How can I find which Linux distros have specific Apps. Movestuff, LinuxNewbie

Hi All. This is my 1st Q post... likely simple stupid Qs, but whatever.

I'd like to use a Debian system. but try as I may can't get past the installer.
Soo I found ubuntu/kubuntu is deb based, but want typo3 & the lampp server,db package.
I want to get an outo'the box distro which includes Typo3 and all the lampxx (?) apps for CMS net programming to load to net.

All replies welcome
Thx movestuff

If the packages that you need are not included, you can install them very easily using the Debian-esque package manager.

is probably more revealing by what distros are not represented. Either the package is extremely easy to compile or there is probably a good reason why the two biggest enterprise distros (RH&Suse) are not represented. While I do not know typo3 I would suspect that the later is more likely.

MoveStuff, Welcome to LQ.

It doesn't matter whether or not a package comes with a distro, because you can always install from source
You need to have the
, linux standard base package installed. Then you can install from source. If you use Debian, which has 26,000 available packages, you'll have what you need. You would use
as your package manager, and use the search button.
will automatically install any dependencies for you.

That package is in Debian. Did you try using Debians graphical installer ? it might appear a bit easier for you. boot your Debian installer CD/DVD and at the boot prompt type installgui
boot: installgui
then press <ENTER>, Debians installer should launch with a GUI instead of text based.
user@it-etch:~$ aptitude search typo3
p   typo3                          - Powerful content management framework (Meta package)                        
p   typo3-dummy                    - Empty TYPO3 site package for starting a new site from scratch               
v   typo3-src                      -                                                             
p   typo3-src-4.2                  - Powerful content management framework (Core)                                

user@it-etch:~$ apt-cache policy typo3
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 4.2.3-1
  Version table:
     4.2.3-1 0
        500 lenny/main Packages
Not sure what you mean by lampxx

to setup a lamp server in Debian I just do this (su - to root first)..

aptitude update
aptitude install apache2 apache2-mpm-worker apache2-utils libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-mysql mysql-server-5.0 mysql-client-5.0

once that install is completed, I should have a working LAMP server. (hasn't failed me yet)

I hope you have not been stuck here for over a year!!...

If you tell us what issue you have with the Debian installer, I'm sure someone can help.

For a listing of what is included with various distros, you can look at Distrowatch, and usually the home page for the distro.
