Install Sympa distribution: RPM package

Currently, DNF (YUM) repositories provide RPM packages of Sympa.

Note

  • Packages for RHEL/CentOS 6 or earlier will no longer be provided.

Requirements

Installing

  1. Install Sympa:
    # dnf install sympa
    

    or (if you are using yum)

    # yum install sympa
    

Thus, Sympa and dependent packages will be installed.

Upgrading

  1. Update DNF (yum), dependent packages and then Sympa packages:
    # dnf update dnf
    # dnf update --exclude='sympa*'
    # dnf update sympa
    

    or (if you are using yum)

    # yum update yum
    # yum update --exclude='sympa*'
    # yum update sympa
    

Installing earlier version

If you have to (re)install RPMs of Sympa prior to 6.2.44, they are provided by repository on Sympa-JA.org.

Note

  • Sympa-JA.org repository will no longer be updated. And it may be shut down in the near future. Unless you needed particular historic version of Sympa, follow the instruction described in above.

  • If you have been using Sympa-JA.org repository, you may seamlessly upgrade sympa package with EPEL.

  1. Install EPEL repository (see “Requirements” above).

  2. Add Sympa repository.

    Download a configuration file of either repository:

    and save it in /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory.

    Then update cache:

    # yum makecache
    
  3. Install Sympa:

    # yum install sympa
    

By the steps above, Sympa and dependent packages will be installed.
