Kuroo problem

Post by itstito » Sun Apr 08, 2007 18:42

well, kuroo is a file installer, right? whenever i queue a package and click on the check installation button, everything goes fine, but when i click on the start installation button, it proceeds and then stops midway, showing only 10% or so installed, after which i've to press the start install button again...but finally the thing doesn't get installed.

my questions:
1) where do the packages get installed? whats the path?
2) why is this problem occuring?

thanks in advance, guys. :)

Use emerge. It works and its too simple. Read the Gentoo and Sabayon wiki on package management.

i've tried emerge....theres this problem i face:
whenever i download a .tar.gz package from the net, i use the terminal. this is what i do:

suppose the name of the package is snes9x.tar.gz
i type su
i enter the password
then i type emerge snes9x
what happens is, some code and all comes up which says i can't download from the tar package.

i guess you have to extract it someplace and then try? i've tried extracting it to my home folder, but still the same thing occurs. do you have to extract it some where else? i read somewhere it should be usr/local/src but i've tried that too....they say access denied to that folder. can you extract it there from source?

HELP! :(

You don't need to download the source. In order to emerge the package ensure it is in the portage tree by using a search tool like packages.gentoo.org or gentoo-portage.com or emerge -s packagename.

Please see Sabayon Package Management Guide on the Sabayon Wiki.

In order to use emerge is better to have internet where you are using your computer, and get networking working on sabayon. Probably emerge wants to download the file and you cannot retrieve the file since you are not connected.

And if you don't like emerge, use Porthole - it works.
