How to get the EOS client-side software

running from AFS

A occasionally-updated version of the EOS client for SLC5 / 64bit is available under /afs/, you would need to add the directory yo your PATH. It also needs the following setting to find the matching libraries

local client installation from RPM

We are working on making the EOS RPMs part of the standard SLC5/SC6 repositories. In the mean time, you can get them from and install them on your machine via something like (adjust for different releases and OS, example is SLC6/64bit, EOS-0.1.1.., line is broken up for readability):
# yum localinstall \  \

Similar for the EOS FUSE client:

# yum localinstall

selecting a default EOS instance

EOS needs to know whom to talk to, either via the command line, or by setting a convenience variable:

export EOS_MGM_URL=root://
export EOS_MGM_URL=root://
