Follow these steps if your distribution does not provide a packaged version of fedfs-utils.

  1. Download the fedfs-utils-0.10 release tarball (fedfs-utils-0.10.0.tar.gz).
  2. Unpack the fedfs-utils-0.10 tarball somewhere convenient.
  3. Run ./configure in the fedfs-utils top-level directory.
    1. By default ./configure installs under /usr/local. Specify "--prefix=/usr" to install fedfs-utils in the usual places.
    2. If you are on a 64-bit platform, be sure to specify "--libdir=/usr/lib64".
    3. The ./configure script may find missing libraries or headers such as libcap, libtirpc, libuuid, and graphviz. Install these components using your distribution's installation tool to allow the ./configure script to complete successfully.
  4. Use "make" to build the package.
  5. As root run "make install"
  6. Use "make doxy" to build Doxygen web pages

Before running any FedFS commands, create a "fedfs" user and group IDs:

# useradd -c "FedFS Administrator" -s /sbin/nologin fedfs
# groupadd fedfs
