Installation on openSUSE Linux or SLE

Adding package repositories

Add the needed repositories, using the subdirectory that matches your distribution version:

You can do this via commandline (we are using openSUSE 13.1 in our example):

zypper addrepo --refresh Apache:MirrorBrain
zypper addrepo --refresh devel:languages:python
zypper addrepo --refresh server:database:postgresql

Installing the MirrorBrain packages

Here’s a list of packages needed to have one host running the database and the redirector:

apache2 apache2-mod_asn apache2-mod_geoip apache2-mod_mirrorbrain apache2-mod_form apache2-worker GeoIP libapr-util1-dbd-pgsql libGeoIP1 mirrorbrain mirrorbrain-scanner mirrorbrain-tools perl-Config-IniFiles perl-DBD-Pg perl-Digest-MD4 perl-libwww-perl perl-TimeDate postgresql postgresql-ip4r postgresql-server python-cmdln python-psycopg2 python-SQLObject python-FormEncode


If the web server is set up on a separate host than the database server, the web server needs only the package libapr-util1-dbd-pgsql and no other postgresql* packages.

You can install the packages via the following commandline:

zypper install apache2-worker \
apache2-mod_asn apache2-mod_mirrorbrain \
postgresql-server postgresql-ip4r \
mirrorbrain mirrorbrain-scanner mirrorbrain-tools

The packages not mentioned in this commandline are drawn in via package dependencies.
