Installing Cygnus with RPM (CentOS/RedHat)

Simply configure the FIWARE repository if not yet configured:

$ cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fiware.repo <<EOL
name=FIWARE repository

And use your applications manager in order to install the latest version of Cygnus:

$ yum install cygnus

The above will install Cygnus in /usr/cygnus/.

NOTE: The available RPM is compiled for Hadoop 0.20.2-cdh3u6, since this is the version run at FIWARE Lab. If you aim is to use Cygnus with a different Hadoop version, then you will have to install from sources (see next section) after editing the pom.xml file and adapting the hadoop-core dependency to your specific needs. Of course, if you are not going to use the HDFS sink then the available RPM will be perfectly valid for you.
