Trying to install aegir

Hi Folks,

Clean Debian lenny installation

having a tough time installing aegir

Specifically configuring backports:

Adding backports

You should also configure backports repositories, for Drush. 4.4 is now in unstable and 3.3 is in squeeze and lenny-backports.

I want to have drush 4.4 so I have to add the repository for "unstable"

Debian make it easy to add squeeze and lenny backports as seen here

What line do I add to my sources list to get the "unstable" repository ?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

It is of course possible to add 'wheezy' ( and / or 'sid' ) binary to
/etc/apt/sources.list , but it will trash Debian Lenny.
( 'drush' would then install 100 wheezy packages as dependency.)

But this will work smoothly :
1) Add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list :
deb-src sid main non-free contrib
( Which is for the source code only.)

# apt-get build-dep drush
( And as you probably have all the dependencies, nothing gets installed.)

# apt-get -b source drush=4.4-1
A Debian Lenny package is created in the current directory : drush_4.4-1_all.deb
( All this only takes a few seconds.)

3) (Two dependencies : # apt-get install php5-cli php5-common )
# dpkg -i drush-4.4 drush_4.4-1_all.deb
