Cockpit

  • Ok, just tried the install and get the following;

    Code
    E: Unable to locate package cockpit
    E: Unable to locate package cockpit-docker
    E: Unable to locate package cockpit-machines
    E: Unable to locate package cockpit-packagekit
    E: Unable to locate package cockpit-storaged


    But, it does install the first set of commands, searching, the option seems to be to add the following to the etc/apt/sources.list


    Code
    deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main
    deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main

    You have to have backports enabled to install cockpit - https://packages.debian.org/se…on=names&keywords=cockpit

  • enabling this results in a popup with "communication failure", and endless waiting while its tries to enable.

    Your system is struggling with apt-get update then. Post the output of (run as root): apt-get update

  • had to delete some of it because of posting limit - hope this makes sense

  • You can ignore the weakref.py issue. There are many posts about this in the forum.



    To fix it
    get -O /usr/lib/python3.5/weakref.py https://raw.githubusercontent.com/python/cpython/9cd7e17640a49635d1c1f8c2989578a8fc2c1de6/Lib/weakref.py


    Regarding the multiple listing you can commend in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault-kernel-backports.list

  • Ok thanks for that. Errors are gone. But installation fails

    Code
    root@server:/etc/apt# apt-get install virtinst qemu-kvm qemu-utils
    Reading package lists... Done

    Reading state information... Done
    Package qemu-kvm is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package 'qemu-kvm' has no installation candidate
  • Package 'qemu-kvm' has no installation candidate


    Do you really need the virtualization stuff?

  • Yes, was just following the Cockpit install video from Technodadlife.
    I skipped this step (virtualization), and Cockpit is now installed
    Thanks for your help!

    Not sure why Debian doesn't package the qemu-kvm package but most people probably would never create an arm virtual machine.

  • Man I was looking just for that!
    I have 2 questions:
    1) Does cockpit manage history too? Or does it show the usage from only when you open the webpage?
    2) Why do you need to install the qemu-kvm? Do I need it even if I don't need to manage any virtual machines?
