Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Debian stable or testing? apt-get or yum? etc.

Posted by Roberto Mello on
The OpenACS documentation needs to be updated. The absolutely recommended way to install PostgreSQL on Debian is through the packages.

The packages handle quite a bit of the initial configuration,  do some security tightening, etc. For Debian stable, packages are available from as posted earlier on this thread.

I have installed OpenACS on Debian woody. I grabbed the PostgreSQL woody packages, grabbed the tcl8.4 package from (IIRC) and re-compiled the AOLserver package from unstable.

It'd be nice if the AOLserver package maintainer made woody backports of those packages on his area. Maybe he already does.
