Debian Package Management Presentation

Debian GNU/Linux, apt, and You
Presentation by Bob Carpenter


Apt (Advanced Packaging tool) and dpkg are the heart of the Debian packaging system. With it, you can easily install anything from an individual program to a desktop environment (i.e.: KDE/Gnome) or even upgrade your entire system!

The main tools I will be addressing are:

  • apt-get

  • apt-setup

  • dpkg

  • alien


Hopefully, after this discussion, you'll see that Debian can make your Linux life just a little easier.
