Default Failure of a deb package installation

Hi:
As no clues arrive from the package web site, may I ask if the
following problems may derive from my bad management of the OS?

Task: install octopus on a multisocket dual-opteron 875, OS = debian
amd64 lenny (octopus is a molecular computational program).


1) downloaded octopus-3.0.1-1.x86_64.rpm.

2) #alien -k --scripts octopus-3.0.1-1.x86_64.rpm (which reported no errors).

3) #dpkg -i octopus-3.0.1-1.x86_64.deb

Selecting previous deselected package octopus.

(Reading database ... 106160 files and directories currently installed).

Unpacking octopus (from octopus-3.0.1-1.x86_64.deb) ...

Setting up octopus (3.0.1-1) ...

dpkg: error processing octopus (--install):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2

Processing triggers for man-db ...

Errors were encountered while processing:
octopus
======

Subsequently, on command

# apt-get update

#apt-get upgrade

1 not fully installed or removed.

Setting up octopus (3.0.1-1) ...

dpkg: error processing octopus (--configure)
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
===
Command

#apt-get -f install

reports now the same error.
======

Is that an error in the configuration of the program?

Thanks for help

francesco pietra

There are no any guarantees that converted packages will work. Better try to find Debian
package if possible.

Hmm, further upstream seems to ship a own debian/ directory with 3.0.1
tar.gz, maybe it can build fine.

You can also fill a RFP (use package wnpp) for octopus.

Kind regards
