Blog > Packages debian/ubuntu for Rivendell 2.1.4le 25 Jun 2012
Rivendell 2.1.4 Debian and Ubuntu packages are now available on the Tryphon debian repository for :
- Debian : squeeze/stable, wheezy/testing
- Ubuntu : lucid/10.04(LTS), natty/11.04, oneiric/11.10 and precise/12.04(LTS)
Binaries for i386 and amd84 are provided.
Problems with Qt librairies on Ubuntu Oneiric/Precise have been fixed.
Rivendell packages are now available for Oneiric and the latest LTS (Long Term Support) which is Precise.
Rivendell still uses the version 3 of Qt (a library to “manage windows and buttons”). This (old) version is no longer supported by Debian and will not be present in the next stable Debian release (wheezy).
The first consequence is that Rivendell is no longer under Debian unstable/sid where Qt3 is already removed.
We’re working to find a solution.

Step 4 : Add user who needs to use Rivendell in the rivendell group. For example, to use yourself in this group :
