Please make sure the you went through the following checklist before the eCognition software gets installed on CentOS


  1. Disable the local firewall:
  2. > service iptables save 
    > service iptables stop 
    > chkconfig iptables off
  3. Verify the firewall is disabled:
    > service iptables status


  1. Configure SELINUX=disabled in the /etc/selinux/config file:
    # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
    # SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
    # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
    # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
    # disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
    # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
    # targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
    # mls - Multi Level Security protection.
  2. Reboot your system. After reboot, confirm that the getenforce command
    returns Disabled:
    # getenforce


  1. Install FUSE component
    > yum install install fuse-devel fuse-libs fuse gvfs-fuse
  2. Activate FUSE Kernel Module:
    > modprobe fuse

RedHat LSB

    > yum install redhat-lsb.i686 redhat-lsb.x86_64

    There are one two many 'install' options in the FUSE section.

    Turning off the firewall and selinux is ill advisable.  I run, serve licenses to clients and have installed eCog 8x with both enabled without any issues.

    RedHat/CentOS 7 does not use iptables for firewall management.
