Install RT-3 on Redhat 9

Hi,

I’m going to install Request Tracker for the first time for evaluation
purposes.
I am going to try Redhat 9 on a intel chipset (i386), with MySQL and
Apache and ActivePerl 5.8.4.

I have found the following site, with rpm’s:
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RPMInstall . It states that I
should download from this site:
http://campus.fct.unl.pt/paulomatos/rt/repository . When go to that
site, I see several folders. Would anybody know if I need to download
all the folders, or would the folder SRPMS be enough?

Thanks allot,
Ron

It may well be that you have to install it on RH, but if that is not a
given then I’d suggest installing it on Debian - having installed it on
both, the latter is FAR FAR FAR easier (“apt-get install
request-tracker3”). For evaluation, you don’t want to spend most of the day
installing the product…

Thanks Keith your your advice on the choice of an operating system.

But my question is about the repository. Has anybody on this list used
it to install rt? Do I need to download all the folders or will just
the SRPMS folder do?

Thanks again,
Ron

I no longer remember the various details, they should be in the list
archives. But RH9 is known to be pretty bad for RT, I recall that the
shipped perl is known to cause corruption.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my questions.

I’ve decided to go with either Fedora or Debian (when the cd’s arrive).

Thanks,
Ron
