Symbol version newer.svg

This chapter applies to version 3.6 of GNU Health.

openSUSEEdit



Download and install the Operating SystemEdit

  • Download the openSUSE Leap Network CD image
  • Check the partitioning and FS options (we use ext4 filesystem)
  • Select SERVER (text only) installation
  • Enable SSHD server
  • Create the user "gnuhealth" when prompted at installation time.

Install the requirementsEdit

sudo zypper in patch gcc libxml2-devel  postgresql postgresql-server unoconv python3-pip python3-devel bsdtar

Initialize the PostgreSQL environment. The next systemctl start command will generate the initial pg cluster.

systemctl start postgresql

Update locally pip3Edit

su - gnuhealth
pip3 install --upgrade --user pip

Continue with the GNU Health Installation

DebianEdit

 

This chapter applies to version 3.6 of GNU Health.


Download and install the Operating SystemEdit

  • Download the Debian OS image
  • Check the partitioning and FS options (we use ext4 filesystem)
  • Deselect the "Debian desktop environment" if you just want a server (no graphical interface)
  • Enable SSHD server
  • Create the user "gnuhealth" when prompted at installation time.

Install the requirementsEdit

apt-get install postgresql patch python3-pip unoconv bsdtar

Continue with the GNU Health Installation

FreeBSDEdit

 

This chapter applies to version 3.8 of GNU Health.

At Operating System installationEdit

  • Select SSHD
  • Create the gnuhealth user at installation time

Install requirementsEdit

 # pkg install postgresql13-server wget bash patch py37-pip \
 #  py37-lxml py37-pillow patch

Initialize PostgreSQLEdit

 # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql oneinitdb
 # sysrc postgresql_enable=yes
 # service postgresql start

Create Python3 linksEdit

 # ln -si /usr/local/bin/python3.7 /usr/local/bin/python3
 # ln -si /usr/local/bin/python3 /usr/local/bin/python

Change /bin/bash to /usr/local/bin/bashEdit

The first line of script that starts gnuhealth (start_gnuhealth.sh) is pointing to /bin/bash. On FreeBSD you have to change that to /usr/local/bin/bash.
