3.1. How to get packages for Debian GNU/Linux

In Debian GNU/Linux Woody, also known as Debian 3.0, Caudium and Pike 7.0 and 7.2 are included in the distribution. If you use Woody, you will have Caudium 1.0 and Pike 7.0/7.2. If you use Sid you will have the latest Caudium and the latest Pike; these two packages are actively maintained by the Caudium community, and you will have frequent updates. If you want to test the latest Caudium under Woody, add this to your /etc/apt/sources.list:


deb http://grendel.firewall.com/debian/caudium/1.2 unstable main
      
This location is mirrored in other locations, so you can also use:

deb http://ftp.oav.net/caudium unstable main 
deb ftp://ftp.oav.net/caudium unstable main
      

If you want php4 Debian package for Caudium, you can do:


# su -
# apt-get update
# apt-get install -f caudium caudium-modules \ 
  caudium-ultralog caudium-pixsl caudium-dev
      
And then grab the PHP4 sources:

# exit
$ cd /usr/src; apt-get source -d php4; apt-get build-dep php4
      
If you don't have devscripts and debhelper installed, install them now. Then enter the /usr/src/php-4* directory and do:

$ debuild binary



      
After some time and some coffee you should have php4 packages for Apache, CGI and your fresh Caudium.
