Install .deb packages meet some issue.


I want to install passmark in Ubuntu OS to do a performance test.
My Ubuntu Window Manager is Gnome
one is 32 bit machine ,anther is 64 bit machine
I have the installation problem: bitlinux.tar.gz and some needed Debian (Ubuntu) package in hand

So First: Install a Debian (Ubuntu) package (.deb):

sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb.
but will get the prompt like :

(1)in a 64 bit OS:
$ sudo dpkg -i kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb (--install):
package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
Errors were encountered while processing:
kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb

(2)in a 32 bit OS:
# dpkg -i kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb
dpkg: regarding kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb containing kdelibs4c2a:
kdelibs4c2a conflicts with kdelibs-bin
kdelibs-bin (version 4:4.3.2-0ubuntu7.2) is present and installed.
dpkg: error processing kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing kdelibs4c2a
Errors were encountered while processing:
kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb


I don't know how to do continue...I am eager to learn and I look forward to your responses.

Why are you trying to install binary packages from Debian on your Ubuntu machine?

They are Debian packages, I can tell because they have "etch" in the file names.

Sorry, but I think you are wrong here. If you got them with apt-get from an Ubuntu repository, why are you trying to install them with 'dpkg -i'?

In fact, why are you trying to install them at all?

Because the software passmark burn-in test 1.0 with GUI only have 32bit version.
But we double want to run it in a 64bit Ubuntu, But the build-in library is not include 64bit library by default.
So we download the package(32bit) from the offical website and expect to install it in our machine.
I want to know whether there is some easy way to do this.Thanks!

I'm having trouble following you. It would be easier if you could post whatever error messages or instructions prompted you try and install those packages. For example, did you run a ./configure script a get some errors? Or were you reading some documentation?

okay,now I can run passmark BurninTest in Ubuntu 32bit OS and My steps as following:

(1)Prepare the software -- bitlinux.tar.gz (require licence)

(2)uncompress ".tar.gz" files

(3)launch BurnInTest Linux from the command line. Will get error this:

./burnintest:
error while loading shared libraries: libkio.so.4: cannot open shared

search from the web: http://www.passmark.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2424
(Depending on which distribution of Linux you're using there should be a package manager available
from the main menu that will allow you to add and remove libraries. You will need to install the
kdelibs packages, which should include all the kde related libraries.)

(4)using the downloaded package: kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb
root@test-desktop:~# dpkg -i '/root/Desktop/burn deb/kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb'
dpkg: warning: downgrading kdelibs4c2a from 4:3.5.10.dfsg.1-2ubuntu7.2 to 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1.
dpkg: regarding .../kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb containing kdelibs4c2a:
kdelibs4c2a conflicts with kdelibs-bin
kdelibs-bin (version 4:4.3.2-0ubuntu7.2) is present and installed.
dpkg: error processing /root/Desktop/burn deb/kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb (--install):
conflicting packages - not installing kdelibs4c2a
Errors were encountered while processing:
/root/Desktop/burn deb/kdelibs4c2a_3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8etch1_i386.deb

(5)Then install kdelibs4c2a
root@test-desktop:~/Desktop/burnintest# apt-get -f install kdelibs4c2a
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:


root@test-desktop:~/Desktop/burnintest# apt-get -f install
Processing triggers for libc-bin ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place


root@test-desktop:~/Desktop/burnintest# apt-get install kdelibs4c2a
kdelibs4c2a is already the newest version.
-->okay

(6)run burnintest again and succeed
root@test-desktop:~/Desktop/burnintest# ./burnintest
"debug.log" will be created at
"/root/Desktop/burnintest",
please send log to help@passmark
if you encounter problems during start-up.

I think that you still have the ubuntu version of kdelibs4c2a

step 4: failed to install Debian etch version
step 5: fixed orignial ubuntu version, which was put in messed up state by trying to install Debian etch version

So, it's working now?

Cheers,

Evo2.
