Slackware :: Download And Install The Individual Updated Packages?

Jan 19, 2011

If this is correct, how do you know if there updates available?

Do you need to down load and install the individual updated packages?

Sorry for this but I think that I am confused, or worse, not.

Slackware :: Keep 3rd Party Packages Updated?

Feb 27, 2011

I am using SBOpkg, but for the ~30 3rd party packages I have most of the slackbuilds are already out of date, and I don't expect they will be updated when security issues or whatever arise.

So is the only solution to subscribe to the individual mailing list for each piece of software, or is there a more automatic way?

Slackware :: Updated The Packages Installed Via Sbopkg?

Jul 18, 2011

I am really enjoying recently slackware. Using slackpkg and sbopkg it is so easy to keep slackware running current. Sometimes I feel like a master of Linux, which is absolutely no true. Apart of some objectives I have regarding slackware's philosophy, I have this question please. I have about 8 packages installed via sbopkg. my question.

1)Is there a way to keep these packages updated via a program? (If not I guess I am obliged to check manually for each of them.) 2) Also, sometimes when we build a package via sbopkg it is necessary to build other packages. Is there an option to install via sbopkg and the package and its dependencies required through just one command?

Fedora :: Installing Individual KDE Packages?

May 3, 2010

Just installed Fedora 12. After installing a new distro, I usually remove the individual programs that I have no use for or interest in. In Fedora, I've noticed that, for KDE at least, I can't remove just one program I have to remove the whole "group" of programs. For example, I might want only one game on my system and remove the rest but KPackageKit only allows to me to remove KDE Games (all of them) instead of just the programs I have no interest in. This is not the same as other distros I have tried. Is there a way around this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Way To Get All Packages Without Downloading Each Individual Ones?

Dec 26, 2010

I just installed ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my Acer Aspire 5745. The installation was successful. However, I found that my internet is not working. Later I realised that there are no ethernet drivers. The one that I need is Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet controller(NDIS 6.20). My wireless is also not working. This one is a Broadcom 802.11n Network adapter.On googling, I found this thread : URL...

To install the driver first, I had to do build-essential and headers-generic. Since I have a desktop, i thought of manually downloading the packages on my desktop and then transferring it to the acer. But i came across many dependencies for build-essential, that is, I first had to install something else before build-essential. The dependencies led me to further dependencies and so on. Is there any way for me to get all the packages without downloading each individual ones?

General :: Download Packages With Apt But Don't Install Them?

Feb 22, 2010

I'm running a Knoppix Live CD, and I want to install ClamAV. What I'd really like is to download all the relevant packages and save them onto a USB pen, and then I can install it easily whenever I run the Live CD anywhere and update the definitions at my leisure without having to connect to the internet or go through remodelling Knoppix. I'm not entirely sure how to do this though, mainly because of dependencies. I would think it would be along the lines of cd'ing to the usb and running:


apt-get -d build-dep clamav-base
apt-get -d build-dep clamav

and then to install use dpkg, but I'm not sure how to get it to look for the dependencies in the same place:


dpkg -i clamav-base
dpkg -i clamav

I'm just about to go and try it, but I thought I'd ask first to get the wisdom , but also to see if anyone else does something similar and whether they think this is a good way to achieve the goal, regardless of whether this technically works.

General :: How To Download And Install Different Packages

Apr 2, 2010

Right now I am using UBUNTU Hardy Haron. I just moved from windows to linux. It is very easy to install any games or software in windows. Just double click exe, next - next and finish. I want to install some mario games in my pc (ubuntu). I have downloaded tar.bz2 of it. Extracted it and configure and install-sh both are there. I already tried by ./configure. It requires g++, cpp several packages. Now my question comes. What are those packages? How to find out them? How to install them? Is there any other easy way for installation? What are different type of compilers over here?

Fedora :: Download And Install Packages At Same Time?

Aug 28, 2010

I was wondering if there is a possibility to configure yum in such way that it would download and install packages at the same time?What i mean is that after downloading certain package it continues to download the next one but at the same time it is installing the one it has already downloaded? Is it possible in fedora? I remeber back when i was using openSUSE 11.2 that the behaviour of the installer was configurable and would let users to choose if they want to download all packages first and then install them or download a package, keep downloading next ones but install the already downloaded ones .

Fedora :: Old Fc12 Packages Still On Updated Machine?

Jul 15, 2010

I did my update back when F13 was first out. A lot of the F12 packages are still on the machine. Should I be concerned. My latest thing was dealing with the Kmod-Nvidia packages left behind from F12. Someone suggested removing them and once I did my updater did its job perfectly.

So, the question is do I need to remove all the F12 packages or should I wait until there is another conflict? Secondly, if I should remove them, is it a search and destroy mission or can I simply nuke them all in one grouping?

Ubuntu Installation :: Packages Marked As Updated Actually Not Installed

May 8, 2011

I did a clean install of 11.04 this morning. Upon logging in, Update Manager appeared, telling me there were 67 packages to upgrade. I obliged, and the update progress window appeared, as usual. At this point I realized it was not a convenient time to install the updates. No progress had yet been made; Update Manager had not downloaded anything, the progress bar had not moved, and the status was "waiting". I canceled the update and closed Update manager. However, upon running it again, it thinks that it successfully installed all the packages. In the "Ubuntu Software Center" Update history, it shows all those packages as having been updated with a timestamp of when I canceled the update. Apt-get and aptitude will not update the packages either. It seems like the packages have been marked as updated even though no update was installed. How can I rectify this problem and get the package managers to actually install the updates?

Slackware :: How Did Users Install New Packages And Their Libraries

May 28, 2011

I'm reading the 3rd official handbook in beta version and I learn that the automated tool "slackpkg" exists only since Slackware 12.1.Before that, how did users install new packages and their libraries ? Did they search each package with their web browsers and then install manually? For me, it seems tedious because I usually work with distributions like Fedora, Debian which use an online package management.Is there another way to download it from console and without web browser?

Slackware :: Unable To Upgrade Existing Packages Or Install New Ones?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a brand new Slackware 13.1 x64 installation, and I'm having problems with slapt-get.

I'm unable to upgrade existing packages or install new ones. The output in terminal is:

bash-4.1# slapt-get -i tar
Reading Package Lists... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:


Worth mentioning also, I managed to install Gnome from [URL] without any problems immediately prior to this error message starting to appear.

I've been using Debian and Ubuntu derivatives for the last couple of years, so I'm comfortable using the terminal and possibly doing some more advanced stuff.
