RE: [hobbit] Xymon CentOS 5 installation

Hi Buchan

I am very new to Centos as I come from a Ubuntu/Opensuse background. Do
I add these repositories to Yum? I tried downloading them with firefox
and opening them with the software installer but it complains about
missing dependencies.

Any ideas?

Install the packages from a repo:


# yum install xymon
# service xymon start

Some files are in slightly different places than if you install
manually, in 
order to comply with packaging standards, so configs in /etc/xymon, data
/var/lib/xymon, xymon home directory is /usr/lib*/xymon, with symlinks
to keep 
it consistent.
