This quick installation guide is mainly meant as reference for experienced

These programs are supplied as part of most Linux distributions, so
usually they can be installed via the standard package manager. Also
many of them will already be installed on a standard machine. On
Debian/Ubuntu, you can use this command line to install all required
60
packages, except for RBD, DRBD and Xen::

61

62
  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping make m4 \
63
                    ndisc6 python python-openssl openssl \
64
65
66
                    python-pyparsing python-simplejson python-bitarray \
                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping

67
68
Note that the previous instructions don't install optional packages.
To install the optional package, run the following line.::
69

70
  $ apt-get install python-paramiko python-psutil qemu-utils
71
72
73
74
75

If some of the python packages are not available in your system,
you can try installing them using ``easy_install`` command.
For example::

76
  $ apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev
77
  $ cd / && easy_install \
78
            psutil \
79
            bitarray \
80
            ipaddr

  $ yum install openssh openssh-clients bridge-utils iproute ndisc6 make \
86
                pyOpenSSL pyparsing python-simplejson python-inotify \
87
                python-lxm socat fping python-bitarray python-ipaddr

.. _socat-note:
.. note::
  Ganeti's import/export functionality uses ``socat`` with OpenSSL for
  transferring data between nodes. By default, OpenSSL 0.9.8 and above
  employ transparent compression of all data using zlib if supported by
  both sides of a connection. In cases where a lot of data is
  transferred, this can lead to an increased CPU usage. Additionally,
  Ganeti already compresses all data using ``gzip`` where it makes sense
  (for inter-cluster instance moves).

  To remedey this situation, patches implementing a new ``socat`` option
  for disabling OpenSSL compression have been contributed and will
  likely be included in the next feature release. Until then, users or
  distributions need to apply the patches on their own.

  Ganeti will use the option if it's detected by the ``configure``

  script; auto-detection can be disabled by explicitly passing

117
118
119
120
121
  ``--enable-socat-compress`` (use the option to disable compression) or
  ``--disable-socat-compress`` (don't use the option).

  The patches and more information can be found on
  http://www.dest-unreach.org/socat/contrib/socat-opensslcompress.html.

Haskell requirements
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

122
123
124
Starting with Ganeti 2.7, the Haskell GHC compiler and a few base
libraries are required in order to build Ganeti (but not to run and
deploy Ganeti on production machines). More specifically:

Some of these are also available as package in Debian/Ubuntu::

                    libghc-parallel-dev \

                    libghc-zlib-dev

Debian Jessie also includes recent enough versions of these libraries::

  $ apt-get install libghc-base64-bytestring-dev \
                    libghc-lens-dev \
                    libghc-lifted-base-dev
181

182
In Fedora, some of them are available via packages as well::
183

184
  $ yum install ghc ghc-json-devel ghc-network-devel \
185
186
187
                    ghc-parallel-devel ghc-deepseq-devel \
                    ghc-hslogger-devel ghc-text-devel \
                    ghc-regex-pcre-devel
188

189
190
191
192
193
The most recent Fedora doesn't provide ``crypto``, ``inotify``. So these
need to be installed using ``cabal``.

If using a distribution which does not provide these libraries, first
install the Haskell platform. You can also install ``cabal`` manually::
194
195

  $ apt-get install cabal-install

196
  $ cabal update
197

198
199
200
201
202
203
Then install the additional native libraries::

  $ apt-get install libpcre3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev

And finally the libraries required for building the packages (only the
ones not available in your distribution packages) via ``cabal``::
204

205
206
  $ cabal install json network parallel utf8-string curl hslogger \
                  Crypto text hinotify==0.3.2 regex-pcre \

220
221
222
223
(The specified versions are suitable for Debian Wheezy, for other
distributions different versions might be needed.)

.. _cabal-order-note:
.. note::
  When installing additional libraries using ``cabal``, be sure to first
  install all the required libraries available in your distribution and
  only then install the rest using ``cabal``.
  Otherwise cabal might install different versions of libraries that are
  available in your distribution, causing conflicts during the
  compilation.
  This applies in particular when installing libraries for the optional
  features.

227
Haskell optional features
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Optionally, more functionality can be enabled if your build machine has
228
a few more Haskell libraries enabled: the ``ganeti-confd`` daemon
229
(``--enable-confd``), the monitoring daemon (``--enable-monitoring``) and
Petr Pudlak's avatar
Petr Pudlak committed
230
the meta-data daemon (``--enable-metadata``).
231
The extra dependency for these is:
232

233
234
- `snap-server` <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/snap-server>`_, version
  0.8.1 and above.
235

236
237
This library is available in Debian Wheezy or later, so you can use
either apt::
238

239
  $ apt-get install libghc-snap-server-dev
240

241
or ``cabal``::
242

243
  $ cabal install snap-server
244

245
to install it.
246

247
248
249
250
251
252
253
254
.. _cabal-note:
.. note::
  If one of the cabal packages fails to install due to unfulfilled
  dependencies, you can try enabling symlinks in ``~/.cabal/config``.

  Make sure that your ``~/.cabal/bin`` directory (or whatever else
  is defined as ``bindir``) is in your ``PATH``.

Installation of the software

----------------------------

To install, simply run the following command::

  $ ./configure --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc && \

263

Michael Hanselmann's avatar

264
265
266
This will install the software under ``/usr/local``. You then need to
copy ``doc/examples/ganeti.initd`` to ``/etc/init.d/ganeti`` and
integrate it into your boot sequence (``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``,
267
268
269
270
etc.). Also, Ganeti uses symbolic links in the sysconfdir to determine,
which of potentially many installed versions currently is used. If these
symbolic links should be added by the install as well, add the
option ``--enable-symlinks`` to the ``configure`` call.
