Installing deb

Postby Ari » 2005-09-09 08:45

I'm trying to install scratchbox packages. I have added line:
deb (h)ttp://scratchbox.org/download/files/sbox-releases/0.9.8/deb/ ./
to my /etc/apt/sources.list, but the installer can't connect to that address. The same is with security.debian.org, although I can ping the address. What might be wrong? (I can access the web with a browser).

Another question: How can I install deb-packages which are located in hard disk?

Once you remove the parentheses from around the "h," the line works just fine.

Assuming all dependencies are satisfied, you can do this with the command dpkg -i /path/to/deb-package

Those parentheses are because otherwise it is interpreted as a web address, and in the preview it didn't look good (it's not showed completely).
