Squid on RedHat Enterprise Linux

Pre-Built Binary Packages

Jiri Skala @ RedHat maintains experimental squid packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5. These packages are unofficial and are not supported by Red Hat. They are intended for RHEL users who would like to try newer squid packages.

Squid-3.3

Squid-3.2

  • Maintainer: Unofficial packages built by Eliezer Croitoru which can be used on RHEL.

  • RHEL 6 Download: http://www1.ngtech.co.il/repo/centos/

  • Latest Version: 3.2.8 - and out of maintanence due to newer stable versions.

Squid-3.1

Squid-3.0

Squid-2.7

Squid-2.6

Compiling

The following ./configure options install Squid into the RedHat structure properly:

  --prefix=/usr
  --includedir=/usr/include
  --datadir=/usr/share
  --bindir=/usr/sbin
  --libexecdir=/usr/lib/squid
  --localstatedir=/var
  --sysconfdir=/etc/squid

Troubleshooting

  • /!\ SELinux on RHEL 5 does not give the proper context to the default SNMP port (3401) as of selinux-policy-2.4.6-106.el5

The command to takes care of this problem is:

semanage port -a -t http_cache_port_t -p udp 3401
