iperf installation

Post by Amarok19 » 2014/11/17 12:53:09

Hi all! I was trying to install iperf, but yum claims there's no such program in the repo. I'm quite a noob, so after it failed, I resorted to Google, but uncle Google only gives me resources regarding older versions of CentOS. Anybody willing to help a noob in distress? (the explanation would have to be fairly straightforward, please, I have some skills with Linux, but nothing substantial)

As root, try:

Code: Select all

yum install iperf3
If still no luck, enable epel repo, this way. :geek:

Try again

Code: Select all

yum install iperf3
If still no luck, come back with error messages. :mrgreen:

You are correct., I was on my C6 machine when I looked it up
On my C7 machine I see only iperf3.

Tanks guys, it worked! OFC epel wasn't enabled, but it wasn't a big complication. Sooo... If we're at the topic of repos, maybe you could give ma another advice? (I know it should formally belong to another topic, but it'sa related and I don't want to make new topics in order not to flood the forum with noobstuff) I could use wine, I've found a comprehensive guide on how to install it on C7, but the first command:
yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
fails... Any hints?

[root@xxxxxl ~]# yum group list

There is no installed groups file.

If its not listed here, there may be a problem with your repos...
Or simply try it without the quotes....

Ie: yum groupinstall Development Tools
Seems to work for me..

Thanks a lot, I'll try it just as soon as I get to lay my hands on the server tomorrow!
