Installing and Running Trac on Debian Woody

Debian packages for Trac and a few dependencies doesn't exist in the Debian Woody distribution. Fortunately the Edgewall ftp-server has the missing packages. Add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

# Trac, clearsilver, sqlite, pysqlite
deb http://ftp.edgewall.com/pub/debian woody trac
deb-src http://ftp.edgewall.com/pub/debian woody trac
# Subversion, Apache2
deb http://people.debian.org/~adconrad woody subversion
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~adconrad woody subversion

Run apt-get update after editing the file to update the package cache.

Installing Trac and the required dependencies should now be as simple as:

apt-get install trac

Note: When installing trac you might get some harmless warnings when the installation process byte-compiles some source files.

The rest of the installation process is as described in TracInstall (section "Creating a Project Environment" and forward).

It can happen that, by using dselect, the newer libsqlite in the trac repository won't be found. If this is the case, manually install the files named '*sqlite*.deb' from the above mentioned URL.

Note: Sarge has a separate installation page here: TracOnDebianSarge.

PowerPC users: There are some packages built for the unstable distribution, with dependencies on python2.3 at http://awkly.org/files/debian/

WNPP: Sid packages seem to be making some progress, see http://bugs.debian.org/235058. There's a preliminary version available; see the link for current status.

Building Packages From Trunk: There is now a guide for building packages for Sid from the Subversion trunk: TracOnDebianFromTrunk
