8Those from the Linux (and almost all unices) are used to first look if the
9software they want is packaged for their distribution. And, yes, there are
10distributions which package Django!
11
12If your distribution is listed below, you are in luck, there's a package
13for you.

15Debian
16======
17On 25-10-2006 Django hit the Debian unstable archive, and it entered testing
18on time, so the next Debian stable release (etch) will include it!
19
20If you are running `etch`_, `sid`_ or have apt sources for them you can simply run:
21   apt-get install python-django
22
23Or use your favorite package manager, it's up to you!
24
25Due to policy changes on the python packaging on Debian you are not likely to
26succeed installing those packages on sarge (current stable release).
27
28You will also need at least one database backend whose package names are:
29* python-psycopg
30* python-psycopg2
31* python-pysqlite2
32* python-mysqldb
33
34And for the ImageField, which requires PIL: python-imaging
35Also python-ipython is recommended to provide an enhaced shell to manage.py
