     1DominicHargreaves has created some Debian packages for OpenGuides. To use them, simply add the following line to your ''/etc/apt/sources.list'' file:
     4deb        unstable/
     7The packages should work with the current stable (3.1), testing and unstable branches, but are not rigourously tested. For current bugs and information, see [wiki:Debian_package_bug_tracking].
     9= Installing With the Debian Packages =
     11To install the OpenGuides software with the Debian packages, add the above line to your ''sources.list'' file, then:
     14apt-get update
     17Before we install the OpenGuides software itself, we need to know which database backend(s) we're planning on using, which webserver(s), and which search indexers. By default, OpenGuides will install the MySQL database backend and Apache 1.x webserver, so if you're planning on using SQLite or Postgres, or Apache 2, we need to specify this when installing the software. The Debian packages will note that you're installing one of the backends and won't force its own choices on you. To see what alternatives are available, look at the dependencies for the ''openguides'' package in your manager of choice and look for alternatives. For database backends, check the dependencies of ''libcgi-wiki-perl'' which ''openguides'' will install for you.
     19So for a setup using SQLite as a database, Apache 2 as a webserver, and Plucene for searching, you would use
     22apt-get install apache2 libdbd-sqlite3-perl libplucene-perl openguides
     25However, the standard
     28apt-get install openguides
     31should give you a system which works. Either way, apt will now install an awful lot of Perl libraries for you, and hopefully set them up as well.
     33Once you've installed the Debian packages, take a look in ''/usr/share/doc/openguides/'' for tips on setting up guides.
