I am trying to install noip dynamic update client on ubuntu server 13.04. I am able to get through the auto config up to the point where it tries to create the debian package. Here is the error log.

dpkg-deb: building package `noip-2.1.9' in `/usr/local/src/noip-2.1.9-1/noip-2.1
.9_1-1_amd64.deb'.                                                              
dpkg-deb: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:                                  
 wait for subprocess gzip -9c failed: No child processes   

(everything must be done via command line)

In response to a comment, I am calling the process by a few commands.

 apt-get install build-essential checkinstall
cd /usr/local/src/
wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
dir
cd  noip-2.1.9-1/
checkinstall

I am using this as a guide

  • How are you calling it? I mean, please add the command you are typing. – Braiam Dec 5 '13 at 23:11

The only issue I see, unless I'm blatantly missing something, is that you're running with the wrong permissions. Instead, try:

sudo apt-get install build-essential  
sudo checkinstall        
cd /usr/local/src/             
sudo wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz   
tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz  
dir  
cd  noip-2.1.9-1/  
sudo checkinstall   

Running with root permissions should at least narrow down the issue, get you on the right track. I checked the info listing for checkinstall, it recommends that in most cases, you use it with root privileges.
