View Full Version : [other] Karmic and Alfresco.. What happend?

November 4th, 2009, 11:14 PM
Hi there.

I know that Jaunty comes with the possibility to install Alfresco-community from the canonical repository. After upgrading 9.04 server to 9.10 server the alfresco application was removed from my system and there's no alfresco-community package in the canonical repository.

What's happening? Alfresco is no longer supported by canonical? I thought they were working together to delliver an ECM to the ubuntu community.

By the way ubuntu server + Alfresco is a killer system because these are two excellent products dellivered to the community.

I saw some posts talking about alfresco in the cloud with ubuntu in Amazon webservices... but I couldn't understand it.

Thanks all for your help and any help is welcome.
Best regards from Portugal.

I agree. I have Alfresco working on a test Windows machine but would like to roll it out across the department on a Ubuntu box running 9.10.

I could manually configure it but that takes too long and I'll probably mess it all up along the way.

Any news on when it'll reappear in the Ubuntu repositories?

It's in the partner repository now as alfresco-community :D

I still can't find it for karmic in the partner repo (Sources (http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/partner/source/Sources) or Packages 64 (http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/partner/binary-amd64/Packages))

whereas it's still there for jaunty (Sources (http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/partner/source/Sources))

Am I missing someting or was it removed overnight ?

I am also keen to try out Alfresco under Ubuntu, but would prefer to wait for it to be a "standard" install. When are we likely to see in back in the repository?
Does anyone have any info on the reason for withdrawal?

Still no sign of progress on the packages.
I have found that Jarhed Ottley's blog (http://jared.ottleys.net/alfresco/alfresco-community-3-2-ubuntu-package-explained) is a good source of info.
I finally managed to get Alfresco installed manually, following a fairly detailed "how-to" on Howtoforge (http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-alfresco-community-3.3-on-ubuntu-server-10.04-lucid-lynx). But I would much prefer to manage it through the apt package tree.
