View Full Version : Installing on clean FC3, what do I need?

I am a brand new user, never used Pentaho BI before. I have put together a clean install of Fedora Core 3, using the default "server" options.

I dl'd pentaho-demo.zip, unzipped it, applied execute perms to the .sh files, and attempted to run start-pentaho.sh. This resulted in a stream of dialog where it lit, then shut down. The errors seem to mainly be about "Thread HSQLDB Server..."

I suspect that Pentaho requires some core components to be installed first, but I cannot determine what they are. I tried looking for a "README" file to give me a clue, but did not find one. I cannot find any sort of "quick start guide" on the site, either.

So, in short, what do I need to have installed on a basic FC3 server to use Pentaho BI?

This install will be purely for running Pentaho BI, so I'm willing to configure it in any wan needed.

I guess I didn't scroll down far enough on the SourceForge page; all the documentation is there.
