hotspot with chillispot

Postby iker » 2009-10-27 15:38

I´ve been trying to install chillispot and freeradius with apt-get command. However, even though i´ve found some how-to with this, the packages appear as not found.

Have someone install chillispot or freeradius successfully?

chillispot isn't in lenny or testing/squeeze, so you would have to backport it from sid.

1) Add ONLY a "deb-src ..." line for sid to your sources.list. 2) apt-get update 3) apt-get install build-essential; apt-get build-dep packagename;apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install
the resultant debs.

craigevils response seemed a little cryptic for a noob like me.

here's what I did
again I'm really nooby but here goes
you will need to be far enough along for debian to access the internet as all the required packges are downloaded

add this line
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main
to file
/etc/apt/sources.list

see http://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/chillispot/download
for servers closer to you
ie for USA server line should look like deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main

ok save the sources.list file

type apt-get update

then apt-get install chillispot

at this point I'm at the setup screen for chillispot as outlined in the guide
http://www.cahilig.net/2008/08/05/howto ... ebian-etch


I've been fighting this for about a week to make it this far so good luck.

is sid newer then etch

is it etch,sid,lenny

it looked like a newer package if chillispot was in etch so wouldn't we want to backport from etch??

It is etch = old stable ; lenny = stable ; Squeeze = testing ; Sid = always unstable
When squeeze goes stable , lenny becomes old stable , testing gets a new name , and Sid will still be Sid :)

A Backport is when a newer version of some package is built for a specific distro. There is an etch Backport repo and a separate Backport repo for Lenny, Squeeze ( testing ) doesn't need one , and Sid is still Sid !
Did I mention Experimental ?

ok sid has the newer version chillispot_1.0-10
while etch has older chillispot_1.0-4

but sid= always unstable or exparmental

so should a noob grab the etch version?

and this termiology
There is an etch Backport repo and a separate Backport repo for Lenny

backport repo?

"I'm proud to announce the start of the lenny-backports distribution."

I guess they call it a distribution , I always thought of it as a separate repo. Oh well , I was trying not to learn anything new today :)
