Project: fedfs-utils

[ Project Home | News | Downloads | Docs | Mailing Lists | Source Control | Issues ]


If you are running an Enterprise Linux 6-based distribution (including Oracle Linux 6, CentOS 6, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6), you can install a packaged version of fedfs-utils-0.9.

Adding the EPEL 6 repository

The fedfs-utils packages are not part of the original Enterprise Linux 6 package set. But they are available in the popular add-on repository for Enterprise Linux known as EPEL. Before you can install fedfs-utils on your Enterprise Linux 6 system, EPEL 6 repository information has to be configured so yum can find fedfs-utils 0.9 packages and retrieve subsequent updates.

Download the epel-release package for EL6. An information page is located here.

As root, cd to the download directory and install the downloaded RPM:

# rpm -ivh epel-release-*.noarch.rpm

You should be able to see that the repository has been configured:

# yum repolist

Installing fedfs-utils packages

fedfs-utils is split into several packages. These include:

  • fedfs-utils-admin
  • fedfs-utils-client
  • fedfs-utils-common
  • fedfs-utils-lib
  • fedfs-utils-nsdbparams
  • fedfs-utils-server

On any Enterprise Linux 6 host that participates in a FedFS domain, you can install just the fedfs-utils components you need. For example, on NFS clients:

# yum install fedfs-utils-client

Or, on NFS servers:

# yum install fedfs-utils-lib fedfs-utils-nsdbparams fedfs-utils-server

There are also packages for development and debugging:

  • fedfs-utils-devel
  • fedfs-utils-debuginfo

More information is available from koji.
