Installing Drubuntu

This is for Ubuntu 10.10 with the intention of doing primarily Drupal 7 development.

Get the link to the current version of Drubuntu from the Drubuntu project page, and use it thusly:

tar -xzf drubuntu-7.x-10.10-beta1.tar.gz

Then, run it. Enter your password and y for yes as requested (it will often say you may need to enter your password when you won't) and be patient while it installs a hefty development environment, including Git and all the things you will use every day.



The remaining extras from Set up an Ubuntu Development Environment the Agaric Way:

sudo apt-get install vim-gnome
sudo agt-get install libopenssl-ruby rubygems
sudo apt-get install rake
# vlad itself
sudo gem install vlad
sudo gem install hoe
# lynx ubuntu
sudo apt-get install lynx-cur

Lately i needed to use SlimGems to make all this work.

Also follow serverwide vlad deployment scripts setup.

Tidying Up

Set a mysql root password:

mysqladmin -u root password thepasswordyouchoose

Then add that

vi ~/.my.cnf


And because i am no fun whatsoever at parties:
sudo apt-get remove gnome-games-common gbrainy

Experiments (Far From Cannon)

sudo apt-get install rsnapshot

Error during Drubuntu Bootstrap

Greetings, and thanks for the tutorial. I'm getting an error during the bootstrap process despite having applied the patch found here:

It happens just after the Firefox plug in installation, during a Drush process. I get two error messages:

Default browser set back to Firefox. [success]
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function drush_invoke_process_args() in /home/sheldon/workspace/drubuntu/devtools/ on line 46

Any help is appreciated.

Could you tell me how to run the script? what is the command? Run?
