After a month of seeking, I still didn't find suitable build system that could meet the needs of our team. So I had to combine a new one from the existing components. Here they are: Gitlab (SCM server) Jenkins (CI server and build management tool) Docker (light-weighted isolated environment for builds) Git-buildpackage (very convenient tool that ...

But the name of the programs/packages each on its own line in a file, say packages.txt, and use rpm -qa |grep -iFf packages.txt Now ... the second part, with the find command seems rather silly. This is somewhat Linux-specific: Better to run (as root) ps and/or netstat -nap for any daemons and processes listening to ports. Some of these are udp only, so ...

You can use a program called yumdownloader to download the rpms in the parallel server connected to internet. yum install yum-utils yumdownloader <package_name> And in the target server, you can scp the rpms and install it using the below command. yum localinstall <rpm_name>

Be sure your java is visible in the system and your jar path is fully defined: #!/bin/sh export PATH=<your java SDK>/bin:$PATH java -jar </full/path/to/app/>myapp.jar

I'm on Debian UnStable and I have a software package that comes with Gnome.I prefer Synaptic (when using a GUI) though, as it's a mature product. I wasn't too pleased with 'software center' as it now stands.

Try running: # dpkg --configure --pending # dpkg --configure -a # apt-get -f install If that doesn't help, and you are unable to resolve further conflicts/problems on your own or get someone whos more experienced with dpkg at the helm, or just backup /etc and reinstall.

Duplicate source.list entries aren't a big problem, just a small performance hit. The message is misleading: apt-get update alone won't eliminate duplicate entries. You need to edit the source.list files: /etc/apt/sources.list and the files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d. Look for entries for the repository mentioned in the error message and remove one of the ...

I don't know of a way to do all you're asking for with aptitude or apt, but apt-src provides apt's features for source packages: apt-src update apt-src install package apt-src upgrade will respectively update the information on available packages, install package's source code, and upgrade the source code if necessary. Other options are available to ...

I would start out by manually trying the instructions here: How do I add a line to my /etc/apt/sources.list? Here's how I edited mine: $ ls /etc/apt apt.conf.d preferences preferences.d sources.list sources.list.d sources.list.save trustdb.gpg trusted.gpg trusted.gpg~ trusted.gpg.d $ vi /etc/apt/sources.list There's further information here: ...

You have an outdated environment. And I'm pretty sure you never look at /usr/ports/UPDATING do the full update of the installed software: portsnap fetch update make -C /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portmaster install clean portmaster -aftd This may take a while.

Well I have actually managed to sort of install the newest R on Linux mint now by going a bit further with your post. I forget what I did exactly at this time but it worked to upgrade. But I still cannot do what I wanted to do which is properly install bioconductor because I get a strange error message while I am installing it: /usr/bin/ld: cannot find ...

I see you are quoting my answer. Can you (a) give some details on what you tried to do (b) what happened when you did it, please? Specifically, what source did you use in /etc/apt/sources.list? As the documentation on http://cran.stat.ucla.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/ says, use deb http://<my.favorite.cran.mirror>/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/ So ...

There's no general answer. Sometimes you can find more information on a dependency in a package's description; this is more often true for "Recommends:" or "Suggests:" rather than full-blown "Depends:", to help users decide whether or not to install the weak dependency. Another source of information can be a package's changelog; that will sometimes indicate ...

The package maintainer lists the dependencies for a package when they create the specifications file. Looking at the list of what debianutils is it seems they use it to aid in the installation of the package, but yes, you would need to dig deep to find why it is a dependency. I'll bet you could find the usage of these tools in the ./configure script of the ...

The problem seemed to be that the OS on my machine was the same as the live image on the thumb drive I used to install it. When I called calamares it was attempting to reinstall the entire operating system again. The reason for the disk space issue was that calamares needed root privileges. My takeaway from this is that my distro (Maui) simply isn't quite ...

Per FHS, /opt/bin, /opt/lib, /opt/info, /opt/include, /opt/doc, and /opt/man are there for the administrator's convenience. For instance, you might have /opt/jdk and /opt/LibreOffice holding your jdk and office suite, but rather than add a new element to $PATH, ld.so.conf, etc. every time you add another package, you can just symlink the binaries to ...

I don't think its possible directly. But somehow the user got your package to install—and apparently not from your repository, since it hasn't been added yet. So the first workaround I'd suggest would be to do things the normal way: have the user add the repository (or give the user a simple shell script), then install your package as normal. This would be ...
