Installing Plone4 on Debian/Squeeze
After writing how to Install Plone4 on Debian/Lenny, I thought I'd follow up with an update for Debian Squeeze (please look into the upper right corner), which is what I'm currently using.
The good news: After having many software packages updated on Squeeze,
You basically don't need much extra software to run Plone4. Install
some required packages. using
aptitude. The following
set should get you started, although it will pull in a significant
number of dependencies:
# aptitude install python2.6-dev python-virtualenv python-setuptools build-essentials
After that, you simply create your virtualenv, like before:
$ virtualenv --no-site-packages vplone
and populate that:
$ source vplone/bin/activate (vplone)$ easy_install PIL paste lxml ZopeSkel
Now you create your Plone buildout directory along the lines outlined
but you can, of course, substitute
plone4_buildout for the
plone3_buildout (both should work).
I personally prefer to have a local
versions.cfg, too, so I change my
buildout.cfg to read eg.
extends = base.cfg versions.cfg
and fetch an appropriate
that, you should be ready to run your buildout and get the ball
rolling, like eg.
(vplone)$ buildout ... lots and lots of output clipped...
Watch out for any error messages which might be flushed out of the terminal window by the dumping of the eggs list.
