[SOLVED] No LSB modules available although lsb is installed

Postby toquinho » 2018-08-22 23:50

Hello,

I have just installed lsb-base, lsb-release and lsb-compat on a recent installation of Debian stretch:

Code: Select all
Linux TRILLIAN 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u3 (2018-08-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux


When checking for the LSB modules, lsb_release says that there are no LSB modules installed.

Code: Select all
toquinho@TRILLIAN:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:   Debian
Description:   Debian GNU/Linux 9.5 (stretch)
Release:   9.5
Codename:   stretch


I rebooted and reinstalled the packages (see below), but this did not help. The software I need to run does not work (commercial numerics code compiled on CentOS). It worked well on my previous installation of Stretch (and Jessie).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

none of the packages claims that it contains lsb modules. Please read [1]

Thanks a lot for your response. This does not sound good.

For some reason I was able to make the software I need work on stretch before earlier this year. If LSB in stretch did not undergo any changes in stretch during the last months, the problem may be something different.

I will try to backport and install lsb-core from sid.

Debian stable keeps the same packages since it's release and only applies security patches. So it's probably something else. What software are you trying to install? What are the error messages?

Currently, I also assume that the problem is not related to LSB. The software I am trying to use is a hardware accelerated electrodynamics solver. It uses a library provided by https://www.acceleware.com/fdtd-solvers. Their diagnostics tool reports:
GPU Status: Some Tests Failed
. The error message I get from the solver is not helpful, either. I probably forgot something different when I reinstalled my computer a few days ago. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not provide any support for any other Linux than CentOS. I will let you know when I have news.

Sorry, it was something different. Forgot to install the nvidia cuda libraries. Thanks a lot for all your help!
