You can try, but it’ll be a real adventure.
First off, Reddit requires Python 2.6. This isn’t available at all in any released version of Debian Linux — it is available in Debian squeeze (experimental), but our local packages are not yet available for that release at all, so I cannot recommend attempting to upgrade to it. You can probably compile and install it in your home directory, though; see http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Python for details.[/quote]Well, it was installed by a programmer that I hired, although he had lots of difficulties as expected since the VPS is running Debian 4.0. It had generally worked ok, although with a bunch of strange errors that would always be solved by reloading the page, like memcached errors in Pylon, or random “internal server error” messages. I ended up breaking things by trying to upgrade memcached to 1.4.4.
Unfortunately, the newest version of Reddit is very poorly documented and apparently has lots of dependencies that don’t play well with this version of Debian, so he’s going to roll back to the previous version that we had running.
