Debian/Lenny packages under Ubuntu/Intrepid?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2008
Has anyone ever mixed Debian/Ubuntu packages before? Is it asking for problems to go mixing the two Distros in my /etc/apt/sources.list ?
For example, I'd like to use the Debian/Lenny kernel under Intrepid to see if it solves my problem with acpi-cpufreq.ko (described here).
For php5apc on debian, where is the admin/stats view?

I installed php5-apc on debian 6.0.4. I don't think the package includes apc.php, which is the admin view...?
newsforge article :Debian: Where we should go from here
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2005
newsforge has this interesting article :
Debian sarge has finally been released -- now what? If you ask me (and you didn't, but I'm going to tell you anyway), Debian should have two overarching priorities for the next release: 1. putting a timed release cycle in place, so what happened with sarge never happens again; and 2. keeping the growing family of Debian derivatives united around a common core -- namely, Debian itself. What's at stake? If we don't do something about both of these problems, actual and potential, Debian will be irrelevant by the time etch is out.
I agree with the time based release cycle.
I don't know much about LSB ...... I assume he's right.
about the common core ... it's great if every package in debian also works in ubuntu and vice versa ..... but this only makes sense IMO if the release cycle of debian is not too long ..... maybe 12 months.

debian apt packages hash sum mismatch
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 23, 2015
From the Debian command line, I'm getting a hash sum mismatch after executing aptitude update; aptitude upgrade. Below is the command line output. I've tried an aptitude clean, but this does not seem to help. I've also done a few google searches, but nothing seems to help. I've been getting the mismatch error for a few days.
Any help is appreciated.

Is it wise to use Debian (.deb) packages to distribute our software to production servers?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 13, 2011
We have various programs and scripts that we create that we need to deploy on production Ubuntu servers after testing. We are considering packaging our software as Debian (.deb) files and using something like apt-get or aptitude to install the software.
This is straightforward, but it is not clear to me how one would rollback or uninstall new versions that prove undesirable. An obvious choice is apt-get remove new-pkg followed by apt-get install old-pkg, but is that the right approach?
Are there special rules to follow (or things to avoid) in postinst, prerm, or postrm to help make things go smoothly?
Note that all our software and servers are private, and we have complete control over everything, if that helps.
[SOLVED] debian where is the build directory in /lib/modules?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 26, 2014
I just installed a debian box (running on qemu... don't have much installed as a matter of fact).
I'm trying to compile the sbull driver but I find there's no build directory inside /lib/mudules:
Debian/RPM packages for both i386 and amd64
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 11, 2012
I'm trying to package a Java application that depends on a JNI library. I've compiled two separate versions of that library for both i386 and amd64 architectures and placed them into the following directories:
The application will be started by a shell script that checks which arch it's running on and switch to the right JNI library path.
Everything works so far.
Now I want to create one .deb package for this software. I set the "Architecture:" from DEBIAN/control to "all" because I cannot use both i386 and amd64. This workaround allows me to create a package that works as expected.
Now I try to convert this package into RPM one using alien, i.e.
sudo alien -r xxxxJavaApp.deb
The conversion fails with an error saying that there are architecture-dependent files in a "noarch" package.
Is there a possibility to create ONE debian package for both i386 and amd64 that can be converted to RPM using "alien"? If yes, how can that be done?
How new are Debian Testing packages?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 6, 2008
The title says it all, really. Debian looks nice (Arch utterly kicked my butt, stuff randomly broke during post-install) and constantly updating packages would be excellent, but it's less stable then Ubuntu, so I need real improvements to justify. New packages would really send me over.
Debian vs. Ubuntu Packages
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 11, 2010
I am trying to figure out which package I should install for Wordpress because I want a multi-user site and this is no longer supported under Wordpress-Mu, but is now supported under Wordpress version 3 (reference)
Wordpress-Mu is an Ubuntu package available via apt-get through the universe repository (Wordpress-Mu 2.9). I found an unstable Debian package for Wordpress 3.0 that supports multi-user sites (and will continued to be supported) here (http://packages.debian.org/unstable/web/wordpress).
So I'm wondering a few things. First, are Debian packages completely compatible with Ubuntu, or are there differences that may complicate things? I know Ubuntu packages are Debian packages (I think), but I think this is a valid question. (Maybe move to absolute beginners?) Second, besides downloading Wordpress 3.0 from the site above, is there a repository I can get it from, maybe an Ubuntu repository? I'm thinking if there are some small differences to improve performance on Ubuntu vs. some
