WordPress in Gentoo


Peter Westwood has created a WordPress ebuild for the Gentoo Linux system, like I do. The ebuild currently has some weird dependencies, but that seems be due to some sort of web application framework they’re using. To install WordPress on Gentoo now simply type the following as root:

emerge sync; emerge wordpress

There is also a Debian package for WordPress which I haven’t had a chance to check out yet. To install WordPress on Debian simply type:

apt-get wordpress

Pretty neat, huh? If you run into any problems with these packages please let the authors know.
