The computer they prefer!
DoudouLinux is based on Debian Linux. To build our children’s computing environment, we need to build software installation packages, known as Debian packages. As we have many custom packages, we have setup a Debian repository currently compatible with Debian Lenny, Debian Squeeze and most likely any recent Debian-based Linux distribution like Ubuntu. Its purpose is to ease the compilation of an environment similar to the CDROM or USB key one. If you are just using the DoudouLinux CDROM or its USB key, you do not need this repository!
To include DoudouLinux packages into your system, you can download them one by one, but the preferred method is to declare our repository in your system. To do this, add the following line in your repository configuration file
/etc/apt/sources.list or in a new file in the directory
For Debian Lenny
deb http://debian.doudoulinux.org/ lenny main
For Debian Squeeze
deb http://debian.doudoulinux.org/ squeeze main
Note that source packages are available as well for people interested in fetching our source code. If this is your case, also copy the correct line among the following ones:
deb-src http://debian.doudoulinux.org/ lenny main deb-src http://debian.doudoulinux.org/ squeeze main
You also have to grab the repository key in order to authenticate downloaded packages. The recommended method is to install the doudoulinux-keyring package after the DoudouLinux repository is declared, then reload the repository information:
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install doudoulinux-keyring $ sudo apt-get update
Note: apt-get will ask you whether you really want to install this non-authenticated package. You have to acknowledge, this is totally risk free.
Another method consists in downloading the key manually then declaring it to the package key manager with the following command:
$ wget -O - http://debian.doudoulinux.org/doudoulinux.asc | sudo apt-key add -
