I don't think you've properly compiled and installed Vim, that's why it's still attempting to read from the default runtime path. As you have to install Vim locally to your home directory, that is usually done via ./configure --prefix=$HOME/.local [...other configure options here...] make && make install See src/INSTALL (chapter Installation ...

To figure out if a package (Tor here) is installed by user, run this in terminal: apt-cache show tor | grep Priority if the priority was optional‍‍‍‍‍, The package was installed by user, If was standard (important on Debian ) it's a default installed package. Now to find out when the package is installed, check the apt logs in /var/log/apt/history.log. ...

Gimp doesn't provide compiled .deb or .rpm files, so if you want it and don't want to compile source code check the repositories of your distribution or go to sites as: http://rpmfind.net/ http://rpm.pbone.net Search for gimp, you will see a list of downloadable rpm files ordered by version, architecture and OS version.

If you downloaded the RPM then it will be in ~/downloads, but if you installed it with cURL or wget then it is in the directory you downloaded it to. More information on the RPM's location and/or where you got it from would be helpful. If you do not know where it is, type find / -name gimp-2.8.14-x86_64.rpm into the terminal. As for possibility, yes you can ...

The simplest answer would be to use dpkg by running dpkg -i packagename.deb. You could then uninstall it by running dpkg -r packagename.deb. apt-get is a higher level installer based off of dpkg, and as such you could apt-get install packagename.deb. It would be beneficial for add it to your apt-get archives directory (/var/cache/apt/archives) so you could ...

Yes, as long as you have the SSH keys and such in a specific defined SSH directory. It would be wise if you declared the path using export to the SSH binaries and keys directory. In other words, you just have to have the daemon's startup script mapped to the boot file and the SSH path declared in the .bashrc file.

I had run into the same issue while following blogged instructions. It turned out, the command I was using was incorrectly formatted. My mistake, pkg_add -lv software the tags after - should have been an uppercase I and a lower case v instead of a lowercase L and a lowercase v. This occurred through a misinterpretation with the fonts used on the instructions ...

./configure runs a script named "configure" in the current directory. make runs the program "make" in your path, and make install runs it again with the argument "install". Generally, the "configure" script was generated by a collection of programs known as "autotools". It checks your system and tries to generate a makefile (see below) appropriate for your ...

While I agree that you may want to consider upgrading to a newer release, I grant that this is not always an option. You can compile from source (assuming you have a working older version of gcc), which may be found from the GNU project here.

Fedora 14 is ancient release. It is not supported for long time. Please get current version of Fedora, it is Fedora 21. Then your problems should be gone.

First of all: this is your computer, so you can do anything with it that you want, so the commands to move it there are at the end of this rant. ;-) However, the application is exactly where it's supposed to be according to the File Hierarchy Standard and other applications that depend on this one will expect it there. And it doesn't matter whether you're ...

But it was a totally different installation and I got confused. If you compile from source from the official latest release, there can be some or significant changes in the software as I understand it. Here is some info on software being delayed in getting to the repositories. Excerpt: Update Delays One thing new Linux users often notice with ...

libbpg depends on version 1.6 of the PNG library, which you cannot install with apt-get on Linux Mint 17. This library is incompatible with libpng12 and needs to be installed from source (I used version 1.6.16) The additional complication is that if you install PNG 1.6 the make of libbpg still uses libpng12-dev even if you configure PNG 1.6 with configure ...

There is no need to have a separate home partition at all. The only problem with this configuration, is that if you ever need to reinstall from scratch, then you will need to backup your /home, as the root partition is usually formated again on new install. If you have your /home separated, you can safely reinstall keeping your data.

The installation of a Unix program consists of roughly two parts. 1) Putting the files in suitable locations 2) Setting file permissions and ownerships suitably With regard to the first, the Linux File Hierarchy Standard is relevant. This is Linux specific, but largely follows historically codified Unix rules. Specifically, binaries intended to be run by ...

Installing a program is done by the operating system's package manager. So depends on the OS (Linux is the kernel). E.g. Debian is a Gnu/Linux, it used apt to install deb packages. Redhat, suse, Freebsd. etc use different package managers. In essence they will copy files to where they need to be (somewhere that normal users can not change), and set ...

It could be that stardict-2.0.0-pre2.tar.gz and stardict-2.0.0.tar.gz are just not functional. I attempted to install both on CentOS 5.6 without success. The INSTALL and README are indeed empty on the pre2.tar.gz version. Unless you specifically need this version I recommend installing stardict-2.4.8.tar.bz2 instead. wget ...

You need to use clang++. clang is the C compiler, clang++ is the C++ compiler. Like gcc. I think these are basically the same compiler under the hood, but (again like gcc), clang++ links against the C++ libraries by default, while clang doesn't. Hence the linker errors.

I'm betting the program you're trying to run requires a newer version of GLIBC than is current installed on your system. Unfortunately, because it is GLIBC, there is no way to get a newer version without having root access and without affecting the entire system. Check the program's upstream site, make sure it's supported on RHEL 6.

As it turns out, the problem was the same as here: I still had to unpack the *.pack files from the lib and jre/lib folders in the java installation. unpack200, the program used to unpack *.pack files to .jar files isn't available in busybox, but it's shipped with java.

I found myself putting together pieces from the different answers, particularly Braiam's and muru's. In the end, I ended up with this oneliner, which gets me close enough to a start that I should be able to figure out the rest: dpkg-query --showformat '${Package}\n' -W | \ while read package; do \ apt-cache policy $package | grep -q wheezy/non-free ...

I guess my question is how do I install VirtualBox so that it uses the kmod with the same kernel Fedora 21 is using? There is an alternative solution to your problem, it would be to use akmod-VirtualBox. How & why to use rpmfusion's "automagical" source akmods instead of regular binary kmods (kernel modules). akmods (similar to dkms) is a ...

As of this post, Fedora just got the 3.18.6-200.fc21 kernel and I've updated to it. I'm now able to install the VirtualBox package from RPM Fusion.

There are two options but you may encounter additional problems concerning your other packages. First one is to use updates-testing repository where required kernel exists. yum-config-manager --enable updates-testing Than you can install required packages. The second option is to install and boot with older kernel I think in your case is: ...

Well, it is not terribly difficult to work in an init feature into a shell function. For example: fn(){ echo first time called\! fn(){ echo not the first time called\! } } fn; fn; fn ...will print... first time called! not the first time called! not the first time called! You can also define shell aliases in a function, or source ...

-l is one of the options of dpkg-query, which has another option, -W (or --show). -W allows use to select an output format. You can try: dpkg-query --showformat '${Status}\t${Package}\t${Version}\t${Architecture}\t${Origin}\t${Section}\n' -W | column -ts $'\t' For example: $ dpkg-query --showformat ...

As well as apt-cache policy, described in Braiam's answer, you can use apt-show-versions and apt-forktracer. apt-show-versions by default will list all installed packages with the suite they come from, their version and whether they can be upgraded; for example afl:amd64/experimental *manually* upgradeable from 1.28b-1 to 1.36b-1 agedu:amd64/testing 9723-1 ...
