I'm like 100% new to Linux. I just try to help a friend who got a EEE 4G Netbook with Linux. (should be Xandros / thats what Wikipedia says)
I want to get him Wine, so he can use some Windows programs. I used Wine 10 years ago when i had a pc using debian. I only worked with 5-6 Commands and already forgot about all of them. I googled alot the past days, but only ran into new problems. So hear is my Problems that occured.
I started with adding new sources to be able to get wine downloaded. I cant find the page i looked it up. Here they are:
stable main non-free contrib
stable/non-US main contrib non-free
Back to my progress. after adding the sources i updated : apt-get update. It worked out well. So far everything was good.
Now i wanted to install Wine. apt-get install wine.
E: It went to like 92% and afterwards said:
dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: An error occured while loading from xnbd-client (New Package)
E: problem with mergelist /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.us.debian.org_debian_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_packages
E: The Paketlist or the status file cant be parsed or opened.
Again i googled this problem and got to the point of setting the cache onto a higher level.
I then used:
sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.d
sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.d/70debconf
to change the cachelimit.
I afterwards tried:
sudo nano /etc/apt/apt-conf.d/11cachelimit.
I typed in apt::Cache-limit "32768000"
So far so good. but every time i tried to safe it, it said: file or directory not found.
And thats where I am right now beeing really pissed and tired of typing in all those commands not even knowing what they really mean.
I hope my english was ok i translated the errors and stuff from german. (I'm from germany) Pls be patient with me. I'm really a newbie.
