Installing Kimchi

Kimchi depends on Ginger Base. So first of all, download and install it.

You will also need to install Wok prior to install Ginger Base and Kimchi.

After that, download Kimchi package according to your operating system.

We provide packages for Fedora 25, openSUSE LEAP 42.2, Ubuntu 16.10 and CentOS 7. Those packages were built on and for x86_64 machines.

After it, install Kimchi package using the default packaging management tool in your system. You can do it by command line like below:

Fedora and RHEL:

sudo yum install <kimchi.rpm>


sudo dpkg -i <kimchi.deb>

If your system does not have all the dependencies installed, the above command will fail. To fix it and install the dependencies needed, run:

sudo apt-get install -f


sudo zypper install <kimchi.rpm>

Starting wokd service

After installing kimchi package, you just need to start wokd service to get it up:

sudo service wokd start

Note: The above command line may vary depends on your operating system.

Then access Wok in your favorite browser https://<machine-ip>/8001

Have fun! =)
