Required Software: Linux¶
The following packages will need to be installed on the system:
On Debian-based systems, these can all be installed with the following command:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential python3-dev python3-venv openssl libssl-dev libevent-dev git
On Ubuntu-based systems, available packages allow you to specify the python3 version, 3.6 or greater is required (Debian itself does not provide those packages).
On arm-based systems (including, but not limited to, Raspbian), you must also install libffi-dev, you can do this with:
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
On Redhat or CENTOS systems, these can all be installed with the following command:
sudo yum update sudo yum install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel python3-devel openssl openssl-devel libevent-devel git
Python 3.6 or greater is required.
If you have an agent which requires the pyodbc package, install the following:
On Debian-based systems these can be installed with the following command:
sudo apt-get install freetds-bin unixodbc-dev
On Redhat or CentOS systems, these can be installed from the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository:
sudo yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm sudo yum install freetds unixODBC-devel
The above command to install the EPEL repository is for Centos/Redhat 8. Change the number to match your OS version.
EPEL packages are included in Fedora repositories, so installing EPEL is not required on Fedora.
The /tmp directory must allow exec. This error could manifest itself during the building of gevent.
# Executing mount should have an entry like the following mount tmpfs on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
To change the mount you can use the following code
# remount /tmp to allow exec sudo mount -o remount,exec /tmp
# remount /tmp to disallow exec sudo mount -o remount,noexec /tmp
