Forum OpenACS Development: Updated OpenACS & dotLRN Debian installers
adding to your source list the following repositories and doing "apt-get install [package name]" after.
The installer is for people who wish to try / test OpenACS or dotLRN systems under Debian.
The source is available for any interested user via apt-get
, as well as further updated versions of the installer will continue, plus more improvements.
Any feedback or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
The Software installer has been developed / customized by GES TEAM at the Galileo University (www.galileo.edu) by Adrián Alberto Catalán Santis mailto:email@example.com as part of the E-LANE project (www.e-lane.org),
taking as reference previous installers:

Included software version
The installation has been tested in Debian Linux v3.1 "Sarge" and Ubuntu Linux v5.04 "Breezy Badger"
to install you'll need
-> add the repositories to the source list (/etc/apt/sources.list)
-> apt-get update
to install dotLRN
-> apt-get install dotlrn-2-1
to install openACS
-> apt-get install openacs-5-1
-> apt-get install openacs-5-2
This was to give postgres a chance to startup before dotlrn. Postgres was installed as:
1) The server at Galileo was not available when I attempted the install. Is it frequently down?
2) Has there been an attempt to install under Ubuntu Linux v6.06 "Dapper Drake"? Would there be dependency problems due to the updated repositories?
Thanks for your response
apt-get install postgresql postgresql-dev postgresql-doc apt-get install aolserver4 aolserver4-nspostgres aolserver4-nssha1 aolserver4-nscache tdom
Then install the package:-
dpkg -i openacs-5-1_5.1.5-1_sparc.deb
Seems to be working ok.
One potential pitfall as stated elsewhere is on Debian this is not managed by daemontools, but standard init.d. So when the installer says it's restarting, you will need to run ...
/etc/init.d/openacs-5-1 restart... and wait.
I have not done extensive testing. I have installed the "Automated Testing" package and run system test cases for package acs-tcl, category api, seemed to be ok. Any other suggestions?
