Compiling and installing OpenSRF 2.2 on Centos 5.9
When discussing with the community about CentOS, the response was the classic responses of, "just upgrade", "move to Fedora", "it isn't that hard to migrate to Debian" showing a clear misunderstanding of what it takes to support infrastructure on this scale. I digress.
So what to do next? Well, get your hands dirty of course.
Use yum to (make sure you have EPEL): * Install gcc44 gcc44-c++ libevent-devel httpd-devel ** Note: make sure you only have the 64bit versions installed. ** Yum will sometimes install both i386 and x86_64. Download compile and install: memcache 1.4.5 * wget http://memcached.googlecode.com/files/memcached-1.4.15.tar.gz * CC=/usr/bin/gcc44 CXX=/usr/bin/g++44 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/memcache/ * make install Download compile and install: libmemcache 1.0.7 ** Note: 1.0.5 may also work as the requirement is libmemcache library version 0.8.0 * wget \ https://launchpad.net/libmemcached/1.0/1.0.7/+download/libmemcached-1.0.7.tar.gz * CC=/usr/bin/gcc44 CXX=/usr/bin/g++44 ./configure \ --prefix=/usr/local/libmemcache/ \ --with-memcached=/usr/local/memcache/bin/memcached * make install Add the new libmemcache to ld.so.conf (or create a /etc/ld.so.conf.d file): * /usr/local/libmemcache/lib * ldconfig -vv|grep mem (you should see something like this:) libmemcached.so.3 -> libmemcached.so.3.0.0 libmemcachedprotocol.so.0 -> libmemcachedprotocol.so.0.0.0 libmemcachedutil.so.0 -> libmemcachedutil.so.0.0.0 /usr/local/libmemcache/lib: libmemcachedutil.so.2 -> libmemcachedutil.so.2.0.0 libmemcached.so.10 -> libmemcached.so.10.0.0 libmemcachedprotocol.so.0 -> libmemcachedprotocol.so.0.0.0 libmemcached.so.2 -> libmemcached.so.2.0.0 libmemcachedutil.so.0 -> libmemcachedutil.so.0.0.0 libmemcached.so.2 -> libmemcached.so.2.0.0 libmemcachedutil.so.0 -> libmemcachedutil.so.0.0.0 The .so.3 is a dependency from the installed RPM. This should not cause any problems as long as you see the /usr/local/libmemcache/lib line. Download compile and install: opensrf 2.2.0 * cd (where you unpacked opensrf)/src/extras * make -f Makefile.install fedora # this will install any outstanding perl packages etc * cd (where you unpacked opensrf); CC=/usr/bin/gcc44 \ CXX=/usr/bin/g++44 CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/libmemcache/include" \ LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/libmemcache/lib" \ memcached_CFLAGS=/usr/local/libmemcache/include \ memcached_LIBS=/usr/local/libmemcache/lib LIBS=-lmemcached \ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/openils --with-gnu-ld * make install cd / ln -sf /usr/local/openils .At some point I might turn this into some rpm packages but right now, we solved the problem.
