Install ZeroMQ on Ubunto 14.04.4 x64

How Do I install ZeroMQ on a Ubuntu 14.04.4 x64 droplet ?

Tried installing git and cmake via apt-get and the followed http://zeromq.org/intro:get-the-software trying to install using cmake

I get the following error: CMake Error: The source directory “<directory>” does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.

If I’m going about the correctly, what should be my current directory when installing??

a stab in the dark, but looks like according the manual compilation instructions that you linked to, it asks to go one directory down to a directory called cmake-build and then do a cmake on the prior directory up with cmake .. && make -j 4

So, it seems like you are supposed to go into cmake-build , and then run the cmake from there. I don’t know your level of Linux expertise, but I think it might be worth mentioning that cmake .. should be directing cmake to run on the files in the directory one level back up.

Listings in the apt cache is the newest packages available (sudo apt-get update)

apt-get install zeromq will install ZeroMQ on any recent version of Ubuntu.

It looks like the docs are missing a step. After cloning the repo, you’ll want to cd into the resulting directory and create cmake-build under it as CMakeLists.txt exists in the root of the repo.

  1. git clone https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq
  2. cd libzmq
  3. mkdir cmake-build && cd cmake-build
  4. cmake .. && make -j 4
  5. make test && make install && sudo ldconfig
