hi i am using grizzly edition for installation below packages:

sudo apt-get install nova-novncproxy novnc nova-api nova-ajax-console-proxy nova-cert nova-conductor nova-consoleauth nova-doc nova-scheduler nova-network

but i get an error that novnc is depended to libjs-swfobject package. of course this package is not in precise-updates/grizzly main

so i am using repo ( sid main ) for installing that package. Is it not mentioned any thing about this issue. by doing this work i successfully install novnc and others.

my question : Is it true ??

Two methods to resolve this problem:

  • Download libjs-swfobject and install it manually

I get novcn search result, the "sid(unstable)" support few arch, I select the wheezy(stable) . Download the .deb file for your arch, install it manually:

$ sudo dpkg -i libjs-swfobject_2.2+dfsg-1_all.deb

$ sudo apt-get install -y novnc
  • Using debian wheezy sources.list

Choose a wheezy sources.list, paste it into a file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wheezy.list

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install -y novnc
