Posted by dishfiebre on May 29 2004,02:51I just installed DSL on my Hard Drive and need to know hoe to deal with downloaded .deb and .dsl files. All I get when ckick on them is a dialog box asking me what to do, but none seem to define the installation procedure.
Posted by alochin on May 29 2004,06:38For a *.deb package, I use dpkg -i *.deb
I tried it for *.dsl, but it does not work (it complains it's not a debian package).
We need help here.
Posted by cbagger01 on May 29 2004,06:43Try this for *.dsl:
tar -C / -zxvf filename.dsl
You will need to manually edit your Fluxbox menu if you want to add a menu item for your new program.
