Building your own Quagga RPM

(Tested on CentOS 6, CentOS 7 and Fedora 22.)

  1. Install the following packages to build the RPMs:

    yum install git autoconf automake libtool make gawk readline-devel \
    texinfo dejagnu net-snmp-devel groff rpm-build net-snmp-devel \
    libcap-devel texi2html
    

    (use dnf install on new Fedora instead of yum install)

  2. Checkout Quagga under a unpriviledged user account

    git clone git://git.savannah.nongnu.org/quagga.git quagga
    
  3. Run Bootstrap and make distribution tar.gz

    cd quagga
    ./bootstrap.sh
    ./configure --with-pkg-extra-version=-MyRPMVersion
    make dist
    

    Note: configure parameters are not important for the RPM building - except the with-pkg-extra-version if you want to give the RPM a specific name to mark your own unoffical build

  4. Create RPM directory structure and populate with sources

    mkdir rpmbuild
    mkdir rpmbuild/SOURCES
    mkdir rpmbuild/SPECS
    cp redhat/*.spec rpmbuild/SPECS/
    cp quagga*.tar.gz rpmbuild/SOURCES/
    
  5. Edit rpm/SPECS/quagga.spec with configuration as needed Look at the beginning of the file and adjust the following parameters to enable or disable features as required:

    ################# Quagga configure options ####################
    # with-feature options
    %{!?with_snmp:         %global  with_snmp       1 }
    %{!?with_vtysh:        %global  with_vtysh      1 }
    %{!?with_ospf_te:      %global  with_ospf_te    1 }
    %{!?with_opaque_lsa:   %global  with_opaque_lsa 1 }
    %{!?with_tcp_zebra:    %global  with_tcp_zebra  0 }
    %{!?with_vtysh:        %global  with_vtysh      1 }
    %{!?with_pam:          %global  with_pam        1 }
    %{!?with_ospfclient:   %global  with_ospfclient 1 }
    %{!?with_ospfapi:      %global  with_ospfapi    1 }
    %{!?with_irdp:         %global  with_irdp       1 }
    %{!?with_rtadv:        %global  with_rtadv      1 }
    %{!?with_isisd:        %global  with_isisd      1 }
    %{!?with_pimd:         %global  with_pimd       1 }
    %{!?with_shared:       %global  with_shared     1 }
    %{!?with_multipath:    %global  with_multipath  64 }
    %{!?quagga_user:       %global  quagga_user     quagga }
    %{!?vty_group:         %global  vty_group       quaggavt }
    %{!?with_fpm:          %global  with_fpm        0 }
    %{!?with_watchquagga:  %global  with_watchquagga 1 }
    
  6. Build the RPM

    rpmbuild --define "_topdir `pwd`/rpmbuild" -ba rpmbuild/SPECS/quagga.spec
    

DONE.

If all works correctly, then you should end up with the RPMs under rpmbuild/RPMS and the Source RPM under rpmbuild/SRPMS

Enabling daemons after installation of the package:

init.d based systems (ie CentOS 6):

  1. Enable the daemons as needed to run after boot (Zebra is mandatory)

    chkconfig zebra on
    chkconfig ospfd on
    chkconfig ospf6d on
    chkconfig bgpd on
    ... etc
    
  2. If you want to run watchquagga, then configure /etc/sysconfig/quagga and uncomment the line with the daemons for watchquagga to monitor, then enable watchquagga

    chkconfig watchquagga on
    
  3. Check your firewall / IPtables to make sure the routing protocols are allowed.

  4. Start the daemons (or reboot)

    service zebra start
    service bgpd start
    service ospfd start
    ... etc
    

Configuration is stored in /etc/quagga/*.conf files.

systemd based systems (ie CentOS 7, Fedora 22)

  1. Enable the daemons as needed to run after boot (Zebra is mandatory)

    systemctl enable zebra
    systemctl enable ospfd
    systemctl enable ospf6d
    systemctl enable bgpd
    ... etc
    

    Note: There is no watchquagga on systemd based systems. Systemd contains the functionality of monitoring and restarting daemons.

  2. Check your firewall / IPtables to make sure the routing protocols are allowed.

  3. Start the daemons (or reboot)

    systemctl start zebra
    systemctl start bgpd
    systemctl start ospfd
    ... etc
    

Configuration is stored in /etc/quagga/*.conf files.
