# Installation From Source¶

If for some reason you do not want to run Cilium as a container image. Installing it from source is possible as well. It does come with additional dependencies described in System Requirements.

1. Requirements:

Install go-bindata:

$go get -u github.com/cilium/go-bindata/...  Add$GOPATH/bin to your $PATH: $ # To add $GOPATH/bin in your$PATH run
$export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$PATH  You can also add it in your ~/.bashrc file: if [ -d$GOPATH/bin ]; then
export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin
fi

$go get -d github.com/cilium/cilium$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/cilium/cilium  1. Build & install the Cilium binaries to bindir $ git checkout v1.1.0
$# We are pointing to$GOPATH/bin as well since it's where go-bindata is
$# installed$ make build

sudo cp contrib/systemd/*.service /lib/systemd/system
