Package Repository

Packages provided by the Grml team are available from the Grml repository.

Note that using the Grml repository on standard Debian systems is not recommended. If you just want our console configuration, read "Make console work comfortable".

# Signing key is available in grml-debian-keyring
#  deb     [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg] grml-stable main
#  deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg] grml-stable main
#  deb     [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg] grml-testing main
#  deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg] grml-testing main

If you are running Debian stretch or later, you may want to use the following .sources file, which will enforce the suite name and signing keys:

Types: deb deb-src
Suites: grml-stable grml-testing
Architectures: i386 amd64
Components: main
Signed-By: /usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg

Then the following preferences file will keep packages from GRML to replace normal Debian packages, in /etc/apt/preferences.d/grml.pref:

Package: *
Pin: release a=grml-stable
Pin-Priority: 100

Package: *
Pin: release a=grml-testing
Pin-Priority: 100

Also note that you may have trouble installing the grml-debian-keyring package as APT will complain about the missing key. A workaround is to download it directly:

sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/grml-archive-keyring.gpg
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grml-debian-keyring

Wallpapers and other media files provided by Grml

Wallpapers, CD covers and similar media files are available in the mediakit repository.


The changelogs moved to their own webpage.
