To ensure your can always get the latest NAV package directly from our package repository, you should:
Here's how to do it:
sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-key CE8E05E8 sudo /bin/sh -c "echo 'deb https://nav.uninett.no/debian jessie nav' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nav.list" sudo apt-get update
To install NAV, you can now just run:
sudo apt-get install nav
If you are upgrading from previous NAV versions on Jessie, you may have pulled our modifed
graphite-web package (compatible with Django 1.4) from this repository. This package was, unfortunately, published with a version number that causes it to take precedence over Debian's official version (compatible with Django 1.7). We have tried to take steps to ensure this package will be thrown out and replaced with Debian's official version when upgrading NAV, but if this fails, you may have to replace it manually.
If you need additional help in setting up and configuring Graphite on your NAV server, please refer to the wiki article graphite_on_debian.
If you have problems with the package itself, please report them at https://github.com/uninett/nav-debian/issues. If you want to report bugs in NAV, you can do so at https://github.com/uninett/nav/issues.
The NAV Debian package used to be maintained by Morten Werner Forsbring at http://pkg-nav.alioth.debian.org/ - the package currently maintained by UNINETT is based on his work.
We've built virtual appliances in OVF format for those who want to get quickly started with NAV.
Most popular virtualization environments can import this appliance (Though you may need to use VMWare's OVFTool to import it properly into VMWare).
The appliances are usually built on 64-bit stable versions of Debian GNU/Linux, with NAV installed from the packages available at our APT repository (see the Debian section above). This also means that NAV is easily upgradeable using Debian's aptitude or apt-get tools.
Stable releases are found in the stable/ directory, beta testing releases in the beta/ directory (duh!).
