Firstly, add the Tryphon repository in /etc/apt/sources.list
Install the package software-properties-common

Download the archive on the official website and install the dependencies package for Rivendell with aptitude:
- gawk

I recommend that people read this first:

On Debian installing software from random websites is a bad habit. It's always better to use software from the official Debian repositories if at all possible.

Agreed. Those ppa's are a time bomb. It will probably burst with a major upgrade.

While this is generally true, Rivendell is an automated radio station and is best used in a dedicated system only used for Rivendell, not as a program installed on your everyday distro. As such, you would be crazy to do major updates once you get it working and be sure to have a full backup before doing any updates such as security.
If this guide works, good for you. The Rivendell wiki only has instructions for Squeeze, although the repo contains packages for current Debian releases including a sid one. :o

The PPA mentioned only contains a driver for AudioScience broadcast cards.
“ computer users can be divided into 2 categories:
Those who have lost data
...and those who have not lost data YET ”
Remember to BACKUP!

Thanks ,
I am glad you have clarified on this ,
Rivendell is an automated radio station and is best used in a dedicated system only used for Rivendell, not as a program installed on your everyday distro.

I think this is a important factor , that readers should be aware of and understand.
Thank you
