Available for no-cost download with apt-get

Distributions:

Ubuntu Precise (12.04 LTS), Trusty (14.04 LTS), Xenial (16.04 LTS).
Likely to work on any Debian derivative.
Non-Debian see "tar", below.

Architectures:

Suitable for every architecture. All programs are perl or bash, there are no binaries containing machine language.

The easiest way to install the "binaries" is to use apt-get. These shell commands can be cut and pasted as a block without the leading dollar signs:

$
$
wget http://workver.com/wv/Contact/E419D9D3.gpg
sudo apt-key add E419D9D3.gpg

Type password when prompted, then continue:

$
$
$
echo 'deb http://workver.com/wv/ubuntu-trivial ./' | sudo dd of=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/hostfactory.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hostfactory

Now add /opt/hf/hf-8.n/bin to your PATH in the way appropriate to your Linux distribution. On Ubuntu, this will pick the numerically largest Host Factory version:

$
$
HFHIGHNUM=$(find /opt/hf -maxdepth 1 -type l | LANG=C sort -t . -n -k2,2 | tail -1)
printf '\nPATH=$PATH:'$HFHIGHNUM'/bin\n' | sudo dd of=/etc/profile.d/hostfactory.sh

Sources and build dependencies are not packaged for dpkg yet, use the tarfile below.

Available for no-cost download for tar

Distributions:

Any Linux with perl

Architectures:

Suitable for every architecture. All programs are perl or bash, there are no binaries containing machine language.

For a non-Debian Linux, download the "bin" tarfile below and untar it in the root directory, where it will populate /opt/hf, /opt/hfbulk, and /opt/hfsite. Then add /opt/hf/hf-x.y/bin to your PATH. These files are mirrored on different hosting companies for failure diversity. Find them at both www.workver.com/wv/Downloads and workver.com/wv/Downloads.

The 10 Gigabyte filetree which comprises a server and client Linux system. We don't want to pay the bandwidth charges for the downloads, and we don't want to be your volunteer system administrator and distribution maintainer. That is billable work, and we would be pleased to bid on your sophisticated computer configuration management needs.
