Coda File System

Chapter 6. Installing and Configuring a Coda Client

A Coda client can be run on any workstation that has kernel support for Coda in its kernel. Supported UNIX ™ -like platforms are currently Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD.

6.1. Installing and Configuring the Coda Client Binaries and Documentation

Linux. Install RPMS using following commands:


#


rpm -Uvh lwp-


release


.i386.rpm


#


rpm -Uvh rvm-


release


.i386.rpm


#


rpm -Uvh rpc2-


release


.i386.rpm


#


rpm -Uvh coda-debug-client-


release


.i386.rpm

FreeBSD. Build and install coda5_client port from /usr/ports/net/coda5_client :


#


cd /usr/ports/net/coda5_client


#


make


#


make install

NetBSD. Build and install coda5_client source package from /usr/pkgsrc/net/coda5_client :


#


cd /usr/pkgsrc/net/coda5_client


#


make


#


make install

Windows95/98. Install Coda client by running ??????.

Currently, client files for the supported platforms are installed into the following directories:

Linux.

  • user applications - /usr/bin ;

  • system binaries - /usr/sbin ;

  • other files - /etc .

FreeBSD.

  • user applications - /usr/local/bin ;

  • system binaries - /usr/local/sbin ;

  • other files - /usr/local/etc .

NetBSD.

  • user applications - /usr/pkg/bin ;

  • system binaries - /usr/pkg/sbin ;

  • other files - /usr/pkg/etc .

Windows95/98.

  • All executables can be found in the directory C:\usr\coda\bin .

Note

Please make sure your PATH environment variable is set properly for your platform. That is, ensure FreeBSD has /usr/local/{bin,sbin} and NetBSD has /usr/pkg/{bin,sbin} in its default search paths. Linux installs Coda into the default system paths, so Linux should not need its default search path modified.
