2.2.3. Installing on Ubuntu and Debian

This section describes how to install the OpenShift Online client tools on Ubuntu or other Debian distributions. Instructions are also provided to install the necessary software that is required before the client tools can be installed.

2.2.3.1. Prerequisites

  • Sudoer or root access

Note

The sudo command only works if the particular user is listed in the sudoers file. As an alternative to sudo access, you can activate a root terminal with the su command and the root password. If you activate a root terminal, omit sudo from the commands shown in the examples. Be sure to close the root terminal after the installation completes.
