I have a x86_64 system. 3.13.0-36-generic #63-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux. I'm trying to find packages for netperf. apt-get install doesn't find it. I see the package is available here, but not for x86_64: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+package/netperf I must be stupid, can someone point how can I install this package?

Thanks in advance.

    netperf is in multiverse, so you'll need to enable it

    x86_64 means amd64 (so there is a package for you)

  • @muru Multiverse is enabled by default.

  • @Pilot6 I just booted a VM into a 16.04 ISO to check, and this is what I got: i.stack.imgur.com/iBiuB.png Anyway, I'm not getting into another argument with you. Keep your claims.

  • @muru In LiveUSB you are correct. But on an installed system it is enabled. Do you ever use Ubuntu? ;-)

I can point you to the package for x86_64 arch.


These packages have amd64 in the name.
