Installing Packages in Dreamlinux 2.2

Installing Packages in Dreamlinux 2.2

To install packages, type:

# apt-get install telnetd

But let’s say you receive the following error message:

Reading Package Lists… Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occured while processing orange (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.de.debian.org_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

You will need to edit the following file

/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/70debconf

Add the line:

APT::Cache-Limit "16777216";

Save and quit.

The Sources List

You will need to update your sources list. At first my list was not updated and so I google and have a few suggestions. Nevertheless, mine look like the following:

root@mars:/etc/apt/apt.conf.d# grep -v “^#” /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main

deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main
