Installing SIP SIMPLE Client on Debian 5.0 (Lenny)

..raw:: html

<a href="http://ag-projects.com/">AG Projects</a> is providing a pretty nice <a href="http://sipsimpleclient.com/">CLI based Open Source SIP phone</a> to the world. The installation instructions can be a confusing mess.

Here's a short summary on how to install it on a clean, brand new Debian Lenny installation. Details are correct at time of writing ;-)

First import the AG-Projects key into apt so we know the packages can be trusted.

`bash wget http://download.ag-projects.com/agp-debian-gpg.key apt-key add agp-debian-gpg.key `

Then open the file /etc/apt/sources.list and change al mention of "lenny" into "sid". Also add the following to the end of the file:

` # AG Projects software deb     http://ag-projects.com/debian unstable main deb-src http://ag-projects.com/debian unstable main `

Then it's time to upgrade to sid

`bash apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade `

And finally it's time to install SIP Simple ```bash apt-get update apt-get install python-sipsimple sipsimple-cli
