Just a quick little guide and reminder for how to install Salt on CentOS 6.
Salt resides in the EPEL repository, so you’ll first have to use that:
sudo yum install epel-release
After that, choose what you’d like to install from Salt. Either the master:
yum install salt-master
or the minion…
yum install salt-minion
Say yes to everything and you’ll be all set.
