i need some help with this apt and yum thing
Hi u doin' guys :
I need help this time, usually after a couple searches here i c a similar thread with the problem
running fc2 and been trying to :
-install xine or mplayer
have the synaptic and nothin', have the up2date and nothing
run apt-get and nothing ]# apt-get install xine
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package xine
run yum and nothing# yum install xine
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Cannot find a package matching xine
No actions to take
went to RPM Livna.org , downloaded the key
tried to add the repository to /etc/apt/sources.list
vim ---------------->:wq -------------------->
i mean, is it something i'm doing wrong , how can i add the freaking
address to /etc/apt/ ???????
any help i'd appreciate it guys.
Go to www.fedorafaq.com or freshrpms.net. They have info on both yum and apt. I perfer yum since that's what FC ships with. Also, at fedorafaq they have a very good /etc/yum.conf file for you to copy (this is file that points yum in the right direction). I got mplayer (and the plugin), xine, firefox and thunderbrid all to install just fine with these repositories. Give it a shot.
i replaced my yum.config with the one which is on www.fedorafaq.com and when i run yum with any option i get this error:
thering header information file(s) from server(s) Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base retrygrab() failed for: http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/fed...rs/header.info Executing failover method Server: Fedora.us Extras (Stable) retrygrab() failed for: http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/...rs/header.info Executing failover method retrygrab() failed for: http://fedora.quicknet.nl/fedora/fed...rs/header.info Executing failover method retrygrab() failed for: http://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/fed...rs/header.info Executing failover method retrygrab() failed for: http://fedora.mirror.sdv.fr/fedora/f...rs/header.info Executing failover method retrygrab() failed for: http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fed...rs/header.info Executing failover method failover: out of servers to try Error getting file http://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora.us/...rs/header.info [Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
can anybody help me with that please.
thank you all
Re: YUM err
i am not behind a firewall and yum used to work fine with the default "yum.config"
Here is one way that worked well for me on fedora core 2 I could not get yum or up-to-date working properly even with modifying the appro. config files--
get the appropriate apt file here---
I had no problems with apt.
Then copy all the instructions down and print out to reference while updating.
Justin_p and LLS thank you for the quick reply guys, i do appreciate it.
the GPG key was not being imported into the apt/sources files as it was supposed to.
I finally got it working.
Had no internet connection at home for more than a week.
freaking weather .
hope they reimburse me for it though.
LLS --------------> just after the command line rpm --import ----------------->add keyname
or repository URL.
on fedoraforum.org they talk about it , check it out:
hope that helps
............also............as far as yum goes............it downloads only updates from already installed software
.............if you install apt.........install synaptic..........after that anything you install with synaptic or apt-get
..............yum up2date recognizes to download the update
