This technique of installing EPrints allows you build your own debian package for eprints from our source (of the binary).

Configuring APT

Using your favorite text editor edit "/etc/apt/sources.list" and add the lines:

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

The update your apt

 root@host$ apt-get update

Install build dependancies

This can now be done with one command:

 root@host$ apt-get build-dep eprints

Get EPrints source

 root@host$ apt-get source eprints

This will provide you with a tar.gz which is extracted to the current directory.
