Really appreciated for your information. Right now my host is equipped with "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.3 (Santiago)", so i am not sure i can use the package installation with the packages from link -> So i prefer to use the way of installing from source. However, i have not seen the latest Quantum admin guide delivers with such information of installing from source for the latest Folsom version.

At the moment you can make use of the EPEL packages -

apparently there are RHEL packages here:

But the Folsom version of packages are still in the works, and I would NOT suggest using the essex version of quantum, as the system has improved significantly since then.

We intentionally do not describe install from source in the admin guide, but you can install openstack using if you prefer. For example, you can look at how it is done in devstack:

Kevin, OpenStack Folsom packages are currently available in EPEL testing, you can use instructions in wiki that Gary pointed out.
When testing, please provide feedback in EPEL update

Thanks Dan and Gary,

so, if we proceed with installation from source same as DevStack has described, I think it should work right?

Also, I think this link has been described some steps, Gary can you verify this steps?


sorry forgot to attach the link

I have a similar question... I have to install Quantum on CentOS. Does that mean I'll need to install from source? Is there any documentation that I can follow to install it on CentOS?

Another more important question is that if Quantum is supported and tested well on CentOS?



Can you help with this problem?
