+Installation of s3cmd package
+=============================

+
+!!!
+!!! Please consult README file for setup, usage and examples!
+!!!
+
+Package formats
+---------------
+S3cmd is distributed in two formats:
+1) Prebuilt RPM file - should work on most RPM-based
+ distributions
+2) Source .tar.gz package
+
+
+
+Installation of RPM package
+---------------------------
+As user "root" run:
+
+ rpm -ivh s3cmd-X.Y.Z.noarch.rpm
+
+where X.Y.Z is the most recent s3cmd release version.
+
+You may be informed about missing dependencies
+on Python or some libraries. Please consult your
+distribution documentation on ways to solve the problem.
+
+
+Installation of source .tar.gz package
+--------------------------------------
+There are three options to run s3cmd from source tarball:
+
+1) S3cmd program as distributed in s3cmd-X.Y.Z.tar.gz
+ can be run directly from where you untar'ed the package.
+
+2) Or you may want to move "s3cmd" file and "S3" subdirectory
+ to some other path. Make sure that "S3" subdirectory ends up
+ in the same place where you move the "s3cmd" file.
+
+ For instance if you decide to move s3cmd to you $HOME/bin
+ you will have $HOME/bin/s3cmd file and $HOME/bin/S3 directory
+ with a number of support files.
+
+3) The cleanest and most recommended approach is to run
+
+ python setup.py install
+
+ You will however need Python "distutils" module for this to
+ work. It is often part of the core python package (e.g. in
+ OpenSuse Python 2.5 package) or it can be installed using your
+ package manager, e.g. in Debian use
+
+ apt-get install python2.4-setuptools
+
+ Again, consult your distribution documentation on how to
+ find out the actual package name and how to install it then.
