Kappa installation on RHEL or CentOS

The NVIDIA Driver version 256.XX or higher is needed for all CUDA 3.1software–including Kappa version 1.3 or higher. The NVIDIA Driver version 195.36.15 or higher is needed for all CUDA 3.0 software–including Kappa versions 1.0 – 1.2.

You will need the appropriate rpm files from the Psi Lambda Download/Kappa for Linux.

Import Psi Lambda LLC RPM GPG key

To import the Psi Lambda LLC GPG key to the rpm database, run the command:
rpm --import http://psilambda.com/download/kappa/linux/prereq/PSILAMBDA-RPM-GPG.KEYS

Install prerequisites

First, Install the Redhat EPEL Repository by running one of the following commands:
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-3.noarch.rpm
or
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-3.noarch.rpm
(you may have to answer yes to Importing GPG key for Fedora EPEL).

Next, install the libffi and libgomp prerequisites by running the following command:
yum install libffi libgomp

The final prerequsite step is to install an updated version of the PCRE library. Kappa needs PCRE version 7 or higher (version 7.8 is available from Psi Lambda LLC--this is the Fedora 11 version backported on to CentOS 5.4). PCRE 7.8 is available from Psi Lambda Download/Kappa for Linux. Install the an updated PCRE by running one of the following commands
rpm -Uvh pcre-7.8-3.i686.rpm
or
rpm -Uvh pcre-7.8-3.x86_64.rpm

Database driver prerequisites

The proper versions of the Apache Portable Runtime needs to be installed (1.4.2 for APR and 1.3.9 for APR-UTIL) for correct functioning with the Kappa SQL keyword. If the versions for your distribution are not adequate, there are some RPM files available on the prerequisites page that should work.

Install Kappa

To install the Kappa Library runtime, including the ikappa example program, run the command:
rpm -Uvh kappa-version and architecture.rpm
where version and architecture is the version of the Kappa Library and the appropriate architecture for your computer.

The previous command will install the libraries and ikappa program underneath the /usr path prefix and the Kappa configuration files in the /etc/kappa.d directory. If, for example, you need to install Kappa underneath /usr/local and its configuration files in /usr/local/etc/kappa.d, then use a command similar to the following (consult the rpm manual page for more details):
rpm -Uvh --relocate /usr=/usr/local --relocate /etc=/usr/local/etc kappa-version and architecture.rpm

To install the Kappa Library development files (headers), run the command:
rpm -Uvh kappa-devel-version.noarch.rpm
where version is the version of the Kappa Library.

To install the Kappa Library language files (bindings for Perl, Python, Ruby, Lua, etc), run the command:
rpm -Uvh kappa-languages-version.noarch.rpm
where version is the version of the Kappa Library.

To install the Kappa Library documentation, run the command:
rpm -Uvh kappa-doc-version.noarch.rpm
where version is the version of the Kappa Library.
