Additional trac files
Trac is installed in /usr/share/pyshared/trac. Documentation is in /usr/share/doc/trac as is traditional with Debian. It includes both trac and Debian information as well as helper scripts. There are also man pages for tracd and trac-admin.
Configuring Trac Environment under Debian
Debian documentation contains everything you need to setup Trac Environment and make it's web-interface accessible. It can be read with the command:
gunzip < /usr/share/doc/trac/README.Debian.gz |less
Latest version of this file can also be read online.
When SELinux is enabled in Debian (which it is by default on new lenny installations), the svn and trac directories require not only proper group owners but also proper SELinux privileges. These can be setup with the command:
chcon -R -u system_u -r object_r -t httpd_sys_content_t /path/to/svn /path/to/trac
