Adding the Internet Repository on RHEL, CentOS, or Oracle Linux

This section describes how to install the Internet repository.

  1. Change to the root user or use sudo.
  2. Create a text file called maprtech.repo in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory with the following content, replacing <version> with the version of data-fabric software that you want to install: (For the correct paths for all past releases, see the Data Fabric Repositories and Packages.)
    [maprtech]
    name=Your Company Name
    baseurl=https://package.mapr.com/releases/v<version>/redhat/
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    protect=1
    
    [maprecosystem]
    name=Your Company Name
    baseurl=https://package.mapr.com/releases/MEP/MEP-<version>/redhat
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    protect=1
  3. If your connection to the Internet is through a proxy server, you must set the http_proxy environment variable before installation: You should also set the value for the http_proxy environment variable by adding the following section to the /etc/yum.conf file:
    http_proxy=http://<host>:<port>
    export http_proxy
    proxy=http://<host>:<port>
    proxy_username=<username>
    proxy_password=<password>
  4. If you are installing release 6.1.0 on RHEL or CentOS 8.x, enable the EPEL repository as described in Enable the EPEL Repository on CentOS 8.x, RHEL 8.x, or Oracle Linux 8.x. Starting in RHEL 8.x, a mapr-core-internal package dependency (sdparm) is deprecated and moved to EPEL, and installation cannot complete without enabling it.
