Nuxeo + Ubuntu = open source ECM for the masses

| Comments

I'm happy that we announced today that:

  • Our Nuxeo DM packages have been accepted in the Ubuntu "Partner" repository, so that it's even easier than before to install Nuxeo DM (and soon, other products from Nuxeo) on an Ubuntu Linux server.

  • Nuxeo is now a part of Canonical's "Software Partner Programme" and listed as a "software partner" on the Ubuntu site.

  • Canonical is now listed as a partner in our own partner directory.

  • More than 1/2 of our developers are using Ubuntu Linux on their main development machine, and 100% of our production servers are using either Debian or Ubuntu Linux (OK, that part was not it the official announcement, but it's the truth ;).

Debian and Ubuntu packages available for Nuxeo DM 5.3.2 (stable)

| Comments

With Nuxeo DM 5.3.2 released just a few minutes ago, I'm happy to report that we now have stable packages for Debian Lenny (4.0) and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.4 LTS).

To enjoy these packages using APT or Aptitude, just add the following lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
deb http://apt.nuxeo.org/ lucid releases

Then run:

apt-get install nuxeo-dm-tomcat # (or nuxeo-dm-jboss)

See my previous blog post on the same subject to learn how to report issues, ask for feature or contribute to the packaging code.

Updated 2010/12/13: with the 5.4.0 release of Nuxeo DM, the package name for Nuxeo DM to use in your apt-get install command is now just: nuxeo-dm.

New (experimental) Ubuntu packages for Nuxeo DM and DAM

| Comments

We've restarted work on Debian/Ubuntu packages.

To try the new packages on an Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) machine, you can add the following line at the end of your /etc/apt/sources.list :

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
deb http://apt.nuxeo.org/ lucid snapshots

Then you can run:

$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install nuxeo-dm-jboss

OR (at this point you can't have both DM and DAM on the same server, at least not running at the same time, unless you change the ports of one of the servers):

$ apt-get install nuxeo-dam-jboss

Currently only snapshots versions are provided, we need your help to test and make the system extra robust for when Nuxeo DM 5.3.2 will be released (in a few weeks).

We haven't tried (yet) the packages on other distros than Ubuntu Lucid, hopefully it will work without changes on a recent Debian and a few previous Ubuntu releases, but there might be some minor issues and we need your help to run the tests on other setups.

If you have bugs to fill, you can go to:

https://jira.nuxeo.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&mode=hide&pid=10032&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=priority&resolution=-1&component=10622

If you want to help fine-tune the packages, you can fetch the build scripts using Mercurial this way:

$ hg clone http://hg.nuxeo.org/tools/nuxeo-packaging/

Many thanks to Mathieu Guillaume and Julien Carsique for writing the new packaging scripts. There is some more work to do, but I'm sure the result will be great.

Please give us feedback, as this will keep us motivated to improve the packages!
