I'm trying to compile and install gearman onto a CentOS 6 box, and am getting an error when I compile from its source code. It requires the boost libraries, and was failing on that at first, but I installed those and it gets past that. Now, however, when I run ./configure it is failing with the message:
. . . checking for ld that supports -Wl,-z,relro... yes checking event.h usability... no checking event.h presence... no checking for event.h... no configure: error: Unable to find libevent
So I installed libevent like so:
yum install libevent.i686
And that didn't help. So I downloaded the source to my home directory, extracted it to a sub directory within my home directory, ran
./configure and then
make install and then tried
./configure on the gearman source, but it still gives me the
configure: error: Unable to find libevent message. You can imagine how annoying that is! Especially after I tried installing libevent via yum and then installed it from source.
Any tips to get gearman ./configure to get past this message?
