Download Tahoe-LAFS

The current version is v1.10.0.

Run this release from source.

(Note: running Tahoe-LAFS from source does not require system-wide installation nor root privileges.)


Install one of the OS packages below. These packages may be for an earlier release.

Ubuntu lucid, oneiric, precise, quantal

Official Packages Buildbot
# apt-get install tahoe-lafs

Debian sid (unstable), wheezy (testing)

Official Packages Buildbot
# apt-get install tahoe-lafs

Slackware 14.0, 13.37, 13.1, 13.0

SlackBuilds.Org Repository Slackware64 Buildbots: 14.0 -current


# nix-env -i tahoe-lafs

Arch Linux

Unofficial Packages

This command installs the [outdated] tahoe-lafs v1.9.2 from the user-maintained package repository

# yaourt -S tahoe-lafs 


Official Packages Buildbot
# pkg_add tahoe-lafs

After installing an OS package, run tahoe --version to verify that the executable tool prints out the right version number after "allmydata-tahoe:".

Now you are ready to deploy a decentralized filesystem. The tahoe command can configure and launch your Tahoe-LAFS nodes. See running.rst for instructions on how to do that.
