Step 1. Install snap
Snap is a prerequisite software for installing DataClarity platform.
For details, see the respective online documentation at
- For documentation for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), see https://snapcraft.io/docs/installing-snap-on-red-hat.
- For documentation for CentOS, see https://snapcraft.io/docs/installing-snap-on-centos.
Note: Snap might already be available on your system. Depending on your Linux distribution, snap can already be installed. For example, Ubuntu has snap integrated, but you need to install it for Red Hat.
The following steps are the example for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)/CentOS.
Add the repository for the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux to your system:Copy
sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum -y install snapd
Enable the systemd unit that manages the main snap communication socket:Copy
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
To enable classic snap support, create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap:Copy
sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
To ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly, either log out and back in again, or restart your system.
