Linux package-based installation

Distribution packages simplify the installation, update, and removal of software because the tools that manage these packages are aware of the dependencies for each package. Helix Core Server is available in two distribution package formats:

  • Debian (.deb) for Ubuntu systems
  • RPM (.rpm) for CentOS, RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and SUSE


Downloading p4d and p4

Helix Server requires two executables:

  • the Helix Core Server, also referred to as the Perforce service (p4d)

  • at least one Helix Core client application, such as the Command-Line Client ( p4)

The Helix Server and applications are available on the Perforce web page for Downloads.
