i updated my debian server to the newest stable release called stretch. And now i found out that perforce don´t provide debian packages for stretch.

There is only a jessie directory:

I´m using this in my perforce.sources.list in the subfolder sources.list.d in /etc/apt/:
deb http://package.perforce.com/apt/debian jessie release

But after apt-get update apt-cache search is not finding any perforce packages.
I tested this with replacing jessie to stretch in sources.list file but there i get only the error, that the URl was not found.

Could you give me more information how to handle this?

best regards

Try downloading p4d directly:

Then start p4d manually
chmod 755 p4d
./p4d -r `pwd` -p 20172 -J journal -L log -d
p4 -p localhost:20172 info

Oh no sry.
On my servers i only use packaged software.
I hope that there will be a package for stretch soon.

Hi Darkentik, no package for Debian stretch on the horizon.  I've added your name to an existing request for Debian stretch.

If this is for p4d, it sorta creeps me out that there are packages for that anyway because it's pretty easy to 'yum update' or 'apt-get update' and inadvertently update p4d and break everything, especially if your Linux servers are patched by someone else (IT). The 'nothing but packages' policy seems weird.

SDP seems like the safer way to go (https://swarm.worksh...ce-software-sdp)
