Ubuntu Installation :: Coexisting Packages And Compiled-from-source?

May 20, 2010

I have recently installed a dev branch of Postfix on my box (jaunty), in order to access some new features. This requires that I do not use any of the postfix-related packages in the repos, I have to set this all up manually.

What is the best method for me to manage this system moving forward? Do I need to prevent the repo's postfix package (or anything depending on it, like postfix-mysql, postfix-dovecot etc.) from ever being installed accidentally? Is there anything else I need to worry about? How do you folks generally manage having compiled, customized versions of software that exists in the repos on your systems?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded From 11.2 To 11.4 - Switching Systems Packages To PACKMAN Packages

Aug 31, 2011

I just upgraded from 11.2 to 11.4 and the installation/upgrade worked just perfect. I than followed the instructions in the "New User How To/FAQ", "Multimedia and restricted format" post. I was following the instruction in the 11.4 section. I added the additional repositories as explained. I then was on the section where it talks about going into software management and selecting the "Packman" repository and clicking to "switch systems packages" to the versions in this repository (packman). I than click this link and the "warning" screen appears and I am present with conflict resolution after conflict resolution dialog. It just seems that there are some many conflicts, it just seems wrong and I canceled.

The installation/upgrade appears to have worked just fine. My mail is there, audio and dvd play back worked the first try after the upgrade. I am not clear if this is what I should expect or their is something wrong or if I even need to complete this step for a successfully installation.

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade Leftover Packages - 176 F13 Packages Remaining

Nov 17, 2010

I recently upgraded from F13 to F14 using "preupgrade". This is the first time I've used preupgrade. So far, F14 is running OK. There are some leftovers from F13 and I'm wondering if this is correct.

Q1: There are 176 F13 packages remaining. [alfrugal@localhost Documents]$ rpm -qa | grep fc13 | wc -l 176 Is this OK? FWIW, after the upgrade, I ran "package-cleanup --orphans" as recommended by the "preupgrade" page on the Fedora Project wiki.

Q2: Also, my GRUB menu was correctly updated for F14, but it still contains the three entries it had for F13. Is it normal for the preupgrade process to require the user to clean up the obsolete entries from the GRUB menu?

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.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Installing Packages From DVD Source

May 16, 2010

OS: Ubuntu 10.04.
When I try to install some packages by aptitude, I see this:
Before it, I made it (sudo apt-cdrom add):
And it (sudo apt-get update):

My dvd-disk is not broken - md5 checksum is right. In sources.list I have only cdrom source, without any network repositories. When I install one package (for example pptp-linux) which don't use any depending, it work good, but when I have some group of packages - installed only first package from this group, you can see this in a first image, marked by yellow color and set to 16 percent.

Debian :: Building Packages Using A Git Repo As The Source?

Jan 21, 2011

I would like to create some packages for programs that use the Git software to manage the source, I want to do this directly using the source code in the Git repo as the source code form the package. Does anyone have any hints or directions on how to do this? I been looking round the web for information about this, but all I seem to find is for about storing and build Debian packages from git, this is not what I want to do as these packages are for personal use and I have no need for this.

Networking :: Source Routed Packages - IP Rules?

May 19, 2010

I am building a router and I wonder if I have some rules like this and
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/accept_source_route is 0 will it work.

echo 1000 TEST >> /etc/iproute2/rt_tables
iptables -A PREROUTING -s -t mangle -j MARK --set-mark 1
ip rule add fwmark 1 table TEST
ip route add default via dev eth2 table TEST

I am not quite sure is it source routed packages at all. And also even if it works with my router will next firewall drop such packages. I have mentioned before that some things like:

General :: Binary And Source Packages Difference

Feb 4, 2011

Very often we get to hear Binary / Source when we talk about installing packages...From what I understand "Binary" refers to a natively packaged installation by a Distro wheras installation from Source would entail fetching the files, Compiling and then building the package. When we say "source" where do these codes reside? Is it diffferent for different distros or one common source like "" or similar?! I know it sounds silly but what is the origin of the source codes??

One general remedy if a package is not found is to install from source... So , source would refer to a "tar.gz" or "bz2" archive present at some location like "[URL]". In some cases , id it possible that some packageas are not available in "Source". When I tried to build a package for a particular distro , I was told that some dependencies are not un the source ...What is the meaning of this? So do all distros maintain the codes in their official repositories?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Download Source Rpm For Nvidia Packages?

Jul 6, 2011

I need a newer version of the nvidia drivers for opensuse 11.4. has version 270.41.06 available, but I found that I need the 270.41.19 version for CUDA 4.0 to run (yes I know CUDA 4.0 does not officially support 11.4, but the same 270.41.06 is available for 11.2 which CUDA 4.0 does support).

Where can I download the files x11-video-nvidiaG02-270.41.06-5.1.nosrc.rpm and nvidia-gfxG02-270.41.06-4.1.nosrc.rpm that these binaries were created from? Once I have the source rpms, I can easily update them to the newer version.

Ubuntu :: Apt/dpkg: Segregate User Application Packages From System Packages?

Dec 2, 2010

Is there a way using dpkg or apt-get to segregate user application packages from system packages? What I envision is an /apps directory structure that can be the install target for selected packages so not to "clutter" the storage areas for the system administration files/packages - maybe even with permissions set so that (a GROUP of) users could install packages on an Ubuntu server w/o SysAdmin guidance. This could also allow 1)system upgrades with or w/o including these packages, and 2)the sharing of /apps (via NFS) among common Ubuntu systems. Is this doable using the dpkg or apt maintenance tools?
