Fedora Installation :: Removing Package With Dependencies?

May 9, 2010

How do most experienced Fedora users remove packages with large number of dependencies?

I know that the question is as old as yum, but still I can't find solution. There is package-cleanup tool, which supposed to do the job with "--leaves" key, but it doesn't seem to work. Right now I have F12 installed. I installed rosegarden with `yum install rosegarden`. Then I removed it with `yum remove rosegarden`. If I understand right, `package-cleanup --leaves` must show all of 12 dependencies that was installed with rosegarden, but it shows none of them (although it shows few packages). Is this a bug? For years I used Ubuntu and Debian and I was completely satisfied with apt.

Ubuntu :: Remove A Package Without Removing Dependencies

Jun 20, 2010

I need to remove libgl1-mesa-swx11, as after I installed it, it has slowed down all my graphics. However, in SPM, it says in order to remove it, I have to remove most of my system, it seems as though it's "dependencies" involve everything to do with graphics, which I was running fine and much better before. So, how do I remove this package without removing dependencies?

OpenSUSE :: Download Package Dependencies For Offline Installation?

Oct 25, 2009

is there a way to get urls of the packages that have been updated and then download them in another computer? like this feature of ubuntu HOWTO: Download package dependencies for offline installation - Ubuntu Forums

its a simple feature and its present in smart and synaptic,yet its not in yast (or i havent found it yet.

i would use smart package manager but in my home connection for checking for updates ,yast is better ( smart downloads filelist.xml.gz that is very way biger than what yast downloads (though it enables smart to show filelist of package BEFORE installing) .so at home i can check for package update with yast ,buy downloading them is very hard. (my connectioon is very bad (i live in iran) and yast mirrors are NOT the best of servers ,so yast gets interrupted in middle downloading a rpm and the whole process is waiting for me to press retry ,so i cant do updates and installs overnight.btw is there some way to tell it to retry always or a number of times automatically? )

i need the url links of rpms so i download them separately and install them.

Fedora :: Gpk Doesn't List Package Dependencies?

Jun 18, 2011

While trying to install a package using gpk-application ("Add/Remove Software" under System Tools), I accidentally checked the "Do not show this message again" checkbox, and now gpk-application does not list the package dependencies anymore.

I tried to go back to listing the dependencies, however, I could not find a way to do it. How do I revert to the default behavior, i.e., having gpk-application listing the dependencies again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Geda PCB Layout Package - Dependencies Failed?

Jun 9, 2011

I am needing to install the geda pcb layout package on my system. The one that is in the repository is a much older version, 20091103, and some projects I need to modify were developed using a newer version, 20100929, and the older one on Ubuntu will not open them. I downloaded the pcb source and ran configure and a couple of dependencies failed that I was able to correct with synaptic. But, then it complained about not having gdlib-config. Which I cannot find that in the repositories. What do I need to get?

Debian Configuration :: Aptitude Not Removing Dependencies?

Mar 25, 2011

I have had this problem repeatedly with aptitude recently. I run Debian Squeeze but in a somewhat unusual fashion - I create a custom live image using the builder on the Debian Live website and then run the live image in persistent mode off a flash drive. For all intents and purposes this has never behaved any differently from a standard Debian install and has given me a great deal of flexibility and power, for which I'm grateful.

However there's been one strange phenomenon that keeps occurring. After a certain point - not before - aptitude stops removing dependencies when I remove packages, though in the ncurses interface the option is shown as switched on (and my .aptitude/config file does not switch it off, nor does any other configuration file that I can find, though maybe I'm missing something). This occurs even in the case of dependencies which I know cannot be depended upon by any other package. e.g. the e17 package in unstable brings in libecore, libevas etc. which are depended on only by e17 as I have no other Enlightenment packages installed. But removing e17 removes only the e17 package and not the dependencies.

The other odd thing is that this does not occur at first. Aptitude works fine for a while on a clean system. At some point though it simply changes in behaviour.

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 ?

Theres a package I'm going to install that is available only in 32-bit, but I have its dependencies installed as regular 64-bit. Since I'm multilib, will the 32-bit package be able to work with the 64-bit deps?
If not, can 32-bit versions of the deps be installed side by side with the 64 bit?

Ubuntu :: Obtaining All The Dependencies For A Package?

Mar 22, 2011

So to give a little background, I'm trying to pass wireshark(with a custom plugin) through my company's build system.The build system functions inside a change root thus all the dependencies need to located somewhere inside the chroot. Wireshark has a massive dependency tree that I couldn't possibly import manually one by one.So my question is, is there a way to conveniently import all the dependency packages somewhere on your local machine. This would mean I would just import the one folder into my change root.PS: the build-system's change-root has SMART package manager installed. But the channels it comes with are local ones(very little to choose from). So an alternative solution would be import therepositories that apt-get uses into smart and then use smarto install the packages which is monumentally easier.

Slackware :: Package Manager And Dependencies ?

Aug 12, 2010

I am a long-time Debian user (I use it since Woody) and yesterday, due to an unexpected problem on my hard drive and an inexplicable lack of a current Debian cd or a possibility to perform a net install, I had to choose between either stay without computer at home or install one of the two other operating systems I happened to have on cds: Free-BDS or Slackware 13.0. Since I do not have time to learn something that I consider to be more radically different from Debian, I went for Slack.

So, first impressions:

1. Quick and smooth installation, though I got a bit over-enthusiastic when it came to select packages to install and unselected many libraries that I later realised that were necessary for various packages and I had to install them anyway.

2. Configure my wifi was surprisingly easy. I had braced myself for overly-complicated configurations to be done while I'd not have access to google, however rc.inet1.conf was very straight-forward and it provided plenty of examples to illustrate basically every possible configuration. All I had to do was to copy my wpa_supplicant.conf from my Debian backup and it worked.

3.X: For some reason I expected I'd have trouble to properly install and configure X, however my window manager was up and running in a few minutes. I copied my ~/GNUstep folder from my backup gave me the exact same X environment I had in Debian.

4. Package managing and dependencies: (I think I am correct to presume that that has to be the main complaint of most Debian users). pkgtool is very easy to use but, yeah, it does not resolve dependencies.

However, and while I installed a system way more minimalistic than any Debian system I had, I was surprised to find out that:

-Firefox had only ONE dependency

-vlc had none

-xfe, on the other hand, has some obscure dependency that I cannot figure out where to get it (libGLU).

So, a question for more experienced Slackware users: How do you get around the dependencies? Is there a quick way to find out what additional packages you will need on beforehand, or you install the package and try to run it, so to see what libs you need when it fails to start?

OpenSUSE :: PostgreSQL GUI - Keeps Package Dependencies To A Minimum

Jun 11, 2010

So short-term needing a replacement for the various tools MS traps you into to make it easy to work with SQL Server.

I'm going to be using postgreSQL, and I'm wondering what's a good strategy as far as a GUI front-end.

1. No building from source. Don't have the time.
2. Keeps package dependencies to a minimum.
3. Won't require me to use KDE. My dev machine is too old to use KDE productively.

Debian :: Changing A Package's Dependencies After It's Installed

Aug 1, 2010

I did a compile and checkinstall of a Debian package (and then deleted the temporary directory tree I compiled in), and had to redo the compile and checkinstall since I screwed up on the dependencies (I think it's item #10) on the checkinstall "menu".

Looking for a quick and dirty shortcut, I was wondering where the post-install dependencies for the packages are stored. Is it in /var/lib/dpkg/status ?

If not, where is the dependency information for installed packages stored?
