inline:Portal/IDB/icon-apt-32x32.png The main goal of this portal is to help you learn to install and update your software. It explains how to manage software packages. This portal is fit for a beginner. So it uses a simplified informatic language. We recommend reading the [:QuickInstall:installation of Debian] page before you 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["Backports"] - Your [:DebianStable:Debian stable] runs great but softwares are a little bit outdated compared to other distributions ?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.
