Debian 7 package problems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2014
i've just installed Debian 7.4 Stable for the first time on my laptop.
I had no means of internet access like ethernet or anything, but I had a USB with b43-fwcutter and broadcom5.100.138 driver folder.
I installed fwcutter using dpkg then installed broadcom using fwcutter. My wireless seemed to just switch on following the reboot.
but i'm having trouble figuring the packages out, I also installed synaptic from a USB package, but everything I try and get say it has dependencies that can't or won't be installed.
and some packages like irssi that i searched before in synaptic, after activating all repositories, don't show anymore after I cancelled the install task, which it failed due to unavailable dependencies.
sudo apt-get install irssi just says unable to find package
I downloaded the irssi package from the debian website, but when I try and install it in dpkg, it also says dependencies I don't have, etc.
i'm really confused, i'm not sure if something
Using AptGet or Aptitude with Debian (Deb) Package (Google Chrome Example)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 16, 2011
Ever download a *.deb package only to find out you were missing a boat load of dependencies. Rather than go through the headache of resolving dependency after dependency I make a simple local repository to handle this problem. I will provide you with a solution that can work with any proper Debian package.
For this example I will be using Google Chrome. Google Chrome is not available within the Debian mirror repositories because it does not fit the Debian free standard. (Yes I know Google Chromium is available, but I need an excuse to download Google Chrome). So head over to http://www.google.com/chrome and download the latest *.debian package. in my case it was google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb.
After you have downloaded chrome it should be in your Downloads directory. Go to this directory and create a chrome sub directory.
Next you'll need some additional dpkg tools. They will assist in creating Debian mirrors.

Debian Synaptic Package Manager error: xserverxorg stripped
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2011
I have used Debian Linux for two years, most recently the seventh or so iteration of Version 5. I use the Gnome desktop and the Synaptic Package Manager, not the Update Manager, for updates because it's easier to build a log with the former.
In my most recent update, Synaptic stripped out all the xserver-xorg files—47 in all. I thought it peculiar but did not know enough to interfere. When I rebooted, the system told me I must install xserver or correct GDM configuration and restart.
Have I been hacked? Am I being tested by the Linux Illuminati? Or does it have something to do with the warning message I received at the end of the update-upgrade, attachedDebian_error_msg.png? And how do I go about reinstalling xserver? With Aptitude? I have tried running apt-get -f install, to no effect.
Thanks for any assistance.
Installing Debian Unstable package in Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2011
How can I install a particular unstable package of Debian in Ubuntu. The issue seems to be of authentication keys.
I have installed Ubuntu in order to test and install my Umax Astra 4100 scanner, and I did not want to use the Unstable sid flavour of Debian. I have stable Lenny and it works fine.
vlc, debian etch package?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 22, 2006
Does anyone know where I can get VLC for Debian etch. It seems to have been removed from etch/testing, it still remians in unstable and stable though. The VLC site only has repositories offering it for unstable and stable. If I use one built for unstable I need to use alot of library packages from unstable, which II am reluctant to do. The marrilat repository does not have it either.
So does anyone know where I can get it from?
thanks in advance
Unable to find 915resolution package in aptget
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2010
Hi, I've enable the universe deb in /etc/apt/sources.list yet i still can't find 915resolution. However I've manage to download the source and make install which result in /usr/sbin/915resolution, but when I type 915resolution -l no such command was found. Why?
Downloading All Debian Sarge Package Files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 22, 2005
For awhile I was looking for some bundled CD/DVDs that contained the main, contrib and non-free packages for Debian Sarge 3.1 r0a, but I can't find any, and no one seems to know any either. So I decided to download them one package at a time from the us dot debian dot org (i have less than 5 posts so I cant post url). But I don't want to download them all one at a time from ftp or something...
Is there any way I can download every single .deb package all in one step? I don't care how I do it, I just want the package files.
I want the 'i386' & 'all' packages so I can add them to my personal server. I run a personal server that my apt-get can download the packages from, but I set it up from the packages I have from my 14 cd set which does not contain all the contrib, and none of the non-free packages.
I looked at there site and ftp to see how I can download them all at once using a wildcard * or something, but all the types and distros are mixed in the pool/ dir.
