    AJ, I was just poking around the new release of 3.6, and encountered KNOPPIX -> Utilities -> "Install Software (while running from CD)". One of the menu choices is apt-get. Looks like Fabian left you an easter egg.

    This is news to me. I don't recall seeing anything about this before.

    I've been trying to update the WIKI a little, and came across this thread. As far as I can tell, not much has been put there about apt. Does anyone know of other resources that would be good to integrate?

    I believe..

    I believe from other help i have gotten from this forum that you need KNoppix to be installed on the harddrive to install any packages, or at least .deb pckages.

    Sometimes we can't read the man

    Superstoned said:
    Code: man apt-get
    gives manual of apt-get. you can use this for every command!
    but when I enter it:
    # man apt-get
    it returns the following:

    gzip: stdout: No space left on device
    man: command '/bin/gzip -dc /usr/share/man/man8/apt-get.8.gz> /tmp/zmanGYqwiN'
    failed with exit status 256
    No manual entry for apt-get

    I need more than "good luck..." I need a teenage geek
    The man entries that I have seen are rather cryptic and presuppose knowledge that this newbie does not have. Is there a manual on how to understand the manual??

    More Apt-Get Issues

    Thanks for this tutorial.

    I've been having my own apt-get issues. I recently installed Abiword, a very nice word processor. I can even create PDF files with it.

    My problem is that now when ever I want to install quite a number of packages including:

    KDE 3.4
    Mplayer

    just to name two,

    I get an apt-get message saying that it will now remove the 7 Abiword packages that make up that installation in order to complete the installation of whatever it is I'm installing.

    I can get around this by installing programs as Deb files. But it is getting frustrating.

    I don't want to remove Abiword.

    What to do? And why is this happening?

    I need this for my Online Tax Forms, so my time is getting tight!!
