I want to run RT 4.2.x on Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty). Ubuntu utopic, which
is not yet released, includes RT 4.2.4
http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/request-tracker4. I don’t see any
backports to 14.04 (trusty), which runs 4.0.19:
- Does 14.04/trusty’s dpkg (ie, pre-packaged) install of 4.0.19 offer
me benefits towards an install of 4.2.x? Possibly as an upgrade
path? (eg: trusty’s apt-get install of RT 4.0.19 installs a -long-
list of package dependencies. I’m wondering if this will save me a
bunch of work over #3, below?)
- Are there any trust backports of RT 4.2.x available for me to download?
- Should I just skip all of the above and install from the 4.2.6
- Can some combination of #1 and #3 (getting #1 to handle all the
dependencies, #3 to install the actual core binaries/etc) possibly
I have a relatively-seasoned team to sysadmin the install for #3 and
maybe #4, but I’m trying to leverage the “Ubuntu package/dependency”
magic for #1 or #2, if I can.
I’m seeking comments from RT server admins with experience on Ubuntu or
Debian, preferably on Ubuntu 14.04/trusty.
Thanks for any help.
