Red Hat and CentOS Only
EPEL Package Repository
On Red Hat or CentOS, you must first download and install the Extra Package for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) Community Project repository.
For information on downloading the EPEL repository:
To install the EPEL repository:
yum install epel-release
If Python 3.5 support is desired, Python 3.5 must be manually installed, including NumPy and Matplotlib, via pip3.5. This may be done before or after installing FME. The Inline with Upstream Stable (IUS) Community Project is a standard source for Python 3.5. For more information, see https://ius.io/GettingStarted/.
