== Versions ==
#REDIRECT [[Installation/Debian]]
These instructions are for Debian Lenny 5.0 or Squeeze 6.0.  You will need to make sure that your username is on the sudo authorized list located at '/etc/sudoers'.
== Build Tools ==
To install build tools, run the following (includes the gcc and xml parsing dependencies):
<pre>sudo apt-get install build-essential libxslt1.1 libxslt1-dev libxml2 libreadline5-dev libyaml-dev</pre>
== CURL ==
You need to install the "dev" headers. To install them, run the following:
<pre>sudo apt-get install curl libcurl4-openssl-dev</pre>
== Git ==
To install Git on **Debian 6.0**, run the following:
<pre>sudo apt-get install git-core</pre>
To install Git 1.7 on **Debian 5.0**, add Debian Backports repository and install it with [http://backports.debian.org/Instructions/ these instructions].
<pre>sudo apt-get install -t lenny-backports git-core</pre>
== Ruby ==
=== RVM ===
You can install Ruby on a clean per user basis via [RVM](https://rvm.io/). This is currently recommended to get the latest Rubygems version.
curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
# load rvm here - search the output of previous command
Read `rvm requirements` and ensure `libyaml-dev` is installed. Then install Ruby with:
<pre>rvm install 1.9.3-p448 # install correct ruby version</pre>
These instructions are from [https://rvm.io/rvm/install/ this guide].
You still need a system Ruby so run:
<pre>sudo apt-get install ruby-full</pre>
To install RVM and Ruby 1.9.3, as your normal user (the one which Diaspora should run under), run (I was getting an error so I had to run curl -k which told me to "echo insecure >> ~/.curlrc")
For Debian 6.0 users who wish to install Ruby 1.9.3 (or any edition for that matter) on RVM, compile may [fail](https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/packages/openssl/) due to openssl version higher than 1.0.0. For that, run:
rvm pkg install openssl
rvm remove ruby-1.9.3-p448 #just in case
rvm install ruby-1.9.3-p448 --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr
== MySQL ==
This installs MySQL, you also need the libmysqlclient-dev and libmysql-ruby packages.
<pre>sudo apt-get install mysql-server libmysqlclient-dev libmysql-ruby</pre>
== PostgreSQL ==
This installs libraries for PostgreSQL support.
<pre>sudo apt-get install libpq-dev libpq5</pre>
== OpenSSL ==
You already have OpenSSL installed but you need the libssl-dev and libopenssl-ruby package too:
<pre>sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libopenssl-ruby</pre>
For Debian 6.0 and later, libopenssl-ruby is provided through the virtual package libruby or libruby1.8.
== ImageMagick ==
To install ImageMagick, run the following:
<pre>sudo apt-get install imagemagick libmagick9-dev</pre>
Note that libmagick9-dev is provided through libmagickwand-dev.
== Redis ==
Debian 6.0 stable repositories have an older version of Redis.  If you are running Debian Testing, you can use the repository:
<pre>sudo apt-get install redis-server</pre>
Otherwise, if you're running Stable, use the version from the backports (<http://packages.debian.org/squeeze-backports/redis-server>). Read up on how to do that here: <http://backports-master.debian.org/Instructions/>.
== RubyGems ==
'''Not needed for an RVM installation.'''
To install RubyGems, run the following:
<pre>wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/r/rubygems/rubygems_1.8.24-1_all.deb -O rubygems.deb && sudo dpkg -i rubygems.deb</pre>
== Bundler ==
To install Bundler, run the following, **(skip the sudo for a RVM installation)**:
<pre>sudo gem install bundler</pre>
If you installed via RVM and gem is not found, run the following
    bash -l
    rvm use ruby-1.9.3-p448@global
To get bundle to work with the system Ruby, you might need to make a symbolic link:
<pre>sudo ln -s /var/lib/gems/1.8/bin/bundle /usr/local/bin/bundle</pre>
This is not needed on **Debian 5.0** when ruby is installed from source.
== ffi ==
Note: If you get an error in the next step try to run
<pre>sudo apt-get install libffi-ruby libffi-dev</pre>
and try the step again.
== SQLite libraries and header files ==
<pre>sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev</pre>
== NodeJS ==
You will also need nodejs. Currently this is not available in the stable release of debian 6 so here are instructions on installing from source.
    git clone https://github.com/joyent/node.git
    cd node
    git checkout v0.6.8
    ./configure --openssl-libpath=/usr/lib/ssl
    make test
    sudo make install
These instructions are from [http://sekati.com/etc/install-nodejs-on-debian-squeeze here].
Last of all, you need to install the execjs gem
<pre>sudo gem install execjs</pre>
'''Congrats! You have all your dependencies installed.''' Proceed to [[Notes On Installing and Running Diaspora]].
