    11= Debian Squeeze = 
     2If you require a newer version of deluge than what is available in the squeeze repos, 
     3you can install the newest version in the unstable distribution (sid) 
     4 
     5First add sid to your /etc/apt/sources.list 
     6{{{ 
     7deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main 
     8deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main 
     9}}} 
     10(use your local country mirror, eg ftp.uk.debian.org, ftp.fr.debian.org etc.) 
     11 
     12Next we set the priority for each distribution, so that only packages you specify are from sid, not your whole system. 
     13 
     14In /etc/apt/preferences 
     15{{{ 
     16 Package: * 
     17 Pin: release o=Debian,a=squeeze 
     18 Pin-Priority: 900 
     19 
     20 Package: * 
     21 Pin: release o=Debian,a=unstable 
     22 Pin-Priority: 300 
     23 
     24 Package: * 
     25 Pin: release o=Debian 
     26 Pin-Priority: -1 
     27}}} 
     28 
     29Update your packages list  
     30{{{ 
     31aptitude update 
     32}}} 
     33 
     34Now install the version of deluge available in unstable  
     35 
     36{{{ 
     37aptitude -t unstable install deluge 
     38}}}

     41== Launchpad PPA == 
     42An alternative to installing deluge from Sid, involves using a Launchpad PPA for Ubuntu Lucid.  
     43 
     44That release is old enough as to not get any nasty unmet dependencies when those packages are installed on Squeeze.

    346This method does '''not''' work for Lenny, it depends on a package that doesn't exist in Lenny yet, see [wiki:Installing/Linux/Debian/Lenny] as how this can be done.

    5 There is an easy way to get a recent version of deluge on Debian Squeeze even though it is not included in the Debian repositories (those are stuck on 1.2.3).

    7 It involves using a Launchpad PPA for Ubuntu Lucid. That release is old enough as to not get any nasty unmet dependencies when those packages are installed on Squeeze.
