Installing on Fedora

From DNSSEC-Tools
Jump to: navigation, search

Starting with Fedora 7 the dnssec-tools rpms are available in the main yum repositories. If you're not using Fedor 7 or above, see the last section on this page.

Installing with Yum

To install the dnssec-tools packages using yum run the following command as root:

 yum install dnssec-tools dnssec-tools-libs dnssec-tools-perlmods

To install the development packages too, use:

 yum install dnssec-tools-libs-devel dnssec-tools-debuginfo

Installing without Yum

If you can't use yum to install the packages, you have two choices: Try and build RPMs from the SRPM files or build by hand the normal way.

Building RPMS from the SRPMS

If you can install RPMs then you might be able to build RPMs for your system from SRPMs.

Start by getting the latest SPRM file first and then run:

 rpmbuild -ba /path/to/dnssec-tools.srpm

After the build process completes, it should print a list of RPMs that you can then install by using:

 rpm -i /path/to/dnssec-tools*.rpm

Building from Scratch

If you need to build from scratch because you can't make use of the RPMs at all, please follow the instructions on the Installing on Unix page instead.
