Installation on Linux via RPM Repository

Elliott Sales de Andrade edited this page Jun 8, 2017 · 6 revisions

A copr repository is available that provides packages for ObsPy and its dependencies for the following distributions:

  • The previous Fedora release (currently 24)
  • The latest Fedora release (currently 25)
  • The next Fedora release (currently 26 (when available))
  • Fedora rawhide
  • CentOS/EL 7

A separate copr repository is available for older repositories:

  • CentOS/EL 6

On older distributions, the documentation package may not be available, but documentation may be accessed online.

To install ObsPy, you must first enable the repository, and then install the desired package(s).

Enable repository

Fedora 24+

$ sudo dnf copr enable qulogic/obspy


On CentOS, you will need to install the epel-release package to obtain some dependencies from the EPEL repositories. You also need to have yum-plugin-copr installed.

$ sudo yum install epel-release yum-plugin-copr

Then enable the correct copr repo as noted below:

CentOS 6

$ sudo yum copr enable qulogic/obspy-el6

CentOS 7

$ sudo yum copr enable qulogic/obspy


Alternatively, you can manually download a .repo file and place it in /etc/yum.repos.d/. These .repo files for each distribution can be found on the copr Overview page or copr Overview page for EL6.

Install ObsPy

After enabling the repository, you can simple do:

Python 3

Python 3 packages may not be available for CentOS.

$ sudo dnf install python3-obspy


$ sudo yum install python3-obspy

Python 2

$ sudo dnf install python2-obspy


$ sudo yum install python-obspy


For offline browsing of the documentation (not available for all distributions):

$ sudo dnf install python-obspy-docs


$ sudo yum install python-obspy-docs
