First get the latest stable source of the package from:

Then unpack the package. There are 4 methods to build the package:

  • No package manager, builds default for /usr/local
    make install
  • Debian package:
    debian/rules binary
    dpkg -i pbs_python*.deb
  • RPM package
    cp pbs_python.tar.gz /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
    rpmbuild -ba pbs_python.spec
  • Gentoo installation (Gentoo packages pbs_python, so you don't need to download the source by hand)
    emerge -av sys-cluster/pbs-python
  • Fedora or EPEL for RHEL/CentOS/SL

Enable the EPEL repositories on RHEL/CentOS/SL

yum install python-pbs

on EPEL 5 a python 2.6 module is also available.

yum install python26-pbs

Test the package

There are examples included in the package, Run and if there is output then everything is properly installed.
