OBM on Debian Squeeze
Current and stable version of OBM
Debian squeeze support is available since version 188.8.131.52 (and >= 184.108.40.206) Modify your /etc/apt/sources.list by adding "contrib" and "non-free" to the Debian repositories. Then add your OBM repositories of choice.

Installation on Debian Squeeze
For sun-java6-jdk you need to have contrib and non-free.
Remove exim4 because of confilts with postfix
apt-get remove exim4 exim4-config
With aptitude, you must install perl. It is not needed with apt-get.
aptitude install perl
If your locale is fr_FR.UTF8 (command line locale), be aware that postgresql cannot be installed if no other compatible locale is installed first. The correct workaround is :
Then select en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 (with the space button). You can keep fr_FR.UTF8 as your default locale for the system.
Install the postgresql server(or the mysql server) :
apt-get install postgresql(mysql-server)
With mysql you will have to install php5-mysql :
apt-get install php5-mysql
Please ensure you have a fully-qualified domain name.
Exemple of something you musn't have :
$ hostname -f hostname: Name or service not known
If you got this message, it seems that you have a different hostname setup in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts.
wget -q http://deb.obm.org/obmgpg.pub -O - | apt-key add - aptitude update aptitude install obm
Alternatively, if you want opush and all OBM features on a single server, you can use the "obm-full" package:
wget -q http://deb.obm.org/obmgpg.pub -O - | apt-key add - aptitude update aptitude install obm-full
You could obviously use apt-get instead of aptitude.
With PostgreSQL, you may need to modify postgresql.conf and replace max_prepared_transactions default 0 by a non-null value; for example :
max_prepared_transactions = 100
... and restart postgresql
Upgrading to OBM3
If you're upgrading from OBM 2.x to OBM 3, you need to add a package repository containing some backports required by OBM.
To do so, modify your /etc/apt/sources.list/ and add
deb http://deb.obm.org/squeeze-backports squeeze main
And you should be up and running for your upgrade. Then if you use Opush smartphone synchronization feature, you must upgrade Opush first separately. Please have a look at our upgrading notes before process.
You may read this, which describes known issues with obm installation and functionalities.
Then it's done! You should now read the Getting Started guide.
