Installing and Running Trac on Debian Sid

Run apt-get install trac

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

Installing and Running Trac on Debian Woody

Debian packages for Trac and a few dependencies don'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

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

Note: Sarge has a separate installation page here: TracOnDebianSarge. You may also be able to run the sid versions of these packages.

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

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


A reader's suggestion: please consider moving the paragraphs above with the links for TracOnDebianSarge and TracOnDebianFromTrunk up to the Sid section at the top of this page. Sid users won't know these links are here under the Woody section.

Note: See TracWiki for help on using the wiki.
