Ubuntu package vs. debian package
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2005
A package I'm compiling has dependencies on glib-2.0.
The runtime version comes with the breezy distro, but not the dev-lib. And I can't find the dev-lib anywhere. So I figured, fine, get the source and make it. Spent many hours getting to understand dpkg* tools.
Then I found that there is a full distribution of the packages I'm looking for (runtime + dev lib) on the debian depot (http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages).
The problem though is that the debian packages use a slightly different version number schema. And so I can't match the dev lib from the debian depot with the already installed run-time lib (I get the dependency error - dependency not met because the breeze runtime is called 2.8.0-0ubuntu1 vs. the debian runtime is called 2.8.0-1). I tried re-loading the already installed run-time forcing the version to the debian package, but that looks like it would uninstall all kinds of stuff that depends on it.
So now I downloaded the source of the debian package to se
Package names on Ubuntu vs Redhat
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2008
I am trying to install Merak mail server on Ubuntu server 8.04-1. The problem is that Merak is certified for RH5/4 so installing Merak on Ubuntu needs a little extra effort to work. I am trying to install the following libraries and dependencies, but the naming convention seems a bit different on Redhat than that of Ubuntu. Can someone please enlighten me on how I find the equivalent packages on Ubuntu? Where do I start?
CPU - PC 486
Memory - 64MB RAM
Linux kernel 2.4.x and higher
glibc library 2.2.x and higher
No other modules are required to be installed.

64 bit vs 32 bit ubuntu 7.04 for WINE/wowc?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2007
This is going to be my first Linux installation.
I plan on using WINE to run world of warcraft and potentially Microstation J and/or Autocadd 2000.
There will also be lots of internet movies, flash, and open office type stuff.
My machine has a 64 bit AMD chip in it.....
So the question is this;
Will installing the 64 bit version of Ubuntu make everything run faster and better, or will it be bad?
and a related question; does the 64 bit WINE run programs like a 64 bit windows, or a 32 bit windows?
Any recommendations on which version will cause the least amount of pain and suffering? After I get it hammered out on my computer, I'll be switching my brothers' machines over as well.... and they aren't super technical.
Any other advice is welcome too.....
p11kit error Workaround WINE in AMD64 Ubuntu 12.04

If you get the following error on 12.04 when running WINE:
p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Install the gnome-keyring and p11-kit
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-keyring p11-kit
Open up nautilus as root
$ gksu nautilus
Navigate to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and create a directory called pkcs11
Then, go to /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so (while still in root nautilus) and make that *.so file executable (right-click -> properties).
Close root nautilus.
Issue the following command (in a terminal) to establish a symlink.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/gnome-keyring-pkcs11.so
Problem opening iTunes download with Wine with Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 16, 2011
I've run into some problems while trying to install iTunes onto my system (Ubuntu 10.10) using Wine. I've installed Wine and configured everything properly, and then I download iTunes. I've tried downloading several versions, including 7.2 (older version) and the newest version (iTunes 10). However, when I try to open this downloaded file, I get the message:
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.

How to Build an Ubuntu Package
location: linux.com - date: March 21, 2010
Building a distro package is preferred over running a standard compile and install for most application because you want the resulting application of library to be properly referenced and manged through your package manager.
So, I figured it is time to start a thread so we can share instructions and some good links and give the information necessary for new and experienced users to make their own packages of the various applications and libraries that they wish to use on their Ubuntu systems.
For information about making an Ubuntu package refer to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=51003
If you know were to submit packages for including the the repositories or have additional information to share please post here.
Ubuntu/Kubuntu with WINE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2013
Right now I have no Linux PC. Previously I had an Ubuntu 8.04 PC, which has since crashed. However, I have a Windows 7 PC that I'm thinking of overwriting (or MAYBE making a dual boot) and installing either Ubuntu 13.04 or Kubuntu 13.04. I've never used WINE before, but am thinking of giving it a shot because there are a few applications that don't have Linux version that I must use. I was poking around on the WINE web page and found a list of downloads (http://www.winehq.org/download). Is it a different download depending on whether I choose Ubuntu or Kubuntu? Obviously, the first option listed is for Ubuntu. However, I was reading that Kubuntu is based on Debian, so is the right WINE the second link on that list? Or is it the same WINE as Ubuntu.
And, of course, I need to make a choice between Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Ubuntu might be a good choice because I've used it before. Kubuntu might be a good choice because it's KDE and I've found I really like KDE software.
Moving to Ubuntu or Suse or other from Fedora (Wine, OpenOffice, Multimedia)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 9, 2008
I have a Laptop with Fedora and consider moving to Ubuntu or another distribution that runs satisfactory on a laptop. Would be great if anybody could help me with the questions I have:
1) What does Ubuntu include? I couldn't find this on their website and don't want to download hundreds of Megabytes after the installation as I had to do it for Fedora.
2) Is OpenOffice and Fedora included?
3) Is Wine included and running without problems?
4) How good is Ubuntu with supporting current multimedia files, e.g. flv, mp3, dvd player etc
5) How likely is it that I can install Ubuntu over my Fedora installation without cleaning the harddisk first?
6) How good is wireless network support?
7) My laptop is not the youngest - is Ubuntu as resource thirsty as Fedora?
8) Does Ubuntu include mySQL and PHP?
9) I used Suse some years ago which was very comprehensive. Is the current distribution still meeting my criteria above?
