Debian-Ubuntu installation by packages¶
- Debian-Ubuntu installation by packages
The Foreman packages should work on the following Debian-based Linux distributions:
- Debian Linux 6.0 (Squeeze)
- Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS
Foreman might still work on these distros, but it has not been tested (let us know if it works for you):
- Debian Linux 5.0 (Lenny)
- Ubuntu Linux 11.04
- Ubuntu Linux 10.10
If you encounter any errors during the installation, please file a bug report!
Add one of the following lines to your
/etc/apt/sources.list (alternatively in a separate file in
# Stable packages # Debian Squeeze deb http://deb.theforeman.org/ squeeze stable # Ubuntu Precise deb http://deb.theforeman.org/ precise stable # Nightly builds. Beware: HERE BE DRAGONS # Debian Squeeze deb http://deb.theforeman.org/ squeeze nightly # Ubuntu Precise deb http://deb.theforeman.org/ precise nightly
You can add this key with
apt-key add foreman.asc
or combine downloading and registering:
wget -q http://deb.theforeman.org/foreman.asc -O- | apt-key add -
The key fingerprint is

Remember to update your package lists!
The packages are now split by gem dependencies - there are 11 foreman* packages to choose from. These are:Main package
Installation instructions are:
# Install packages (adjust additional packages as needed) apt-get install foreman foreman-sqlite3 foreman-libvirt # Copy sample db config to /etc cp /usr/share/foreman/config/database.yml.example /etc/foreman/database.yml # Review settings and DB config vi /etc/foreman/settings.yaml /etc/foreman/database.yml # Perform initial DB setup su - foreman -s /bin/bash -c /usr/share/foreman/extras/dbmigrate
The packages should auto-run db:migrate if
/etc/foreman/database.yml exists. So the initial db:migrate is only needed during first install, upgrades should just work.
Upgrading from 0.4.2¶
Upgrading from 0.4.2 to 1.0 has been tested on Debian 6 (32 and 64 bit) and we expect that simply upgrading should work fine:
apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade
The packages include a db:migrate, so your database will be migrated too. However, please note the new split-package architecture - you may want check and see if any of the new dependencies fit your usecase(s).
apt-cache search foreman
