Posted by Thaidog on Dec. 09 2006,05:57I get the folowing errorwhen I try to add a .deb package with dpkg:
root@box~# dpkg -i beep_1.2.1-1_i386.deb
dpkg: /var/lib/dpkg/status: No such file or directory

Posted by Thaidog on Dec. 09 2006,07:19looks like I got it working with the enable apt command. (I could not find the app you are talking about)
Posted by roberts on Dec. 09 2006,16:42"Enable Apt" downloads and loads dpkg-restore.dsl

I've the same, my other problem is that the computer who DSL is installed doesn't have any internet access, so what should i do to install debian packages ?
Posted by roberts on Dec. 10 2006,16:44Just as you somehow managed to get the .deb onto your computer, do the same for dsl-dpkg.dsl and then use the "Load Local" button on the MyDSL icon to install it. Or from the command line
$ mydsl-load dsl-dpkg.dsl
Posted by condor666 on Dec. 11 2006,09:05Thanks, it worked great.
PS : I simply burned it on the DSL cd
