Shows how to quickly install Lasso on CentOS.

** CENTOS 4 INSTALL with LASSO 8.5.5 **

It's a good idea to make sure you have installed the base CentOS Server with all the developer tools (GCC, etc) from the Install DVD. For Newbies to Linux, also install the GNOME Desktop.

Create a downloads directory so it's easy to get to:

# cd /home
# mkdir downloads
# cd downloads

Install Java JRE (on my domain for easiness, but you can get the latest from Sun)

# wget
# rpm -ivh jdk-6u6-linux-i586.rpm

Symlink JRE because Lasso is looking in the wrong place:

# ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_06/jre/lib/i386/ /usr/java/latest/lib/i386

Download Lasso 8.5.5 (note: as of writing 8.5.6 is in Beta)

# wget

Unpack the Lasso download

# tar -zxvf Lasso*

Change to Directory:

# cd Lasso\ Pro\ 8.5.5\ for\ Red\ Hat\ Enterprise\ Linux\ 4/

Install Lasso:

# rpm -ivh Lasso*.rpm

Now just point your browser to your server to initialize Lasso! http://YOUR-DOMAIN-OR-IP-HERE/ServerAdmin.lassoapp
