With Debian and Ubuntu, the management of the world is done by .deb
packages. If you want to get binaries (or sources also) the system use
.deb. To do this you can use synaptic (gui), or aptitude (cli). So, yes
you can search and find and install freeradius with synaptic. It will
take care of all dependencies. And you'll have to remember to use
/etc/freeradius instead of /etc/raddb when you'll read freeradius documents.
If you haven't a special request about your freeradius setup just
install freeradius with synaptic. Here the command with aptitude :
sudo aptitude install freeradius
If you want a ldap backend :
sudo aptitude install freeradius-ldap
If you want a sqlbackend, it depand of the rdbms you want :
sudo aptitude install freeradius-mysql
sudo aptitude install freeradius-postgresql
With this process you'll get a basic running freeradius. Then you'll
have to fit your needs by modifying the setup.
The search flag will give all the freeradius .deb possibilities. You can
always use synaptic gui or aptitude cli as following :
sudo aptitude search <pattern>
