inline:Portal/IDB/icon-apt-32x32.png The main goal of this portal is to learn to install and update your softwares. It explains how to manage software packages. This portal fits for beginner. So it uses a simplified informatic language. We recommand to read [:QuickInstall:installation of Debian] before to start here.
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/quick-reference/ch-package.en.html - Debian official references
["Synaptic"] - A nice graphical tool to manage your package (recommended)
- ["Aptitude"] - The main package management tool for Debian
["DebianUpgrade"] - How to upgrade your distribution
["Backports"] - Your [:DebianStable:Debian stable] runs great but softwares are a little bit outdated compared to other distributions ? That is where backports come in.
