Byobu on Debian Lenny

Apparently it is possible to use Byobu even on Debian. It was to be expected, as it should be fairly distribution-independent. You need to install screen, python-newt and then you can run:

sudo dpkg -i byobu_3.16-0ubuntu1_all.deb

Of course the package has to be downloaded from an Ubuntu mirror first 😉
And the result is:

[1] oliver@ymir:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
