You don't say which altarch you are using but I'm guessing it's i686?

We don't ship proftpd and attempting to install packages from Fedora is not a good plan - they either won't work or in extreme cases they might even break your system. If your system is i686 then you cannot install packages for x86_64 (64 bit Intel) or aarch64 (64 bit arm).

Why not use the ftp daemon that we actually ship? vsftpd is in the base/updates repo.

We don't ship chrome either and if you're running i686 then you'll find that almost all if not all third party repos don't ship 32 bit packages at all.

How I can check is it i686 or the other please let me know that and I want proftpd because it comes with sentroa installer. Everything from sentora installer in working fine except the proftpd getting following error in sentora installer log

Code: Select all

-- Installing ProFTPD
Error: Nothing to do
Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory
Failed to start proftpd.service: Unit not found.
Then I tried to install proftpd manually and I am not able to install that. For chrome I just download the package(rpm) from chrome website and its showing same error as you can see in screenshot.

What's the output from uname -a ?

Is there a reason why you're using the altarch and not the main x86_64 distro?

Maybe I am off topic, but I would recommend Ncftpd instead of proftpd. I believe it's the best FTP server for Unix systems, much better than WU-ftpd and all the successors like proftpd. It has not been updated for a while, but still works great on Linux (even with systemd) and also on my SGI O2 Irix. It's commercial software, but free for personal use as long as you set "max-users=3". It's easy to install, easy to configure, lightning fast and does not eat CPU. If I needed more than 3 users, I would consider paying for the license.

Oops, I checked the website and they no longer sell licenses. You are stuck with 3 users, unless you can find the ncftpd.key on a warez server. Sorry...


Edit: I asked and they do in fact sell unsupported licenses here: http://www.ncftp.com/order/paypal_all.html

I removed altarch from system and installed CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso GNOME Desktop from http://centos.excellmedia.net/7/isos/x86_64/ and tried to install Sentora and again I got save error Proftpd is not found.

Proftpd is in EPEL. So

Code: Select all

yum install epel-release
then

Code: Select all

yum install proftpd

This solved the problem for proftpd, now I am able to install proftpd in CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso GNOME Desktop(didn't check in the AltArch) but still I am unable to install teamviewer.

Teamviewer is a separate issue. You don't say what problems you're having, but in any case since it's proprietary software you'd better ask Teamviewer.
