Later version of library don't satisfy dependency
location: linux.com - date: November 30, 2010
(I had to say "don't" because "doesn't" didn't fit in the subject line)
I'm trying to install the Amazon MP3 downloader.
They're a bit behind -- they have a downloader available for "Ubuntu 9.04"
I downloaded it and tried to install -- but it says there's a dependency that can't be resolved:
Dependency is not satisfiable: libboost-filesystem1.34.1
I installed libboost (and a bunch of other sub-items in the Boost library) using the Ubuntu Software Center, but the version of Libboost is higher now than it was in April of 2009 (surprise!)
Why doesn't a NEWER version satisfy the dependency? Is there a way to override it?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Firefox version in Penta OS will not retain your saved bookmarks.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 2, 2009
I installed the Penta OS version of Ubuntu and the version of Firefox that came with it would not retain my bookmarks on restarting Firefox.
My solution was to 'apt-get uninstall Firefox.
Penta OS would not let me install the latest version of Firefox with an incompatability notice.
So I installed one using the Package Manager called Firefox 2.
Now my bookmarks are retained.

Problem after updating Ubuntu 10.04 with GNU GRUB version 1.981ubuntu10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 10, 2011
Dear follow members of Linux Question,
I have a problem with a triple system. Let me begin with some basic information.
IBM X30 model 2672-GGC
Intel Pentium III CPU 1,2 GHz
1 GB RAM SDRAM
The operating system (in the order I installed them):
GNU Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
The problem come after I updated Linux. This is the text:
“GNU GRUB version 1.98-1ubuntu10
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
Before I updated the Linux OS, I could boot into XP or 7 or Linux. I would entered the GRUB, with the choose of booting Linux or booting into Windows booter, where I can chose between XP or 7.
Now, I don't think this is a new problem. I just can't find a good search-string for finding my answer.
My question is not so much how to solve this problem rather then how do I make a good searc
Why isn't there a static, compiled version of Python?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 23, 2012
A.k.a why are all easy to learn languages with a nice syntax (Python, Ruby etc.) interpreted? Why aren't there compiled versions of Python and/or Ruby? Why isn't there a language which combines easy to learn, easy to read and fun to program in with effiency and performance? I have read about D, but D still features some of the ugly parts of C++ (for example the way you have to add a variable in a text string) and it misses a lot of libraries. For example the D-binding for GTK (GTKD) is still at GTK version 2.24...
[SOLVED] Lubuntu version of a device manager?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 18, 2012
"Device Manager," a GUI thingy that spits out info about devices on the system. For instance, if I wanted to know the model of an installed SATA drive and I suspected it was probably in a vendor device string. Looks like Ubuntu in general had something called gnome-device-manager but it was dropped in 12.04. What do people do now, and what do Lubuntu people do specifically (typically) ? Much web searching and Synaptic searching yielded nothing.
how do i choose the version i need
location: linux.com - date: July 5, 2009
First I have never used Linux. I have been wanting to try it but couldn't down my pc to try. I have a older laptop that I want to try it on. It is a Gateway SOLO Pro 9300 PIII 450 with 288 ram 6 gig HD.
The version must run Open Office, Gimp (or similar photo program), be WiFI compatible, and not be hard to learn (don't have a lot of time to spend studying). I would be nice to have a windows emulator to run some windows apps and games.
