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
57
packages, except for RBD, DRBD and Xen::

58

59
  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping make \
60
                    ndisc6 python python-openssl openssl \
61 62 63
                    python-pyparsing python-simplejson python-bitarray \
                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping

64 65
For older distributions (eg. Debian  Squeeze) the package names are
different.::
66

67
  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping make \
68
                    ndisc6 python python-pyopenssl openssl \
69 70
                    python-pyparsing python-simplejson python-bitarray \
                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping
71

72 73 74 75
If bitarray is missing it can be installed from easy-install::

  $ easy_install bitarray

76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83
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::

84
  $ apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev
85
  $ cd / && sudo easy_install \
86 87
            affinity \
            bitarray \
88
            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
121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129
  ``--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
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

130 131 132
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:
133

134
- `GHC <http://www.haskell.org/ghc/>`_ version 6.12 or higher
135 136 137 138 139 140
- 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
141 142
- `parallel <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/parallel>`_, a parallel
  programming library (note: tested with up to version 3.x)
143 144 145
- `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
146
- `deepseq <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/deepseq>`_
147 148
- `curl <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/curl>`_, tested with
  versions 1.3.4 and above
149

Iustin Pop's avatar
Iustin Pop committed
150
Some of these are also available as package in Debian/Ubuntu::
151

152
  $ apt-get install ghc libghc-json-dev libghc-network-dev \
153 154
                    libghc-parallel-dev libghc-deepseq-dev \
                    libghc-utf8-string-dev libghc-curl-dev
155

156 157 158 159 160 161
Or in older versions of these distributions (using GHC 6.x)::

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

162
In Fedora, some of them are available via packages as well::
163

164 165
  $ yum install ghc ghc-json-devel ghc-network-devel \
                    ghc-parallel-devel ghc-deepseq-devel
166

167
If using a distribution which does not provide them, first install
168
the Haskell platform. You can also install ``cabal`` manually::
169 170

  $ apt-get install cabal-install
Michele Tartara's avatar
Michele Tartara committed
171
  $ cabal update
172

173 174
Then install the additional libraries (only the ones not available in your
distribution packages) via ``cabal``::
175

176
  $ cabal install json network parallel utf8-string curl
177

178 179 180 181
Haskell optional features
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

a few more Haskell libraries enabled: the ``ganeti-confd`` and
Thomas Thrainer's avatar
Thomas Thrainer committed
183
``ganeti-luxid`` daemon (``--enable-confd``) and the monitoring daemon
184
(``--enable-mond``). The list of extra dependencies for these is:
185

186 187 188 189 190
- `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>`_
191 192
- `hinotify <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hinotify>`_, tested with
  version 0.3.2
193 194
- `regex-pcre <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/regex-pcre>`_,
  bindings for the ``pcre`` library
195
- `attoparsec <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/attoparsec>`_
196
- `vector <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/vector>`_
197 198
- `snap-server` <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/snap-server>`_, version
  0.8.1 and above.
199 200
- `process <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/process>`_, version 1.0.1.1 and
  above
201

These libraries are available in Debian Wheezy (but not in Squeeze), so you
can use either apt::
204

205
  $ apt-get install libghc-hslogger-dev libghc-crypto-dev libghc-text-dev \
206
                    libghc-hinotify-dev libghc-regex-pcre-dev \
207 208
                    libghc-attoparsec-dev libghc-vector-dev \
                    libghc-snap-server-dev
209

210
or ``cabal``, after installing a required non-Haskell dependency::
211

Guido Trotter's avatar
Guido Trotter committed
212
  $ apt-get install libpcre3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev
213
  $ cabal install hslogger Crypto text hinotify==0.3.2 regex-pcre \
214
                  attoparsec vector snap-server
215

216
to install them.
217

218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226
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

227 228 229
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``::
230 231 232 233

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

234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241
.. _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.).
