New beta Nuxeo DM package for Debian / Ubuntu


Mon 13 December 2010 By Stefane Fermigier

We have made a new .deb package of Nuxeo DM for Debian and Ubuntu. Deb

It's available for Debian 5.0 "Lenny" (and probably works for Squeeze too), and for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid" and 10.10 "Maverick".

There are a few major changes over the previous (5.3.2) packages:

Since this is still a recent development, we ask those with a Debian or Ubuntu machine suitable for deploying test software to try to install the package and report any issue you might find.

To do so:

Note that on Debian Lenny, you might need to enable the backports if you run into errors such as "nuxeo-dm: Depends: postgresql (>= 8.4) but 8.3.12-0lenny1 is to be installed".

To do so, add "deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main contrib non-free" to your /etc/apt/sources.list

Note that at this point, these packages come with absolutely NO WARRANTY. We can't promise that it won't break your system, erase your data, etc.

ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DATA before running an install or an upgrade, and perform the install first on a test server before deploying it in production.

One last thing: we have, according to the logs of the apt.nuxeo.org server, at least 2000 deployed instances of Nuxeo on Debian or Ubuntu. With this new, much improved version, we hope to gain many more users in the Debian and Ubuntu communities and hope you will help us with the final QA steps needed to deliver production-grade packages.

For Linux users of other distributions than Debian and Ubuntu: I'm sure you are also interested in having RPMs for Red Hat / Fedora / CentOS / Mandriva / OpenSuSE. If you're willing to help us with the task of creating this or these packages, drop me an email. I'm sure that parts of the scripts that have been written for Debian / Ubuntu can be reused.

The source code for the installer lives in http://hg.nuxeo.org/tools/nuxeo-packaging/ BTW.
