OGo provides nightly builds
based on the development trunk and Debian developer Sebastian Ley is working on official Debian packages for inclusion
in the distribution.
The latter are already committed to
Debian experimental and perform a lot of
configuration which needs to be done manually on other distributions.
Due to preparations for SOPE 4.4 / OGo 1.0 the packages can be outdated and
install instructions might be incorrect. Installation instructions will be
updated if OGo 1.0 packages are available and released.
Thanks for your patience.
Debian guru Sebastian Ley was so kind to provide great experimental packages for OGo. Unlike the Woody packages, Sebastian's already do a lot of
The packages currently can be found in the
Once OGo 1.0 is released these packages willalso be uploaded to the Debian archive.
To use these packages add the corresponding apt source to your /etc/apt/sources.list.
After an apt-get update use apt-get install opengroupware.org to
install the packages. Please ensure that all Recommended packages are installed as well
if you want a standard installation. After installation you need to create configuration
and database setup for an OGo instance. This can be done with the ogo-create-instance
script, which asks some question and creates all necessary files and configuration. It
even does database setup if desired.
It is no problem to reuse existing OGo data, but you have to bear in mind that support
for filesystem based projects won't be installed automatically anymore. If you used
filesystem based projects before, you need to install the package libopengroupware-fs-project5.1 manually.
If you find bugs in the packages don't hesistate to file a bugreport in our bugtracker. Questions and suggestions can
be discussed on our mailing lists.

For Woody you need to install the nightly builds as provided by the OGo
project. Unless Sarge 3.1 is released before OGo 1.0, OGo 1.0 will provide
stable Woody backports.
We are not sure yet whether we are going to support OGo Woody packages.

whether and why Woody 1.0 packages are important for you!

Sarge? Sid? Woody? Testing? Unstable?
Debian distribution versioning is a bit, well, difficult to follow ;-) So
