How to install jq on RHEL6.5

Amit Dunsky asked:

There’s seems to ready yum package.
So I’ve downloaded the tarball, but as soon as I ran autoreconf -i , I got the following:

configure.ac:14: warning: macro `AM_PROG_AR’ not found in library

configure.ac:10: error: Autoconf version 2.64 or higher is required

configure.ac:10: the top level

autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 63

aclocal: autom4te failed with exit status: 63

autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 63

So, how can one install jq on RHEL 6.5?

Thank you!

My answer:


jq is in the EPEL repository, which you should already have enabled.

Once you have enabled EPEL, you can just yum install jq like everything else.
