  • This page is place holder for Thoughts and ways to tackle package management based on a call from Red1 on
  • This Hackathon is supposed to be held as a part of OSCON - Open Source Conference in the capital city of Malaysia this May 31st thru June 3.
  • In our preliminary discussions the community here are thinking of making ADempiere as one of the Hackathon candidates. The task for local hackers to accomplish on it is to make ADempiere installable crazy by a Yum, Apt or RPM.
  • Now we gather thoughts on what will be the technical issues. The end of the Hackathon we hope to produce a site that will allow the world to install ADempiere without any setup on their part. We can call it YummyERP.
  • Why : Making Adempiere user friendly for GNU/Linux users.
  • By Whom : Folks who wants to learn and help how package management works.
  • What: At the end of it get Adempiere with .deb, RPM and repos for apt and Yum


It is a 3 step process

  1. Installer
  2. Package Management
  3. Repo Setup


After checking out the Windows installer by Kai for AD , i said to myself i need something like this !!, While searching and digging the web i hit upon this cool installer technology from Bitrock ,
i have already written to them to send across a free license . You can check the alpha installer for AD from start testing and report back to me satyaakam at gmail dot com .

Ok i got a community license from Bitrock and our installer uses it too thanks Bitrock!

Now you can download the following packages , start testing and report back to me about how the installer performs

  • ADempiere-342s-linux-installer.bin ( 32 bit Version)
  • ADempiere-342s-0.x86_64.rpm ( For RPM based distros )
  • ADempiere-342s-linux-x64-installer.bin ( Should work on any Distro)

Prerequisites: Java installed , Postgres installed

Unlike the Windows this installer for the time being only does installation of Adempiere in a location it does not install or check for Postgres, Java. Future release will have this included .
