[Solved] Automatix2 Problem : A2 Does Not Recognize Debian Etch
UPDATE: After a few clarifications with emesaj I have finally gotten around to making A2 to work. The solution was simple really. I am going to repost it here. Thanks to emesaj
Note: When he meant change the code - he meant add '#' to the following lines.
First u need to install tango-icon-theme here is the link for deb package:
second download and install automatix
after that open console, become root and run that command
and change the following lines#get distro version...
#conf.uVersion = getDistVersion()
#if axConf.distro[’version’] != conf.uVersion or axConf.distro[’name’] != conf.uName:
#alert(”This version of Automatix is for %s %s only”%(axConf.distro[’name’],axConf.distro[’version’]),sys.exit)
#check enviroment for synaptic ect…
save and exit gedit...
and start automatix!
THE PROBLEM: I know, Automatix2 is lazy Linux computing. But hey, isn't the computer for people who don't want to use a typewriter, calculator or an abacus? One word: AUTOMATION. Why use a computer if you can't automate tasks?
I tried installing it and followed the instructions verbatim from Automatix2's wiki
The installation went well until I tried to run it:
I clicked on yes. Then up popped this monster.
The Catch: I am running Debian Etch 4.0r0. Doh!
I went over to Arnieboy's Web Forums for Automatix2 Debian Etch Support over at:
It seems like a lot of people have the same problem - that is unresolved up to now.
I made a few posts:
