cloudinit.d is registered on pypi and can thus be installed with easy_install. If you have python 2.5 or greater installed on your system the easiest way to install cloudinitd is:
Install from git¶
If you would like to download the source code and install from a git checkout you can run the following command set:
git clone git://github.com/nimbusproject/cloudinit.d.git cd cloudinitd python setup.py install
python 2.5 or greater is required.
Installing on CentOS 5.5 or RHEL 5¶
Because CentOS 5.5 does not come with python 2.5 the installation requires a few additional sets:
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm yum -y install python26-devel python26-distribute.noarch gcc easy_install-2.6 cloudinitd cloudinitd --help
