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: See TracWiki for help on using the wiki.
