It seems you've removed the standard sources. security.debian.org only contains security updates. It does not contain all packages available in Debian. You'll need to re-add http://ftp.xx.debian.org/ (where xx is your closest ISO two letter country code. E.g., us, jp, fr, etc.) to your sources.list. If you need help identifying your sources, see ...

This is an interesting question. Let us discuss a few ways this could be attempted. Method#1 : Manipulating location during apt-get installation Using apt-get, it would not be possible to do so. If you're installing using .deb files, again it is not possible. The reason is simply that the location for installation is hard-coded into these packages. To ...

If you have a .deb file, you can install it from the command line with the dpkg command. This is the single program that can install a deb package: all others (such as the APT family) are frontends that call dpkg under the hood. dpkg -i cdparanoia_3.10.2+debian-10.1_i386.deb You need to run this command as root, e.g. su -c 'dpkg -i …' or sudo dpkg -i …. ...

It should be fine; it might leave the tests and test components in an indeterminate state, but the actual application shouldn't be affected. That's not a hard and fast rule and I'm not familiar with guile but it would be pretty weird if the build depended on completing make check, or if the check could potentially damage something. However, if by "taking a ...

Try using checkisntall --install=no --fstrans=yes. It enables FS translation so package won't touch your actual filesystem. Thus it doesn't require root privileges to store files.

Splitting Debian packages onto different disks on a package by package basis is difficult. There's no support for that; you'd have to invoke dpkg separately on the packages that you want to install in a non-default location. Putting a directory tree onto a separate disk is easy. Fortunately for you, as far as I can tell from a quick perusal, the Sage ...

One thing to be aware, is that STIG locks down /tmp with noexec. If you already spent some time on the box, it's possible that you won't be able to execute the files out of that folder. Try another location for download/install. Also, run your installer as SUDO

Petra is based on Ubuntu 13.10, Saucy Salamander. The Saucy files were kept around on http://archive.ubuntu.com until a few days ago; they are now available on http://old-releases.ubuntu.com. If you really want to continue using Petra, you should replace "archive" with "old-releases" in your /etc/apt/sources.list configuration file. There hasn't been any ...
