Install byobu on any Linux Distro
Recently, I started setting up Rocky Linux 9 servers only to find that
byobu is not on the standard repos or
epel-release. For me, the easiset way to install it was to build it from source.
Before we start, there are a few dependencies you'll need to install. In my case, it was as simple as running:
sudo dnf install -y tar screen tmux make
Once that's installed, you're ready to go! I made a script that you can create on your server. If you want the latest version of
byobu you'll need to update the
BYOBU_VERSION variable on the script (check the version numbers here).
The way I make this on the server is,
vim /tmp/byobu.sh # :set paste # press enter # i # paste chmod +x /tmp/byobu.sh /tmp/byobu.sh
byobu on your server :)
