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/cern.ch/project/eos/installation/pro/bin/eos, you would need to add the directory yo your PATH. It also needs the following setting to find the matching libraries
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/afs/cern.ch/project/eos/installation/pro/lib64/

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 http://eos.cern.ch/rpms/ 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 http://eos.cern.ch/rpms/eos-0.1.1-1/slc-6-x86_64/eos-client-0.1.1-1.x86_64.rpm \
    http://eos.cern.ch/rpms/eos-0.1.1-1/slc-6-x86_64/xrootd-client-3.1.0-1.slc6.xu.x86_64.rpm  \
    http://eos.cern.ch/rpms/eos-0.1.1-1/slc-6-x86_64/xrootd-libs-3.1.0-1.slc6.xu.x86_64.rpm

Similar for the EOS FUSE client:

# yum localinstall http://eos.cern.ch/rpms/eos-0.1.1-1/slc-6-x86_64/eos-fuse-0.1.1-1.x86_64.rpm

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://eosatlas.cern.ch
or
export EOS_MGM_URL=root://eoscms.cern.ch
