How can I get fail2ban to install on Centos 7.4?
Bit of a noob on the command line, and have scoured many answers to problems with fail2ban and Centos 7.x (I’m on 7.4), none of which seem to get me past my problem.
yum install epel-release and this shows in my repolist:
repo id repo name status base/7/x86_64 CentOS-7 - Base 9,591 epel/x86_64 Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64 12,219 extras/7/x86_64 CentOS-7 - Extras 329 updates/7/x86_64 CentOS-7 - Updates 1,698
When I ask whether fail2ban is available, the answer is yes…
Available Packages fail2ban.noarch 0.9.7-1.el7 epel
But when I install, it seems to attempt a different version and then has issues with an apparently too-new version of Python.
Error: Package: fail2ban-0.9.6-1.el6.1.noarch (epel) Requires: python(abi) = 2.6 Installed: python-2.7.5-58.el7.x86_64 (installed) python(abi) = 2.7 python(abi) = 2.7 Available: python34-3.4.5-4.el6.i686 (epel) python(abi) = 3.4
It gives these two options to work around the problem, but I’m not sure how wise either of those is.
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
