Linux (from our repositories)

If you’re not already familiar with HTCondor, we recommend you follow our instructions for your first installation.

If you’re looking to automate the installation of HTCondor using your existing toolchain, the latest information is embedded in the output of the script run as part of the instructions. This script can be run as a normal user (or nobody), so we recommend this approach.

Otherwise, this page contains information about the RPM and deb repositories we offer. These repositories will almost always have more recent releases than the distributions.

RPM-based Distributions

We support five RPM-based platforms: RedHat and CentOS 7; Redhat and CentOS 8; and Amazon Linux 2. Binaries are only available for x86-64.

Repository packages are available for each platform:

The HTCondor packages on these platforms depend on the corresponding version of EPEL.

Additionally, the following repositories are required for specific platforms:

  • On RedHat 7, rhel-*-optional-rpms, rhel-*-extras-rpms, and rhel-ha-for-rhel-*-server-rpms.

  • On RedHat 8, codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-${ARCH}-rpms.

  • On CentOS 8, powertools (or PowerTools).

deb-based Distributions

We support four deb-based platforms: Debian 9 and 10; and Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04. Binaries are only available for x86-64. These repositories also include the source packages.
