RHEL / Centos / Scientific Linux 
================================

While you can go about building all these things from source, this
section will try and meet the dependencies using packages from EPEL_
[#f1]_ or RPMforge_. The *el5* package should be compatible with
`CentOS`_ 5.x and `Scientific Linux`_.


EPEL_::

    [root@centos ~]# rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

RPMforge_::

    [root@centos ~]# rpm -Uvh http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

Note: Be careful with `mixing package repositories <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#What_about_compatibility_with_other_third_party_repositories.3F>`_.

Install the bcfg2-server and bcfg2 RPMs::

    [root@centos ~]# yum install bcfg2-server bcfg2
