This article is co-authored by Jérôme Warnier, from work mostly done by him with my occasional support. Kudos go to him. We couldn't find any valuable manual to install Redmine 2.1 on Debian Squeeze, and we sure met a lot of resistance along the way, so we came up with the following step-by-step guide...

Let's say you got confused by a misleading fake-RAID feature on an HP Blade server and you decided to ignore that the Ubuntu installer was telling you it found 2 disks while it was supposed (if it was actual hardware RAID) to be detecting only one. And let's say you are lucky to have 3 disks, and you only one to use two as the RAID array (and they do not contain your operating system, i.e. the / partition). You might wonder: "And now what? S**** you, HP!" (that last bit is if you left panic get you, of course).
The recommended filesystem for Squid on OpenSolaris is ZFS: http://wiki.squid-cache.org/BestOsForSquid It is also recommended to disable the atime property on the filesystem holding the cache, and you may want to avoid using any type of RAID.

You have then to play a bit with the Subversion repository. So, update or export your xams-0.0.x and xams-0.0.x-debian repositories. Done?

To setup NUT on Debian, you first need to know what kind of UPS you have, and how it is/will be connected to your Debian machine. We will not yet analyse how to do monitoring over the network, but only on the machine physically connected to the UPS, which we suppose has been installed under Debian GNU/Linux (tested on Sarge). First, install the package nut (the

I don't know whether the following is or isn't mandatory, but these steps were enough to give a good result.
