hello all,
i just installed xine and mplayer using apt-get but i'm not getting the way to install "gyach" using apt- get.
i wrote
Code:
apt-cache search gyach
on the console.

Try to do this:
Code:
1) apt-get remove gyach
2) apt-get install gyach
Perhaps a previous installation of this package went wrong so another installation of this package crashes. First try to remove, then try to reinstall. If this doesn't work, surf to packages.debian.org and browse the package list and download the package from the website. If you can find it, it will kinda ask to install itself because you are using a debian distro

I tried the way you instructed...

Code:
apt-get remove gyach
is giving the output

Code:
root@localhost root]# apt-get remove gyach
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package gyach
[root@localhost root]#
moreove i'm not on debian.....i'm on redhat 9.

initially i' was trying to install gyach using source package.....but it failed so there was a directory with the name gyach...
on executing
Code:
locate gyach
it showed some directories containing gyach
i manually removed all that directories...but still i'm not being able to install it

Code:
apt-get install gyach
its giving the error....

Code:
[root@localhost root]# apt-get install gyach
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package gyach
what should i do now???

regards

gyach @ rpmfind.net
Download the CORRECT(!) rpm package and install using:
Code:
rpm -i /path/to/package/<package>.rpm
If the correct package isn't listed there, try this one. It's made for the Fedora core, but it wil probably also run on a normal RedHat distro

is there not any way of installing "gyach" using apt-get in red hat...???
actually i'm fed up of installing using rpms and source packages........they irritates a lot and
at very few occasions they work ( at least in my case )

i installed gaim through apt-get but while logging on its giving the following error..

Code:
Gaim has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
This is a bug in the software and has happened through
no fault of your own.

It is possible that this bug is already fixed in CVS.
If you can reproduce the crash, please notify the gaim
maintainers by reporting a bug at
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/bug.php

Please make sure to specify what you were doing at the time,
and post the backtrace from the core file. If you do not know
how to get the backtrace, please get instructions at
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gdb.php. If you need further
assistance, please IM either RobFlynn or SeanEgn and
they can help you.
Aborted
i'm just fed up of these problems...
plz. help

And the solution for that seems to be the URL I gave you in my previous post. The page I got it from contained more or less the same story about gaim.

First thing I would try for gyach, which I just installed tonight using the RPMs, is installing it with no dependancies like it says in their instructions. Second, if you do not like RPMs, Redhat Package Management, why are you using Redhat? Try a debian distro, knoppix, mepis, ubuntu. They are all good.
