View Full Version : howto install apt?

4th May 2004, 04:27 AM
Is there a howto for this? I understand is popular so people have to get the info somewhere, right? I saw one of the threads here and tried installing it myself and this is what I get:

# rpm -i apt-0.5.15cnc6-0.fdr.11.1.i386.rpm
warning: apt-0.5.15cnc6-0.fdr.11.1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 8df56d05
error: Failed dependencies:
librpm-4.2.so is needed by apt-0.5.15cnc6-0.fdr.11.1
librpmdb-4.2.so is needed by apt-0.5.15cnc6-0.fdr.11.1
librpmio-4.2.so is needed by apt-0.5.15cnc6-0.fdr.11.1

Either that or is there an up-to-date list of working yum repositories? I'd like to install mplayer but I can't cause of failed dependencies that can't be located..

The semi-official replacement yum.conf is here: http://fedorafaq.org/faq/samples/yum.conf

apt is in one of the yum repositories, just run
yum install apt and one software manager will install another! :D The graphical synaptic tool has been built for Fedora as well. It's nice.

Hm when I run that command with the yum.conf you provided, I get this:

# yum install apt
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1.92 - i386 - Base
retrygrab() failed for:

[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

Ps. any idea how long until FC2 goes stable? and can I upgrade from test3 to stable just using yum when the time comes?

Upgrade to the last RPM version for Fedora Core 1 first here (http://rpmfind.rediris.es/rpm2html/librpmio-4.2.so.html)
Then try to install APT. If not, try to install an older version of APT.

that's no good either:

# rpm -i rpm-4.2.1-0.30.i386.rpm
warning: rpm-4.2.1-0.30.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
popt = 1.8.1 is needed by rpm-4.2.1-0.30

What I'd like to know is would this be working fine if I was on FC1, is this because I'm running unstable?

My HowTo was for Fedora Core 1


I said:

I'll do another one for Fedora Core 2 final stable version as soon as it'll be released.

You should download apt for your current Fedora version.

Good Luck

i'm having the same problem and exact same reasons, i believe.

are there any FC1.92 Repos yet? fedora.us only has http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fedora/1.92/i386/ , which doesn't have yum yet... so i can't seem to install apt. i've tried, but i'm missing dependencies also.

I installed apt-get using this site (http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/) then I installed synaptic so I had an easy to use gui

there R 2 similar versions of apt out right now. the depent on different rpm-versions. as u use rpm-4.3 u should try 2 install this one:

btw the 1.92 repositories dont exits anymore...
they changed the pathes allready for the launch of core 2 (e.g use 2 instead of 1.92 in the pathes of yum.conf or source.list [for apt])
