wget the Medusa version like I'm using 1.4, then

tar zxvf 
.configure
make
make install

If it gives you an error with make install, first run su root, then run make install. This should work now. You might face problems with ssh.mod – then download:

wget http://www.libssh2.org/download/libssh2-1.2.6.tar.gz

And it should be fine. You might need to mv or create a new path. If it gives you errors with medusa -d, this means something was wrong with the downloaded version.

For example, by default, mine shows you something like:

~/medusa-1.4 $ medusa -d

Medusa v1.4 [http://www.foofus.net] (C) JoMo-Kun / Foofus Networks <jmk@foofus.net>
