Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Best Configuration in Debian for Openacs Development
In additon to the defaults, here are some packages you almost certainly want to install with "apt-get install -u":
- ssh sudo rsync cvs zip unzip emacs21 xemacs21 pinfo mutt tik ntp-simple ntpdate xscreensaver-gnome xpdf-utils xpdf gv gnome-gv
- telnetd ftpd
I personally think it's ridiculous that the default Debian install doesn't include ssh and sudo.
