Fatal failing to fork error

Asked by Hitesh Vyas on 2009-11-21

On running aptoncd, and selecting 'create', it reads packages upto 65% level , then crashes and vanishes. Terminal window shows error as 'Fatal > failing to fork'. Do not know what to do? I have 'Ubuntu9.04-jaunty' (dual boot with winxp system, integrated intel828chipset, processor 1.76mhz)

This was a known bug, the fix didn't went into the repos.

First remove the current version.

Download and install http://launchpadlibrarian.net/18476205/aptoncd_0.1.98-0ubuntu4_all.deb

Hitesh Vyas, you can safetly install it using dpkg --force-all -i aptoncd_0.1.98-0ubuntu4_all.deb.
The dependecy problems is just related to the packaging rules and will nor break your system.

Pleasem close the question if it was solved after that :D

Thank you.
