I did a fresh install of Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 (still in development) and when I installed NeroLinux 188.8.131.52 I got the Failed to install error yet it installed. I ran the update-alternatives--config bash and I received there is no alternative for bash. The same for sh. I used gedit to open /var/lib/dpkg/info/nerolinux.postrm and this was what was there:
ESP Package Manager v3.7.0
if [ -x /usr/bin/update-menus ]; then
# echo -n "Updating Debian menus... "
# echo "done!"
I opened nerolinux.postinst and went to line 70:
Creates the desktop file with the parameters above.
- Destination directory for the .desktop file
- audiowrapper command if needed.
cat /usr/share/nero/desktop/NeroLINUX.template > $DESKTOP_PATH
# Check if we should put audiowrapper...
if [ $# -eq 2 ]; then
echo "Exec=$2 --oss-native /usr/bin/nero" >> $DESKTOP_PATH
echo "Exec=/usr/bin/nero" >> $DESKTOP_PATH
# Finally add the desktop icon...
echo "Icon=/usr/share/nero/pixmaps/nero.png" >> $DESKTOP_PATH
and removed the word "function"...then saved it. I went to synaptic and tried to remove nerolinux 184.108.40.206 but could not (error exit status 2). The same thing happened in Ubuntu Edgy 6.10.
There is something wrong with this release. How do you explain that syntax error?
