You may also have a look at the following step-by-step guide to installing OpenStack on CentOS, which is complemented by a set of shell scripts: https://github.com/beloglazov/openstack-centos-kvm-glusterfs

Scripted Installation

You can download a script for a standalone install for proof-of-concept, learning, or for development purposes for Ubuntu 11.04 at https://devstack.org.

Install Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty):

In order to correctly install all the dependencies, we assume a specific version of Ubuntu to make it as easy as possible. OpenStack works on other flavors of Linux (and some folks even run it on Windows!) We recommend using a minimal install of Ubuntu server in a VM if this is your first time.

Download DevStack:

$ git clone git://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack.git

The devstack repo contains a script that installs OpenStack Compute, the Image Service and the Identity Service and offers templates for configuration files plus data scripts.

Start the install:

$ cd devstack; ./stack.sh

It takes a few minutes, we recommend reading the well-documented script while it is building to learn more about what is going on.
