5.10
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libsnmp15: Depends: libsnmp-base (>= 5.4.1~dfsg-12) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libperl5.10 (>= 5.10.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
...and now I don't know what to do ?
