Not a step by step but this will help to get TwitterSpy running on Debian. Dependencies Make sure you have these installed (in this order?) With Python, pysqlite and Twisted you need to download then run the following in each directory after unpacking python build python install - Memcached (apt-get memcached on Debian)

- Python 2.5.x (not 2.4, 2.6 or 3, remember to reboot)
- SQLite3 (you may need to remove sqlite first, [apt-get remove sqlite])
- SQLAlchemy - pysqlite-2.4.1
- Twisted 8.2.x (remember to reboot, odd I know)
- git (to tackle the gitfm file manager name clash)
--- apt-get install git-core
--- update-alternatives
--config git Installation
- Unpack Twitterspy
- git submodule init && git submodule update
- copy twitterspy.conf.sample to twitterspy.conf
- edit twitterspy.conf
- sqlite twitterspy-test.sqlite3 (to create the database)
- run ./etc/
- Setup a startup script in /etc/init.d
- run twisted -ny twitterspy.tac &

Leave the 'n' out of the above if yu're going to be logging out and want to leave twitterspy running.
