Ansible 2 On Debian Wheezy.

Today was an interesting day.

I needed ansible ( >= 1.9.2) for a quick research project that resided on Debian Wheezy.

The current version on backports is 1.7.2.

Here is my steps to compiling a Debian package from git.

export DEBFULLNAME="Brent Clark"
export DEBEMAIL=""
sudo apt-get install cdbs debhelper dpkg-dev git-core reprepro  python-setuptools devscripts build-essential asciidoc -y
cd /tmp
git clone git://
cd /tmp/ansible 
git submodule update --init --recursive
make deb

Ansible will too need these packages.

sudo apt-get install python-crypto python-httplib2 python-jinja2 python-markupsafe python-paramiko python-six python-yaml sshpass -y

And then, to install.
dpkg -i /tmp/ansible/deb-build/unstable/ansible_2.0.0-0.git201508210336.9bb95b5.devel~unstable_all.deb

And then to ensure all is working, run:

 ansible localhost -m setup
