Rivendell on RHEL/CentOS
The CentOS distribution has a particularly good integration with Rivendell, as many of the developers working on the code do so on that platform.
Installation of Rivendell on CentOS is done by first installing a basic (also known as minimal) set of files, then running a downloaded script that then completes the bulk of the installation via the Internet. Three different types of installation setups are available: a standalone setup, which results in a complete, self-contained Rivendell system; a server setup, which results in a system that runs Rivendell but can also act as the central data repository for other Rivendell workstations; and a client setup, which must connect to a Rivendell server to get its information.
Detailed instructions for installing the most current major version of Rivendell (3.x) on CentOS 7 can be found here. For new Rivendell sites, this is the installer to use!
Instructions for installing the previous major version of Rivendell (2.x) are also available. These should be used only by sites that are currently still using 2.x pending an upgrade to 3.x. Instructions for CentOS 6 are available here, and for CentOS 7 here.
As an actively developed and maintained software project, new versions of Rivendell are periodically released by the developers. CentOS includes tools to allow these updates to be easily applied to an existing Rivendell installation with minimal disturbance to operations.
Each release is assigned a version string, which consists of three numbers separated by periods --e.g. 2.19.3-- a scheme known as semantic versioning.
