installing rrdtool

April 11th, 2011 by

Hi

there are different ways to configure and install rrdtool in your system each one depends on the type of OS that you are running

 

For CentOS / Redhat

  1. adding the rpmforge repository to yum
    • choose the url that correspond to your OS dist – arch from http://rpmrepo.org/RPMforge/Using
    • execute the following command

e.g. for centOS 5 on i386 arch i will choose the following url http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el5.rf.i386.rpm

[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

rpm -Uhv CHOSENURL

[/codesyntax]

where the CHOSENURL is the url you chosed in the first step.

So for my case the command should be

[codesyntax lang=”bash”]

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

[/codesyntax]

  1. to install rrdtool
    • execute the following command

    [codesyntax lang=”bash”]

    yum -y install rrdtool

    [/codesyntax]

    • if you don’t wish that rpmForge remaining in your list of repository you can execute the following command which will remove it

    [codesyntax lang=”bash”]

    yum remove rpmforge-release

    [/codesyntax]

For Ubuntu/Debian
Just install any RRDtool dep fle or search for any repo that have RRDTool on it
