Can I install the SW with the command "dpkg -i programname"
Is there any simple way of installing the SW?
For example I tried with dpkg -i php or dpkg -i php.deb etc.
dpkg is the command line tool for installing a package you made or
previously downloaded by yourself.
apt is the tool for automatically download and install a package and
its dependencies. dselect is an universal char-based front-end to apt.
try this, as root:
apt-get install php4
then give a look at dselect and what it could do for you.
