For a while we have been working on packaging the Dune core modules for Debian. Now, a few days ago the first packages of Dune 2.2 have entered Debian Testing, which mean that they will be part of the next Debian release ‘Wheezy’. If you have a Debian Testing installation you can install the packages right now with
sudo apt-get install libdune-grid-dev libdune-istl-dev libdune-localfunctions-dev
(which will also pull in the remaining packages automatically).
Many thanks go to Ansgar Burchardt, who did most of the packaging work.
