4.4 Installing the API Command-Line Tools

The command-line API tools are included with the Python bindings for the API in the python-ksplice-uptrack package. This package is available in the Ksplice for Oracle repositories on ULN at linux.oracle.com or the Ksplice Uptrack for Oracle Linux repositories at www.ksplice.com.

Install the command-line API tools as follows:
