the :doc:`install`. Refer to it if you are setting up Ganeti the first time.
This quick installation guide is mainly meant as reference for experienced
users. A glossary of terms can be found in the :doc:`glossary`.

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
56
packages, except for RBD, DRBD and Xen::
Michael Hanselmann's avatar
Michael Hanselmann committed
57 58

  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping \
59
                    ndisc6 python python-pyopenssl openssl \
60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72
                    python-pyparsing python-simplejson python-bitarray \
                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping

If bitarray is missing it can be installed from easy-install::

  $ easy_install bitarray

Or on newer distributions (eg. Debian Wheezy) the above becomes::

  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping \
                    ndisc6 python python-openssl openssl \
                    python-pyparsing python-simplejson python-bitarray \

73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

Note that this does not install optional packages::

  $ apt-get install python-paramiko python-affinity qemu-img

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

82
  $ apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev
83
  $ cd / && sudo easy_install \
84 85
            affinity \
            bitarray \

            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
119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127
  ``--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
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

128 129 130
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:
131

132
- `GHC <http://www.haskell.org/ghc/>`_ version 6.12 or higher
133 134 135 136 137 138
- or even better, `The Haskell Platform
  <http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/>`_ which gives you a simple way
  to bootstrap Haskell
- `json <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/json>`_, a JSON library
- `network <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/network>`_, a basic
  network library
139 140
- `parallel <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/parallel>`_, a parallel
  programming library (note: tested with up to version 3.x)
141 142 143
- `bytestring <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/bytestring>`_ and
  `utf8-string <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/utf8-string>`_
  libraries; these usually come with the GHC compiler
144
- `deepseq <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/deepseq>`_
145 146
- `curl <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/curl>`_, tested with
  versions 1.3.4 and above
147

Iustin Pop's avatar
Iustin Pop committed
148
Some of these are also available as package in Debian/Ubuntu::
149 150

  $ apt-get install ghc6 libghc6-json-dev libghc6-network-dev \
151 152
                    libghc6-parallel-dev libghc6-deepseq-dev \
                    libghc6-curl-dev
153

154
Or in newer versions of these distributions (using GHC 7.x)::
155

156
  $ apt-get install ghc libghc-json-dev libghc-network-dev \
157 158
                    libghc-parallel-dev libghc-deepseq-dev \
                    libghc-utf8-string-dev libghc-curl-dev
159

160
In Fedora, some of them are available via packages as well::
161

162 163
  $ yum install ghc ghc-json-devel ghc-network-devel \
                    ghc-parallel-devel ghc-deepseq-devel
164

165
If using a distribution which does not provide them, first install
166
the Haskell platform. You can also install ``cabal`` manually::
167 168

  $ apt-get install cabal-install
Michele Tartara's avatar
Michele Tartara committed
169
  $ cabal update
170

171 172
Then install the additional libraries (only the ones not available in your
distribution packages) via ``cabal``::
173

174
  $ cabal install json network parallel utf8-string curl
175

176 177 178 179
Haskell optional features
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Optionally, more functionality can be enabled if your build machine has

180
a few more Haskell libraries enabled: the ``ganeti-confd`` and
Thomas Thrainer's avatar
Thomas Thrainer committed
181
``ganeti-luxid`` daemon (``--enable-confd``) and the monitoring daemon
182
(``--enable-mond``). The list of extra dependencies for these is:
183

184 185 186 187 188
- `hslogger <http://software.complete.org/hslogger>`_, version 1.1 and
  above (note that Debian Squeeze only has version 1.0.9)
- `Crypto <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/Crypto>`_, tested with
  version 4.2.4
- `text <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/text>`_
189 190
- `hinotify <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hinotify>`_, tested with
  version 0.3.2
191 192
- `regex-pcre <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/regex-pcre>`_,
  bindings for the ``pcre`` library
193
- `attoparsec <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/attoparsec>`_
194
- `vector <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/vector>`_
195 196
- `snap-server` <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/snap-server>`_, version
  0.8.1 and above.
197

These libraries are available in Debian Wheezy (but not in Squeeze), so you
can use either apt::
200

201
  $ apt-get install libghc-hslogger-dev libghc-crypto-dev libghc-text-dev \
202
                    libghc-hinotify-dev libghc-regex-pcre-dev \
203 204
                    libghc-attoparsec-dev libghc-vector-dev \
                    libghc-snap-server-dev
205

206
or ``cabal``, after installing a required non-Haskell dependency::
207

208
  $ apt-get install libpcre3-dev
209
  $ cabal install hslogger Crypto text hinotify==0.3.2 regex-pcre \
210
                  attoparsec vector snap-server
211

212
to install them.
213

214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222
In case you still use ghc-6.12, note that ``cabal`` would automatically try to
install newer versions of some of the libraries snap-server depends on, that
cannot be compiled with ghc-6.12, so you have to install snap-server on its
own, esplicitly forcing the installation of compatible versions::

  $ cabal install MonadCatchIO-transformers==0.2.2.0 mtl==2.0.1.0 \
                  hashable==1.1.2.0 case-insensitive==0.3 parsec==3.0.1 \
                  network==2.3 snap-server==0.8.1

223 224 225
The most recent Fedora doesn't provide ``crypto``, ``inotify``. So these
need to be installed using ``cabal``, if desired. The other packages can
be installed via ``yum``::
226 227 228 229

  $ yum install ghc-hslogger-devel ghc-text-devel \
                ghc-regex-pcre-devel

230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237
.. _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``.

To install, simply run the following command::

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``,
etc.).
