4. Setting up the repository

4.1. Downloading the repository package file

Download the ox-hfs-repo package.

For Debian based systems (including Debian, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, Zorin) download the file ftp://ftp.hfs.ox.ac.uk/repo/apt/deb/ox-hfs-repo.deb.

For RedHat based systems (including RedHat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, Centos, Scientific Linux, Mandriva, Mageia, OpenSUSE, SUSE Enterprise Linux) download the file ftp://ftp.hfs.ox.ac.uk/repo/rpm/ox-hfs-repo.rpm.

Note that access to this file is restricted to the University network. If you are outside the University you can still obtain the file and install the TSM client provided you have a VPN connection to the University network while you do the installation.

If you download this package file using a browser you may be prompted to install it. You may be able to do this (the details will vary from one distribution to another) but it is known that there are cases where this doesn't work so we recommend that you save the file to disk and use the commands described below to install the package.

4.2. Installing the repository package

Open a command shell, change to the directory where you saved the file, and as root run the following command (depending on your Linux distribution):

For Debian based systems (including Debian, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, Zorin) run

 dpkg -i ox-hfs-repo.deb

For RedHat based systems that use the yum package manager (including RedHat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, Centos, Scientific Linux) run

 yum install ox-hfs-repo.rpm

For other RedHat based systems (including Mandriva, Mageia, OpenSUSE, SUSE Enterprise Linux), or if yum install doesn't work on your system, run

 rpm -i ox-hfs-repo.rpm
