David Tarrant has built a Debian/Ubuntu package for Eprints.

APT Mirrors

Add one of the following mirrors (2 lines) to your /etc/apt/sources.list file as the root user. Please ensure that there is only one set in the file or you may not experience the correct behaviour.

EPrints 3.1

Stable Release

Add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ stable/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ source/

Unstable Release

To install the latest unstable release add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ unstable/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ source/

Nightly Build

To install the nightly build add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ nightly/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/3.1/ source/

EPrints 3.0

To install the old 3.0 branch follow the same instructions as above replacing 3.1 with 3.0 in all instances.

EPrints 3.2 (Current Trunk Build)

This is available as a nightly build only and offers no guarantees.

To install the nightly build add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://deb.eprints.org/3.2/ nightly/
deb-src http://deb.eprints.org/3.2/ source/


Installing Eprints via apt-get

To install Eprints and all its dependencies execute the following (as root):

apt-get update
apt-get install eprints

Setting up a Repository

You should now have a working installation of eprints in /usr/share/eprints3/. Please follow the on-screen instructions to set up an eprints repository. You probably want to start with (as root):

Read First: Known issues with the Debian/Ubuntu package can be found at Debian Known Issues.

su eprints
cd
./bin/epadmin create
logout
a2ensite eprints3
apache2ctl restart

Getting and Compiling from Source (not required)

To install dependencies and retrieve the Eprints source execute the following:

apt-get update
apt-get build-dep eprints
apt-get source eprints

The source will be saved to a tarball in the current directory.
