For debian:

# wget -O - https://nightly.odoo.com/odoo.key | apt-key add -
# echo "deb http://nightly.odoo.com/9.0/nightly/deb/ ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt-get update && apt-get install odoo

Should be enough. Can somebody here confirm ?


For other platform or sourcce install it is documented here 
https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/setup/install.html Check the warning 
about less:

In later debian (>jessie) and ubuntu (>14.04) you may need to add a symlink as 
npm packages call node but debian calls the binary nodejs

$ apt-get install -y npm
$ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
