In FreeBSD, you have to explicitly allow services outside the core system to start. In your /etc/rc.conf add the following line: avahi_daemon_enable="YES" (You might also need avahi_dnsconfd_enable="YES".)

You have two problems. The first one is you're trying to install mariadb RPM's that conflict with what's in CentOS/RHEL base packages. The second one is you're using the rpm command. For the first problem, since you're not on the internet with this machine, then it's not a problem. But if you do manage to have the machine on the internet, then you may have ...

Another potential thing to explore is Gentoo Prefix Which might be a viable alternative if you don't mind maintaining 2 ecosystems of Gentoo in order to provide the "alternative" package. This is essentially creating a "sub-space" for a given project scope, and then using Gentoo differently in that project scope.

The 'UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook' contains a high-level overview of package management in general, it's history and package management of RHEL, Ubuntu(/Debian), SUSE, Solaris, HP-UX and AIX. These sections are not 'in-depth' however, it is a well citable work and a good read in general for everything concerning UNIX systems and their ...

For debian/apt, I would recommend chapters 5 and 6 of the Debian Administrator's Handbook, which is distributed with a permissive license: Packaging System: Tools and Fundamental Principles Maintenance and Updates: The APT Tools

The -Ssq flag queries the sync database. Unless you have installed all the packaged in the repos, there should be things in the sync database that are not installed on your machine. To find packages that are installed locally, you need to query the local database with -Qsq.

Using dpkg, you can install multiple packages in a single operation; this will allow installation of packages with a dependency loop. Assuming you have the appropriate packages downloaded: dpkg -i libc6_*deb multiarch-support_*deb libgcc1_*deb will install libc6, multiarch-support and libgcc1.

A bug that allow a remote individual to crash the software (DoS) isn't exactly at the same level of risk as what we normally think of when we talk about "vulnerabilities". I wouldn't call this a "vulnerable" package; otherwise, you're elevating any bug that can cause the program to crash to a security "vulnerability". Also, it's not clear to me whether ...

Debian has security tracker which shows status of the CVE's in all supported releases. Here is your: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2015-8041 You can check it is fixed in version 2.3-1+deb8u3. The fix was probably backported to the older version, which prevents breaking other things with rebase to new version in stable release (point of ...

What a sad thing having a VM without internet access :( I think that you should talk to your boss and tell him that without internet access you can't properly update your linux distro, and this can lead to potential security issues. Anyway, you can browse the Arch Linux official package list from here: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/ You can download a ...

You should be able to work it out. Please follow documentation here: http://www.researchut.com/tools/apt-offline And you should only use the newer 1.7 version, from Debian Backports. I recently pushed it there. It solves a lot of bugs there were present in apt-offline from Debian Jessie. http://www.researchut.com/blog/apt-offline-debian-jessie-backports

This command creates metadata cache for downloads: sudo dnf makecache To instruct dnf to be more resource-aware and to terminate immediately if it’s too soon after the last successful makecache run we add timer to it: sudo dnf makecache timer

Looking through the documentation it doesn't look like there is an easy way to do this. With yum based distro you could do yum provides $file and in apt-get distro you could install apt-file and do apt-file $file but I cannot see an equivalent in nix-env -q.

Solution 1 Run the following command, replacing package-name with the name of the package: sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" install --reinstall package-name Solution 2 If you have .deb package then go to that directory where package is exist and run, dpkg -i --force-confmiss package-name.deb

You should mv the file out of the way: mv /etc/bluetooth/main.conf /etc/bluetooth/main.conf.old apt-get -o DPkg::options::=--force-confmiss --reinstall install bluez I don't know if you can get apt to overwrite an existing config file, that's why you should move it out of the way first.

Just to clarify: Have you checked your internet connection and firewall settings? Can you connect to the servers in question with wget or curl? Why do you build from sources? Have you tried the version you can install via apt-get? Try these before moving on.

What about apt-get update && \ apt-get upgrade && \ apt-get dist-upgrade && \ do-release-upgrade ?

Aptitude can search by archive name: aptitude search '~Ajessie' ~Aarchive (or, equivalently ?archive(archive)) is documented in the search term reference as Select packages from the given archive (such as “unstable”). If you want only the package names, then pass -F %p to format the output appropriately; by default you'll also get status and short ...

Given that the repository you're interested in is in your apt sources, you can find the information on the packages available there in the files apt downloads; for the line deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie main non-free these would be respectively /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.de.debian.org_debian_dists_jessie_main_binary-amd64_Packages ...

RPM uses cpio as its archive format. That is why we’re seeing a cpio error when trying to replace the file /usr/bin/man. You need to remove and purge man then you need to install man-pages. Open the Terminal and type the following commands: yum check-update yum update yum install man-pages yum install man

I doubt we'll ever be able to tell you where it went, but you should just be able to reinstall it using yum. yum reinstall man yum doesn't check to see if files exist when you run yum install, it just checks a database of which packages have been installed. If someone deletes all the files outside of the package manager, it won't know (you can get it to ...

Note: this is general advice for any application that needs an earlier, superseded or in other way eccentric library. The libnss3 library and the upwork application are perfectly good examples. 1. Fix your system OK, first thing, undo what you have done. If you have used any apt-pin's then remove them (for libnss3) and then do: apt-get install libnss3 ...

Hi its best to first check the repo and then do the same below may help you.. cat /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade reboot

According to debian-administration some packages are being "kept back" beacause: There we can see four packages haven't been upgraded, even though newer packages are available. This is because two new packages were introduced, and these upgrades depend upon it. To fix this you must run : apt-get dist-upgrade


4

The apt-get upgrade command you have used will only upgrade packages that need no new packages as dependencies. You can use apt-get dist-upgrade to include new packages in the set of candidates. Be aware though that using dist-upgrade will also delete packages that have been obsoleted by other, possibly newer, packages.

Unfortunately for Python 2.6, compiling from source doesn't work properly on Debian 8 (Jessie) but I found, at least for a Raspberry Pi, that I was able to use older packages from http://packages.debian.org. The order, assuming build-essentials are already in place is something like libdb, python2.6-minimal, python2.6, libpython2.6, python2-6-dev but dpkg -i ...

To remove the hold: echo libnss3-nssdb install | dpkg --set-selections or (if your aptitude works; thanks to cas): aptitude unhold libnss3-nssdb Alternatively, you can tell apt-get to ignore the holds: apt-get install -f --ignore-hold

According to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall, the best combination would be to run auto-apt ./configure to take care of the dependencies, then run make to build and install it using sudo checkinstall.

The guys from MySQL replied and declared this as a bug. The following is their message: Hi, Thanks for the report. This seems to be a bug in the new version of mysql-apt-config.

To answer your main question (Is there an attempt […]?): Surprisingly, yes. Though not relating to the languages or tools you mention. For years (at least 15) — long before Python had a stable, accepted packaging system, and long before Node was a twinkle in anyone’s eye — the FreeBSD operating system has included a system known as “BSDPAN” which wraps ...

Different distributions have not only different package names, but also different ways of breaking packages down. I think your best bet is to define dependencies in terms of files rather than in terms of packages. For example, if you need perl, record that you want /usr/bin/perl, not perl. Unfortunately, from a cursory look, pacapt doesn't seem to support ...

The algorithm is described in much detail in the apt_preferences man page. In short, apt calculates a score for every version it knows about, based on command line options, configuration, and already installed packages. It then installs the version with the highest score. You can tweak things by specifying explicit scores for explicit sources, as described ...

Your problem is clear. You are mixing two different and incompatible versions of MySQL 5.6. One of those is the Kali Linux version. Your url says kali-rolling, so this may not be a release. The other appears to be an upstream version of MySQL (from mysql.com) intended for Debian Wheezy (6.x). Note that as a Debian derivative, Kali includes the same ...
