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
58
packages, except for RBD, DRBD and Xen::

60
  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping make m4 \

                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping

65
66
For older distributions (eg. Debian  Squeeze) the package names are
different.::
67

68
  $ apt-get install lvm2 ssh bridge-utils iproute iputils-arping make \
69
                    ndisc6 python python-pyopenssl openssl \

                    python-pyinotify python-pycurl python-ipaddr socat fping
72

73
74
75
76
If bitarray is missing it can be installed from easy-install::

  $ easy_install bitarray

77
78
Note that this does not install optional packages::

79
  $ apt-get install python-paramiko python-affinity qemu-utils
80
81
82
83
84

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

85
  $ apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev
86
  $ cd / && easy_install \
87
88
            affinity \
            bitarray \
89
            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

123
124
125
126
127
128
129
130
  ``--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
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

131
132
133
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:
134

135
- `GHC <http://www.haskell.org/ghc/>`_ version 6.12 or higher
136
137
138
139
140
141
- 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
142
143
- `parallel <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/parallel>`_, a parallel
  programming library (note: tested with up to version 3.x)
144
145
146
- `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
147
- `text <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/text>`_
148
- `deepseq <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/deepseq>`_
149
150
- `curl <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/curl>`_, tested with
  versions 1.3.4 and above
151
152
- `hslogger <http://software.complete.org/hslogger>`_, version 1.1 and
  above (note that Debian Squeeze only has version 1.0.9)
153
154
155
156
157
158
159
160
161
162
- `hinotify <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/hinotify>`_, tested with
  version 0.3.2
- `Crypto <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/Crypto>`_, tested with
  version 4.2.4
- `regex-pcre <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/regex-pcre>`_,
  bindings for the ``pcre`` library
- `attoparsec <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/attoparsec>`_
- `vector <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/vector>`_
- `process <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/process>`_, version 1.0.1.1 and
  above

Some of these are also available as package in Debian/Ubuntu::
165

166
  $ apt-get install ghc libghc-json-dev libghc-network-dev \
167
                    libghc-parallel-dev libghc-deepseq-dev \
168
                    libghc-utf8-string-dev libghc-curl-dev \
169
170
171
172
173
                    libghc-hslogger-dev \
                    libghc-crypto-dev libghc-text-dev \
                    libghc-hinotify-dev libghc-regex-pcre-dev \
                    libpcre3-dev \
                    libghc-attoparsec-dev libghc-vector-dev
174

175
176
177
178
179
180
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

181
In Fedora, some of them are available via packages as well::
182

183
  $ yum install ghc ghc-json-devel ghc-network-devel \
184
185
186
                    ghc-parallel-devel ghc-deepseq-devel \
                    ghc-hslogger-devel ghc-text-devel \
                    ghc-regex-pcre-devel
187

188
189
190
191
192
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::
193
194

  $ apt-get install cabal-install
Michele Tartara's avatar
Michele Tartara committed
195
  $ cabal update
196

197
198
199
200
201
202
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``::
203

204
205
206
  $ cabal install json network parallel utf8-string curl hslogger \
                  Crypto text hinotify==0.3.2 regex-pcre \
                  attoparsec vector
207

208
209
210
211
Haskell optional features
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Optionally, more functionality can be enabled if your build machine has
212
213
214
a few more Haskell libraries enabled: the ``ganeti-confd`` daemon
(``--enable-confd``) and the monitoring daemon (``--enable-mond``).
The extra dependency for these is:
215

216
217
- `snap-server` <http://hackage.haskell.org/package/snap-server>`_, version
  0.8.1 and above.
218

219
This library is available in Debian Wheezy (but not in Squeeze), so you
Michele Tartara's avatar
Michele Tartara committed
220
can use either apt::
221

222
  $ apt-get install libghc-snap-server-dev
223

224
or ``cabal``::
225

226
  $ cabal install snap-server
227

228
to install it.
229

230
231
232
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
233
own, explicitly forcing the installation of compatible versions::
234
235
236
237
238

  $ 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

239
240
241
242
243
244
245
246
.. _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``.

247
Installation of the software

248
249
250
----------------------------

To install, simply run the following command::

251

252
253
254
  $ ./configure --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc && \
    make && \
    make install
Iustin Pop's avatar
Iustin Pop committed
255

Michael Hanselmann's avatar
Michael Hanselmann committed
256
257
258
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``,
259
260
261
262
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.
