There are several convenient ways to obtain the Citadel system.
The easiest and quickest way to get Citadel running is to use Easy Install, a one-step installer that automatically downloads, installs, and configures the complete Citadel system on your computer. Easy Install eliminates the need to compile source code manually, and it eliminates package dependency problems.
Debian and Ubuntu ship Citadel packages. However, they may be much older than the software available on Easy Install. You just need to run
sudo apt-get install citadel-suite
and follow the questions.
You also can try our debian packages. You'll find i386 and amd64 packages and an apt-source repository there.
