I had trouble finding clear instructions on installing Puppet onto Debian Sarge, so I thought I’d document how I did it.
First, install all the Ruby stuff:
aptitude install irb1.8 libreadline-ruby1.8 libruby libruby1.8 rdoc1.8 ruby ruby1.8 ruby1.8-dev libopenssl-ruby1.8
Then, install RubyGems. The latest version can be found here: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126
Set an environment variable for your proxy ( if required ):
Next, download and install RubyGems:
wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/20989/rubygems-0.9.4.tgz tar xzf rubygems-0.9.4.tgz cd rubygems-0.9.4 ruby setup.rb
Finally, we can install puppet (after updating RubyGems):
gem update gem install -b puppet
It’s pretty straight forward really. Although it would be easier with aptitude install puppet, but hey, you can’t have everything.
