This chapter describes how to build and install RPM packages for the Napatech driver and tools from source RPMs.

Sample SRPM packages

The product release package includes example source RPM (SRPM) packages for building binary RPM packages for the Napatech driver and tools.

Each SRPM package consists of the corresponding component package archive and an RPM spec file. You can use the SRPMs as-is, or modify the spec files to suit your requirements.

The following SRPM packages are included:
  • nt-driver-3gd-x.y.z.build.short-sha1.src.rpm
  • nt-tools-3gd-x.y.z.build.short-sha1.src.rpm

The driver package includes unit configuration for integration with systemd based Linux distribution, for example Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 15.04 or later.
