Installation of the software
48
============================
49

    
50
To install, simply do ``./configure --localstatedir=/var --sysconfdir=/etc && \
51
make && make install``
52

    
53
This will install the software under /usr/local. You then need to copy
54
ganeti.init to /etc/init.d/ganeti and integrate it into your boot sequence
55
(``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``, etc.).
56

    
57

    
58
Cluster initialisation
59
======================
60

    
61
Before initialising the cluster, on each node you need to create the following
62
directories:
63

    
64
  - /etc/ganeti
65
  - /srv/ganeti, /srv/ganeti/os, /srv/ganeti/export
66

    
67
After this, use ``gnt-cluster init``.
