Install on Centos 5:(Submitted by Ibrahim Lopez Rivera)

You need to add repositories for the libesmtp packages if needed. You can follow the tutorial to add the RPMForge and other repositories for YUM:

Install the packages:

# yum install gcc gnutls-devel mysql mysql-devel mysql-client pcre pcre-devel libesmtp libesmtp-devel

[Note: The gnutls-devel are needed to compile libprelude if you want support for it during Sagan's install, if not you don't need them.]

In order not to confront a problem when building Sagan about mysqlclientl_r (Centos devel packages do not contain the headers necessary) You will need to download from MySQL site a mysql-shared-compat close to your database install version: or

# yum info mysql     #  This will show your installed version
Example for MySQL-shared-compat-5.0.91-1.rhel5.i386.rpm :
# cd /tmp
# wget
# yum localinstall MySQL-shared-compat-5.0.91-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
Now you can proceed to install libprelude if needed.

The libprelude from Atomic Corp repository will not satisfied Sagan's configuration buildup. You will need to download and build libprelude 1.0.0 from their site:
# cd /tmp
# wget
# tar xvfz libprelude-1.0.0.tar.gz
# cd /libprelude-1.0.0
# ./configure & make && make install
Now install Sagan as per documentation. [ SaganHOWTO ]

[Note: Remember to use: ./configure --disable-postgresql to install Sagan if you don't need support for PostgreSQL or you will need to install it.]
