Thread: How install ".deb" files? Trying to install WebOS SDK...

  1. #1

    Default How install ".deb" files? Trying to install WebOS SDK...

    I want to install the WebOS SDK (from Palm) but it's a ".deb" file. Is there a way to install this on OpenSUSE?

    Hi
    Why not use virtualbox like they suggest?
    http://developer.palm.com/index.php?...rticle&id=1585

    You should be able to right-click and extract the deb file though and
    see the layout of where stuff should be. Don't they have a tar.gz file
    available?

    I don't understand why you suggest i use virtual box instead? I HAVE to use virtual box AND the SDK both.

    No, they don't have a tar.gz (which is annoying of them).

    Hi
    Well if the libraries and such are compiled against ubuntu 8.04,
    install that in virtual machine?

    If you create a temp directory and copy the sdk there then extract it,
    any libraries etc?

    It could be repacked with some work, just had a look at the Novacom one.

    Hi
    Yes, never like it as a hack try it as it will be running in a vm.
    Call me a purist, but like to use proper checks and tests with the suse
    build tools to ensure nothing breaks

    How big is the sdk download?

    Ark under KDE4 ( I guess other tools too) can decompress debs. Extract it to somewhere, then decompress the data.tar.gz file which contains all the files inside a deb package

    Thanks. I'll give that a try and see how it works.

    Any idea if I should install the virtual box they have (ALSO in a .deb file) or is there one in the OpenSUSE repository?

    Hi
    If you install the opensuse virtualbox, then install ubuntu in that,
    then just copy provided .deb files to the ubuntu virtual machine and
    install...

    You could install an openSuSE virtual machine and then copy and extract
    the .deb files and copy them to the appropriate directories, but you
    still need to re-write the novacom start/stop script.
