Hello another question ;)

I don't found paquet virtualbox with the command apt-cache search virtualbox I have just this return:
Code: Select all
 user1@PC1 $ apt-cache search virtualbox
fence-agents - Fence Agents for Red Hat Cluster
imvirt - detects several virtualizations
imvirt-helper - helper programs to detect several virtualizations
libimvirt-perl - Perl module for detecting several virtualizations
libnss-libvirt - nss plugin providing IP add ress resolution for virtual machines
libvirt-clients - Programs for the libvirt library
libvirt-daemon - Virtualization daemon
libvirt-daemon-system - Libvirt daemon configuration files
libvirt-dev - development files for the libvirt library
libvirt-doc - documentation for the libvirt library
libvirt-sanlock - Sanlock plugin for virtlockd
libvirt0 - library for interfacing with different virtualization systems
python-libvirt - libvirt Python bindings
python3-libvirt - libvirt Python 3 bindings
packer - tool for creating machine images for multiple platforms
vagrant - Tool for building and distributing virtualized development environments
vagrant-azure - Microsoft Azure provider for Vagrant
vagrant-lxc - Linux Containers provider for Vagrant
vagrant-mutate - convert vagrant boxes to work with different providers
volatility - advanced memory forensics framework
xmount - tool to crossmount between multiple input and output harddisk images
virtualbox-guest-utils - x86 virtualization solution - non-X11 guest utilities

My sources.list is
Code: Select all
root@system $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# testing
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free

# GNS3
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gns3/ppa/ubuntu xenial main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gns3/ppa/ubuntu xenial main


But I don't understand with another system I have the same sources.list and my return is:
Code: Select all
 user2@PC2 $ apt-cache search virtualbox
fence-agents - Fence Agents for Red Hat Cluster

Since you are using Testing, we expect you to be able to do some searches and troubleshooting;

If you did, you would find this >> https://packages.qa.debian.org/v/virtua ... 3909Z.html because of this >> https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=794466

Thank you.

A hint that you really shouldn't be running testing yet is if you go ahead and install potentially risky Ubuntu PPAs without even checking to see if Debian has the same version of the same gns3 package in its own repositories--which it does.

Debian stable has the same version of gns3, too.

Steve, you mean Debian Testing or Sid is not the same thing as Ubuntu :shock:

...and the Ubuntu PPAs are still left enabled. :roll:

Learn to walk on stable before you run testing.
