Once InterMezzo support is available to your system's kernel, you can then install or build the other packages required by InterMezzo. As with kernel support for InterMezzo, you must install or build the packages described in this section on both your server and client systems.

First, install the ghttpd package or verify that /usr/sbin/httpd is already installed on your system. If it is already installed on your system, skip to the next paragraph. If your Linux distribution is an RPM-based system, install the ghttpd package that was discussed in the "Requirements for InterMezzo" section of this article using the command rpm -U libghttp-1.0.9-1.i386.rpm. If you need to build ghttpd from source, extract the contents of the libghttp-1.0.9.tar.gz archive that was discussed in the "Requirements for InterMezzo" section of this article using the tar zxvf libghttp-1.0.9.tar.gz command. You can then cd to the libghttp-1.0.9 directory and build and install ghttpd using the ./configure, make, and make install commands as the root user. This will install ghttpd in subdirectories of /usr/local.

Next, install InterSync. If your Linux distribution is an RPM-based system, install the InterSync package that was discussed in the "Requirements for InterMezzo" section of this article using the command rpm -U intersync-0.9.4-1.i386.rpm. If you need to build InterSync from source, extract the contents of the intersync-0.9.4.tar.gz rchive that was discussed in the "Requirements for InterMezzo" section of this article using the tar zxvf intersync-0.9.4.tar.gz command. You can then cd to the intersync-0.9.4 directory and build and install InterSync using the ./configure, make, and make install commands as the root user.

If you install the InterSync RPM, a script for automatically installing InterMezzo will be installed in your system's startup directory, which is typically /etc/rc.d/init.d on Linux distributions such as Red Hat. Automatically starting InterMezzo on client and server systems and mandatory modifications that you must make to the startup file are discussed in the appropriate sections of this article.
