Debian and Ubuntu

This document describes three methods of installation on Debian and Ubuntu.

  1. Installing Debian/Ubuntu packages using apt
  2. Installing Debian packages manually.
  3. Building Debian packages.

On Ubuntu systems you probably need to use the sudo command to install/create the packages.

Installing Debian/Ubuntu packages using apt

For Debian add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb etch main

Replace etch by sarge, lenny or sid for those versions.

For Ubuntu add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb feisty main

Replace feisty by dapper, edgy or gutsy for those versions.

Now, install vuurmuur with the following commands:

apt-get update
apt-get install libvuurmuur vuurmuur vuurmuur-conf

Upgrading is easy:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Installing Debian packages manually

Vuurmuur is split in 3 different packages: libvuurmuur, vuurmuur and vuurmuur_conf.

An apt archive is available, see Downloads for the url. Add the url to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run 'apt-get update', when it is finished, do 'apt-get install libvuurmuur vuurmuur vuurmuur-conf'. This will install Vuurmuur! When a new version of Vuurmuur is uploaded to the apt archive, do 'apt-get update' and 'apt-get upgrade' to install the newest version.

As an alternative you can download the packages and install them using the 'dpkg' command like this:

dpkg --install libvuurmuur_0.5.72-1_i386.deb
dpkg --install vuurmuur_0.5.72-1_i386.deb
dpkg --install vuurmuur-conf_0.5.72-1_i386.deb

After the installation succeded, please proceed to the Configuration.

Creating Debian packages

To create the debian packages, you need the source package. Then proceed with the following basic steps:

  1. unpack the source with the command './install --unpack'
  2. enter the libvuurmuur directory and type 'dpkg-buildpackage', this will build the libvuurmuur package
  3. install the libvuurmuur package: dpkg --install ../libvuurmuur_0.5.72-1_i386.deb
  4. do the same for the vuurmuur and vuurmuur_conf directories.

When you upgrade from a previous version of Vuurmuur, do not forget to install the new libvuurmuur package before you build the vuurmuur and vuurmuur_conf packages.
