gLite RPM APT repository

Installation instructions

Prior to installing the APT you might want to verify whether it is not already present on your system with the command:

rpm -qa | grep apt

If you did not find the APT, as a root user please install it with the command (using the Scientific Linux repository):

rpm -ivh http://linuxsoft.cern.ch/cern/slc30X/i386/SL/RPMS/apt-0.5.15cnc6-8.SL.cern.i386.rpm


Put the following line in a file inside the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory (you can create a file called for instance: glite-rhel30.list):
 
rpm http://glitesoft.cern.ch/EGEE/gLite/APT/R3.0/ rhel30 externals Release3.0 updates
Finally, run:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade


(this will upgrade the apt and all not-up-to-date packages installed on your system and add any new package)

Then proceed with the module of your choice via


apt-get install XXXX

where XXXX is the name of your module. See the release page for a list of modules.
