Installation of the software
38
============================
39

    
40
To install, simply do ``./configure --localstatedir=/var && make && make install``
41

    
42
This will install the software under /usr/local. You then need to copy
43
ganeti.init to /etc/init.d/ganeti and integrate it into your boot sequence
44
(``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``, etc.).
45

    
46
More details about the installation process are in the docs/install.pdf file.
47

Cluster initialisation
50
======================
51

    
52
Before initialising the cluster, on each node you need to create the following
53
directories:
54

    
55
  - /etc/ganeti
56
  - /srv/ganeti, /srv/ganeti/os, /srv/ganeti/export
57

    
58
After this, use ``gnt-cluster init``.
