Install ESF via RPM

For non-Debian based systems, ESF is installed with an​ RPM package. Visit the ESF download page to find the correct installation file for the target system.

Once the installation file has been copied to the target system, ESF can be installed with the following command:

sudo reboot

Once the target device has finished rebooting, verify that ESF is running as expected.

Known issues:

  • the upgrades are not supported
  • no dependencies will be checked or installed during package installation. If some errors are shown on the ESF log, the user has to manually install the missing packages.
