agt-get and yum.

Postby azfar » Fri Jan 19, 2007 5:12 pm

I am on fedora and want to install a software which mainly install its dependencies from apt-get (on debian). I want to know can I install these packages from yum or can I install and configure apt-get on fedora.

apt-get works on debian-based distributions only. what package is it? yum takes care of dependencies, wherever possible.

apt works

Postby mushtaq » Mon Mar 19, 2007 7:49 am

Asalamualikum to all,

brothers for your information apt works for redhat as well but the repositories are different from that of debian. Redhat has there own repositories.

yum -y install apt

will solve your problem once installed you can simply use

apt-get update

apt-cache search xyz

apt-get install

;)

have a nice day

Best regds

apt-get problem

Postby sarthor » Fri Apr 06, 2007 5:01 pm

Salam O Alykum,

Facing problem about apt-get on ubuntu edgy, 6.10,
root@sarthor:~# apt-get -y install macchanger
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ymessenger: Depends: libgdk-pixbuf2 (>= 0.13.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libgtk1.2 (>= 1.2.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libssl0.9.6 but it is not installable
Depends: xlibs (> 3.3.6) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


Waiting for your replies.
Thank you all.
Allah Hafiz.

Dear sarthor,
Salam,

I believe you should install following packages libgdk-pixbuf2, libgtk1.2, libssl0.9.6 and xlibs.

# apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf2 libgtk1.2 libssl0.9.6 xlibs

Best Regards.
