  1. Add the following two lines to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kolab.list:

    deb http://obs.kolabsys.com/repositories/Kolab:/16/Debian_8.0/ ./

  2. Import the GPG key used to sign the packages:

    # wget -q -O- https://ssl.kolabsys.com/community.asc | apt-key add -
    
  3. To ensure the Kolab packages have priority over the Debian packages, such as must be the case for PHP as well as Cyrus IMAP, please make sure the APT preferences pin the obs.kolabsys.com origin as a preferred source.

    Put the following in /etc/apt/preferences.d/kolab:

    Package: *
    Pin: origin obs.kolabsys.com
    Pin-Priority: 501
    
  4. Update the repository metadata:

    # apt-get update
    
  5. Start the installation of the base package as follows:

    # aptitude -y install kolab
