Install the Bazaar client on Debian

by Pierre-Yves Landuré last modified Nov 11, 2017 09:32

This howto describe the setup of the latest version of the Bazaar client (bzr) on Debian

This howto is tested on:

  • Debian 6.0 Squeeze
  • Debian 7.0 Wheezy


Install the software dependencies :

command apt-get install build-essential python-pip python-crypto \
    python-paramiko python-configobj rsync cython python-pyrex ca-certificates

Install the libraries specific to Debian 6.0 Squeeze if possible:

if [ -n "$(command apt-cache pkgnames libgmp3c2)" ]; then
  command apt-get -y install libgmp3c2

Install the software :

command easy_install bzr

If the software is not available immediatly, it will be after the next login.
