Installing Peerguardian Linux on Ubuntu 10.10

Here are some quick notes on how to install pgl under Ubuntu 10.10.

1. Add the gpg key to the apt keyring

gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 9C0042C8
gpg --export --armor 9C0042C8 | sudo apt-key add -

2. Add the repository sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jre-phoenix/ppa/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jre-phoenix/ppa/ubuntu maverick main

3. Update packages & install pgl

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd
(Answer the questions during installation process.)

4. To check status: -

sudo pglcmd status

  1. Thanks, i was looking for this. An easier way to do this though (exactly the same but just easier, as it does all the keyserver stuff itself):

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jre-phoenix

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd

    or can copy and paste this line and do it in one hit:

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jre-phoenix; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install pgld pglcmd
