Daily built packages

Bitlbee offers daily builds for debian like linux distros. They are located at http://code.bitlbee.org/debian/.

Since these are binary packages they may not be usable for you if you're using a less common platform. Right now, 32-/64-bit Intel and ARM platforms are supported. Due to capacity constraints, ARM packages are only built for a small number of distributions/versions.

The most common way of adding the BitlBee repository, is by adding it to your sources.list file, located at /etc/apt/sources.list. Alternatively you may create a new file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bitlbee.list.

The line you need to add might look something like this for a 32-bits system:

deb http://code.bitlbee.org/debian/devel/squeeze/i386/ ./

And for a 64-bit version:

deb http://code.bitlbee.org/debian/devel/squeeze/amd64/ ./

Or if you're using an ARM-based machine:

deb http://code.bitlbee.org/debian/devel/squeeze/armel/ ./

The devel subdirectory means that it is the main development branch of bitlbee. The squeeze subdirectory means that it is intended for the Squeeze (6.0) release of Debian and the i386 subdirectory means that it is intended for an i386 (32 bit) version of the operating system. You can check if you need 32 or 64-bits using the uname -m command.

After adding the repository and the GPG key (see below) do sudo apt-get update and then install with sudo apt-get install bitlbee (aptitude may be used instead of apt-get).

Builds are currently available for:

(This list was last updated in February 2014 and is likely to get stale. Always check the actual repository if you want to be sure.)

For the GPG key, copy-paste the following into your terminal

sudo apt-key add - << EOF
