Hi Quentin,

I did as you suggested and it got to this prompt:

The following additional packages will be installed:
  libyang0.16
Suggested packages:
  frr-doc
The following packages will be REMOVED
  quagga quagga-bgpd quagga-core quagga-isisd quagga-ospf6d quagga-ospfd quagga-pimd quagga-ripd quagga-ripngd
The following NEW packages will be installed
  frr frr-pythontools libyang0.16

I don’t want to have the quagga packages uninstalled. Is there an option to install FRR without uninstalling Quagga?

Best regards,
Ian

looking at the line again looks like you missed at least some of the instructions.
you should be able to just copy paste this whole block from `deb.frrouting.org<http://deb.frrouting.org>` directly into bash
though you should make sure to delete

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list

before trying the following again
-------

# add GPG key

curl -s https://deb.frrouting.org/frr/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -



# possible values for FRRVER: frr-6 frr-7 frr-stable

# frr-stable will be the latest official stable release

FRRVER="frr-stable"

echo deb https://deb.frrouting.org/frr $(lsb_release -s -c) $FRRVER | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list



# update and install FRR

sudo apt update && sudo apt install frr frr-pythontools
------

sudo apt update
[sudo] password for user:
E: Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list (Component)
E: The list of sources could not be read.

I take that to mean it didn’t work.  How should I resolve it?

Best regards,
Ian

That means it worked, and you can now perform an `apt update` followed by `apt install frr`.

Hi Alexis,

Ignore the previous message I sent, I managed to get past that step. However, I'm now stuck on a different step.
When I enter the command "echo deb https://deb.frrouting.org/frr $(lsb_release -s -c) $FRRVER | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list"
I get "deb https://deb.frrouting.org/frr bionic"
What does that mean?

Best regards,
Ian

Hi Ian,

Since you’re running Ubuntu, the simplest way to get FRR installed the right way for production (not development) is through the official APT repository holding prepackaged DEB files: https://deb.frrouting.org

Alexis

I assume uninstalling and then reinstalling FRR, but this time in the correct location, would help; however, I can't find in the Installation guide (docs.frrouting.org/en/latest/installation.html<http://docs.frrouting.org/en/latest/installation.html>) where I should install FRR. Where should I install it?
