On a previous post I described how to make mosquitto debian packages. This turned out to be a bit problematic, so I’ve now put up an experimental debian repository for mosquitto. It includes packages for the i386, amd64, armel and raspberry pi (raspbian armhf ) architectures.

It’s worth repeating that this is experimental – there are package changes that haven’t been vetted by a Debian developer so it’s possible something will break. I’ve tested myself and had no problems so far.

To use the new repository you should first import the repository package signing key:

wget http://repo.mosquitto.org/debian/mosquitto-repo.gpg.key
sudo apt-key add mosquitto-repo.gpg.key

Then make the repository available to apt:

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
Then one of the following, depending on which version of debian you are using:
sudo wget http://repo.mosquitto.org/debian/mosquitto-wheezy.list
sudo wget http://repo.mosquitto.org/debian/mosquitto-jessie.list

 

Then update apt information:

apt-get update

And discover what mosquitto packages are available:

apt-cache search mosquitto

Or just install:

apt-get install mosquitto
