Software :: Managing Source Installed Package With APT?

Mar 30, 2011

Kubuntu ships by default with a crippled K3b that won't rip DVDs to video files. Therefore I followed the instructions here to install it from source against libdvdread-dev. Now KPackageKit is continuously bugging me about 5 updates: k3b, k3b-dbg, libk3b-dev, libk3b6, and libk3b6-extracodecs. If I let those be "updated," I just get the binary versions of the same versions, without DVD ripping capabilities. Is there a way to get DVD ripping in k3b without APT continuously wanting to "update," it away?

OpenSUSE :: Tex Live Manager Installation And Package Managing?

Feb 10, 2010

I installed Texlive from Yast2. Everything is ok, but the managing of new packages.The standard installation provides no package managing, and guides don't say very much about how to get it. I'm new in Gnu/Linux OS, such Opensuse, and I don't know quite nothing about the shell (or terminal? -sorry for my English knowledge).I'm now trying to install the package named "parallel" in Texlive. How can I do without a graphical interface? Can I get an app similar to Miktex package manager?

Slackware :: Tool For Managing Package To Format Compat32?

Sep 11, 2010

I started writing compat32pkg late April. At the begining it was only for my personal use (and for the fun), and, it was only dedicated to automate updates of 32-bit part of the 32-bit compatibility layer (AlienBob's multilib). Afterward, I improved it, I added some features and now, it provides all the necessary for managing (converting,installing,upgrading,remove) of 32-bit part of the multilib, and others packages which are part of Slackware-32 like firefox, seamonkey, jre,. As I guess it could be usefull for others, I decided to publish it. So, if you want it, you can grab it at [URL]... But before that, I guess that you want to know a bit more about it. So, let's go. The installation of compat32pkg is done as for any Slackware package, using the command installpkg :


If you want to convert packages to format compat32 only, you have to use compat32pkg in mode --convert instead of --install :


The example below will give you the list of all available packages from the selected mirror and the status of the compat32 version (installed, not installed, update) of these packages......

Debian :: Obtaining The Source Code Of A Package?

Sep 3, 2010

I want to compile geki2 from source. I tried apt-get source geki2but I getReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to find a source package for geki2I assume that /etc/apt/sources.list needs some additional entry. I run lenny.

Apart from that could someone explain to me what is the importance of files *.dsc , *.tar.gz and *.diff.gz in every package ? I assume *.tar.gz is the source. Is this independent from Debian ? I assume also that *.diff.gz is some patch you have to apply after you expand *.tar.gz in order to get a Debian specific version but how do you apply the patch ?

Fedora :: Viewing Source Code For Package?

Mar 3, 2011

I was a die hard Ubuntu user for the last 2 years and decided to use something more advanced or different. My question (after searching the crap out of Google) is how can I view the source code of Fedora? I have found many sites explaining this but it is not written in terms that are easy for me to understand. I haven't been programming for years and using advanced features in Linux so most of these sites are not explaining out and most are explaining how to build and add on to the kernel.

CentOS 5 :: Where To Put Applications Installed From Source

Apr 12, 2010

To make sure I have the latest packages installed, I no longer install anything from yum, I just compile them from source (or where source isn't available, from .rpm) directly from the application's website.

I was just wondering if there's a best practice about where to put application files that you compile yourself? Most of them seem to default to putting their files in /usr/local. What I currently do is then create symlinks from /usr/sbin, /etc/<appname>/conf, /var/log, /var/run etc. Is this messy? How should I be doing this instead?

Ubuntu Installation :: Debootstrap Can't Use Desktop CD As Package Source?

Sep 7, 2010

I'm running Karmic Desktop Live CD from a USB stick, and trying to install Ubuntu to a hard disk using debootstrap I get these errors:

$ sudo debootstrap karmic /dir file:///cdrom/


I: Retrieving Release
I: Validating Packages
I: Resolving dependencies of required packages...
I: Resolving dependencies of base packages...
W: Failure trying to run: chroot /dir mount -t proc proc /proc


I've read this bug report: [URL] basically, the discussion states that Desktop CD can not be used as package source for debootstrapping, I understand it is because of different file structure than the required for a repository, but would like to know more specific information about it, and if possible, how could I use the CD as package source for debootstrap?

General :: How To Confirm Source Was Correctly Installed

Jul 6, 2011

I've installed CFEngine from source (for those of you who aren't familiar with the product, check out the wiki page) on an AIX server. I had some issues setting it up but finally got it to gmake successfully.

Once I run gmake install I get a very short output (based on other source builds) and no errors. I figure something is fishy and I now I need to figure out a good way to find if it was correctly installed. I tried:

find / -name cfeng* 2> /dev/null

Is there something analogous to rpm -qa | grep cfengine?

Here is a copy of my output in case anyone needs: [url]
