Disabling MySql from running at boot solved the problem. (HowTos)

Howto force synaptic/update manager/aptitude to accept a broken package?view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all, I think I had found an answer to this, but I cannot get my hand on it, so here it is: I forced the install of graph-tool package (from http://downloads.forked.de/graph-tool/debian/ i386/).

Question about Javaview story

Can you check this script I wrote?view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hey all,I wanted to expand my old script, which basically just installed packages, to a script that gives you options on what to install. For example:"Do you want Firefox or Chromium?"I'm not very good at scripting, and thus I looked for a script which already had that feature and took that at hand for editing my own. I found this script. (HowTos)
