WAND Debian Repo

Included software

About

We maintain an (unofficial) Debian & Ubuntu apt repository containing the latest version of useful network tools that we use regularly.

We aim to support stable/testing/oldstable for Debian and most supported Ubuntu releases.

The packages are built on gitlab and the repo is managed with freight.

Add repo

Enabling the repository in Debian/Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
echo "deb https://packages.wand.net.nz $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wand.list
sudo curl https://packages.wand.net.nz/keyring.gpg -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/wand.gpg
sudo apt-get update

Open vSwitch DPDK Repo

We also maintain an (unofficial) Debian & Ubuntu apt repository for the latest versions of DPDK and Open vSwitch.

Included versions of Open vSwitch

The packages are built on github and the repository is published on cloudsmith and can be enabled with the following commands:

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https curl lsb-release
sudo curl -1sLf https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/wand/openvswitch/gpg.2E801E8CCE233F26.key -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/wand-openvswitch.asc
curl -1sLf "https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/wand/openvswitch/config.deb.txt?distro=$(lsb_release -is)&codename=$(lsb_release -sc)" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wand-openvswitch.list
sudo apt-get update

Open vSwitch DPDK Archive Repo

Older versions of DPDK and Open vSwitch can be found on our archive repo.

Included versions of Open vSwitch

Enabling the archive repository in Debian/Ubuntu (replace ovs-2.12 to lock onto a different version):

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
echo "deb https://packages.wand.net.nz $(lsb_release -sc) ovs-2.12" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ovs-dpdk.list
sudo curl https://packages.wand.net.nz/keyring.gpg -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/wand.gpg
sudo apt-get update

You will probably also want to pin our OVS repo higher than the default repos so that the correct DPDK libraries are loaded, you can do that by adding the following to /etc/apt/preferences:

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.wand.net.nz
Pin-Priority: 700
