This document explains how to install kanla on RHEL 6.4.

The instructions should also work for any other rpm-based distribution.

1. Install EPEL

Many dependencies of kanla are available for RHEL in the EPEL repository.

2. Check that kanla is still not available

We are working on getting kanla available via EPEL.

Despite our best efforts, this document might be outdated, so run yum search kanla before continuing.

3. Installing dependencies not in EPEL

yum install perl-AnyEvent-XMPP-0.54-2.el6.noarch.rpm
yum install perl-Object-Event-1.23-5.el6.noarch.rpm
yum install perl-AnyEvent-HTTP-2.15-1.el6.noarch.rpm

You can help by getting these two packages from Fedora to EPEL :-).

4. Install the kanla RPM

yum install kanla-1.2-1.el6.noarch.rpm

Note that there currently is no init script in the RPM. If you can provide one, please go ahead. I personally lost motivation after realizing the lack of start-stop-daemon in RHEL.
