To install the JASMIN Analysis Platform RPMs you will need a 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 or compatible Red Hat Linux distribution. The platform is tested regularly on RHEL 6.4 and sometimes on CentOS 6.x. The RPMs build on those provided by the Fedora Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) project.
64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4
Configure the EPEL 6 repository. Use the RPM below or see the EPEL Home Page for available mirrors.
# rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm
Configure the CEDA repository. See the CEDA Yum Repository for the latest configuration RPM.
# rpm -Uvh http://dist.ceda.ac.uk/yumrepo/RPMS/ceda-yumrepo-0.1-1.ceda.el6.noarch.rpm
Disable certain packages which the JAP provides from being installed from EPEL, as follows. In the file
[epel]add the line:
exclude=grib_api* geos* gdal* grass* GraphicsMagick*
Note: the excludes list may be subject to change. In the event of any dependency problems when doing a
yum update, please check back here to see if it has changed.
