HP support pack on CentOS

February 7th, 2009 No comments

If you have CentOS running on a HP server you can install the HP support pack. On the HP site download the Redhat version.

First of all you need some rpm packages, this should be enough:

yum install rpm-build rpm-devel net-snmp glib kernel-devel
compat-libstdc++-296 make gcc

Than you have to edit the /etc/redhat-release file. First make a backup of the original file. Than place the following line in it:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 5

The version number must match the CentOS version, in my case this was CentOS 5.2.
After this you can easily start the installation by typing: ./install<versie>.sh -nui.
