Edgewall Software

Version 38 (modified by anonymous, 16 years ago) ( diff )

Some small Debian Sid additions.

Installing and Running Trac on Debian Sid

A Debian package for Trac is in the main archive of the unstable distribution.


apt-get install trac

to install it.

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


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. Sarge/Sid users won't know these links are here under the Woody section.

Note: See TracWiki for help on using the wiki.
