mining theory – How to install the latest bfgminer binaries directly from terminal without ‘aptitude’ on a raspberry pi 4 8gb running raspbian?

months ago I found an entry on StackExchange or somewhere else on how to install the latest (!) bfgminer binaries directly from terminal. I can not find the stackexchange post, no matter how deep I search here / on Google.

I do not remember if it was a download directly from luke-jr’s website via terminal or from somewhere else. I only remember that it was done via the terminal and it created an executeable shortcut in the /bin/ and/or /usr/bin/ folder.

Visiting the website from luke-jr triggers my anti virus software telling me the website is infected or hosts infected files. So I can’t visit it directly sadly.

Months ago I tried it out on my old RPi and it worked just fine. But now that I had to switch to a newer RPi I can not find or remember the correct terminal command for installing bfgminer binaries directly.

More details about why I need the binaries:
Compiling prints out LOTS of errors for me.
Using ‘sudo aptitude install bfgminer’ needs “aptitude” installed, so I tried to install it and it returned lots of errors, most of the package files where not downloadable (my Internet connection is fine by the way).

Can you help me out with a terminal command that let’s me successfully install bfgminer on raspbian?
On my old Pi I managed to install it without aptitude and without compiling it first.

Thanks so far!

20.04 – How to do `sudo apt install aptitude` but auto default to install package maintainer version?

I’m using Ubuntu 20.04 server edition.

When I run

sudo apt install aptitude

I get the below prompts

Configuration file '/etc/systemd/resolved.conf'
 ==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
 ==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.

Can I avoid all the prompts and just default to package maintainer’s version without being asked?

I will get two kinds of prompts. The command line one as you see above, and the one with slightly more GUI with the pink background asking similar question.

I just want to install with just the package maintainer’s version regardless.

linear algebra – Quantitive Aptitude

‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ can complete a task in 20 days, 25 days, and 32 days respectively. ‘A’ is twice as efficient as ‘D’. All of Them work together for 5 days. Then ‘A’ and ‘C’ worked together for few days. On the last day ‘D’ alone completed the task. If ‘D’ was paid Rs. 960 for his work, how much ‘C’ paid for his work?

Any short method , involves less calculation?

Any idea how to fix the problem?

Package Management – Why does aptitude search python output 3k more results than apt-cache search python?

Enter image description here

One fitness Search for packages with the string python in her name finds ~ 9.5k available packages.

One apt-cache Search for packages with the string python in your name --names-onlyto suit the logic fitness& # 39; s search seems to use] only finds ~ 6.5k available packages.

Any ideas for the reason for this discrepancy?

Are suitability and fitness not comparable?

Maybe their search functions use different logic from each other?

Maybe fitness and apt-cache refer to different resources to get a list of available packages?
I know apt-cache Uses the sources in sources.list to find available packages. I can not imagine that fitness looking outside of sources.list but even could not confirm.

Maybe apt-cache will filter out duplicates?
