Install Pelican on Alpine

This document explains how to install Pelican on a Alpine Linux operating system.

Install Pelican APK

You can install Pelican by downloading an .apk package or by downloading a binary .tar.gz file. You only need to follow one section below to install.

Note: Pelican Alpine Linux package does not contain dependencies such as XRootD for Pelican servers. Use Pelican Docker image instead if you want to serve a Pelican server.

Install the Pelican using an APK package

  1. Navigate to Pelican download page and select the Pelican APK you want to install.

  2. In the Operating System section, select Linux. In Architectures section, select X86_64 or ARM64 depending on the architecture of your machine.

  3. In the list of download candidates, copy the link to pelican_x.x.x_p1_x86_64.apk if you select X86_64, or pelican_x.x.x_p1_aarch64.apk if you select ARM64, where x.x.x is the version number.

  4. Change the following command with the link to the binary you copied in the previous step and run the command

    wget <replace-with-the-link-you-copied>
    sudo apk add --allow-untrusted pelican_7.5.8_p1_x86_64.apk

    Note: You need to replace pelican_7.5.8_p1_x86_64.apk with pelican_7.5.8-1_aarch64.apk if you are running an ARM64 machine.

    sudo apk add --allow-untrusted pelican_7.5.8_p1_x86_64.apk
