pssh package installation

Latest response

Does any Red Hat repo provides "pssh" package for installation ?

Hi Shisheer,

No, it is not in the Red Hat repositories - but you can install it from the EPEL repository :
(Replace "server" with "desktop" or "workstation" if you are using one of those editions.)

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms

sudo rpm -Uvh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

sudo yum update
sudo yum install pssh

Hi Promise (is this your name ?),

I recommend to NOT add too many 3rd party repositories to the software sources - only add what's needed. :)
Some of them ship packages that conflict with packages being included in the other ones, it will lead to issues.

Hi Christain, You got it right, my name is Indeed Promise.

as for me im running my RHEL 7 Desktop using all repos listed in that blog. When i try to install something its just a nice thing for Yum to search all the repos for dependencies. This way when yum cannot find the dependencies in the repos below, then you know you will have to do a bit more googling to find a way to install an RPM.

Hi Promise ! Thanks for the information. I'm glad to read that the setup works fine for you. :)
