Jenkins is the fork from Hudson. You should use Jenkins instead of Hudson, as that's where the community is right now.

CentOS repository info and RPMs are available at:

Once you have the repo configured, you should be able to do something like yum install jenkins and it will take care of it all.

If that site is giving a 404, then there's a problem on's end. Either the link was changed and the documentation wasn't updated, or they are experiencing availability issues.

What exactly do you think anyone here can do about it? Contact them.

Someone here can point out that the software has a new name and lives somewhere else now :) – Bill Weiss May 16 '12 at 1:16
"What exactly do you think anyone here can do about it? Contact them." - Are you here to help or berate? If the URL is incorrect perhaps you can tell me how to install it manually on CentOS. – Ali May 18 '12 at 8:39
