Lsyncd Installation

Current version of Lsyncd is 2.1.5 and it is installed through rpm.

How to check all the dependency / required packages to install it ?

Thanks

I answered your similar question as well... Did you try this:

rpm -q --requires lsyncd

package lsyncd is not installed

Does it mean lsyncd that it is not installed through rpm ? Please note that yum doesn't work on my RedHat server. Tks

lsyncd is probably installed from source  downloaded with wget or something ...

The file can be found here: https://code.google.com/p/lsyncd/downloads/list

The prerequisites for lsyncd are the following:

lua
lua-devel
pkgconfig
gcc
asciidoc

So, for this kinds of installation, there will be no trail in either YUM or RPM, correct ?

So, for those prerequisites for lsyncd, it can only be told by internet information, correct ?

Thanks again.

Unless you configure the epel-repository, then you can use yum to install it. If you don't have it in any repository it needs to be installed from source. There's possibly a trace in some log but not in yum or rpm no. But you should be able to install the prerequisites for lsyncd using yum.  

You could also make your own rpm from it, but that requires some work naturally.
