Revision as of 02:53, 19 December 2006


Installing on Debian should be fairly straightforward. The instructions on the standard installation page should cover this just fine.

In due course (after Etch is released) we expect to improve the packaging of RSCDS and upload it directly to Debian. This won't be done before Etch's release because it will add a dependency on two packages which are not going to be released as part of Etch.

  • Sorry, can't make sense of this. How will the package be useful if it's dependent on packages that aren't available? And why can't they be put into the distribution?
    • It will be dependent on the webapps-common package which the Debian Developer has stated will not be released into Debian until after Etch is released. I will also use dbconfig-common, which I thought was going to suffer the same fate, but it appears that one will be in Etch. In the mean time they are available from my own repository which you can use by adding this apt source to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
