debian

Debian is an operating system for your Computer. It consists of the Linux kernel and GNU extensions. It is the distribution with the most binary packages available and is very flexible and extensible. Its packaging system is superior.

By now I’m an active debian maintainer. I am providing some chess related binary packages for the Debian GNU Linux system.

Not all packages I build can be included in the distribution. You can find my unofficial packages here. There are many reasons:

  • Experimental Software
  • License issues
  • My packaging is experimental, it works for me but is not of the quality it would take to get into distribution

Here is a list of packages you can get of my web server. Official packages might be found here earlier than in the distribution, because of quality checks:
