installing rrdtool

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
