This thread is since outdated. The openHAB snapshots/unstable builds have once again moved to a less restricted repository. The announcement below is superseded.
To always find the latest installation instructions, please consult the official documentation. The following article will always be up to date:
good news but also a breaking change for the “snapshot apt repository” users:
From now on the openHAB 2 snapshots are available as “unstable” distribution from the official openHAB 2 apt repository at Bintray.
The setup is very similar to the beta release setup, which is described in the official docs: http://docs.openhab.org/installation/linux.html#package-repository-installation.
You just have to use “unstable” instead of “testing” for the distribution name:
Add the openHAB 2 repository to your systems apt sources list choosing the unstable distribution (will overwrite your existing openhab2.list)
echo 'deb http://dl.bintray.com/openhab/apt-repo2 unstable main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openhab2.list
Additionally, you need to add the openHAB 2 Bintray repository key to your package manager (if not yet done)
wget -qO - 'https://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjectPublicKey?username=openhab' | sudo apt-key add -
We are really happy about this change because we thus can provide “unstable”, “testing” and “stable” (not yet, but soon) releases with one repository.
Now the breaking change: The snapshot apt repository at cloudbees will be shutdown in the next days. As soon as is PR is merged: https://github.com/openhab/openhab-distro/pull/369.
Hence snapshot users should quickly make the transition to the new repository.
The good news: Users of the beta release don’t have to change anything!
Thanks for your patience.
We appreciate your feedback.
PS: Me and @Benjy developed the new debian packaging and moved it to it’s own project https://github.com/openhab/openhab-linuxpkg. Please open issues regarding the debian packages or the apt repository at this projects issue tracker.
