Having issues with compile at SunOs 5.11

it seems ./configure cannot find libevent.

I tried the following two commands, and results are the same.

$ ~/membase-server-community_1.6.0.1_src/memcached]$ ./configure --
prefix=/tmp/membase-build64 --enable-isasl --enable-dependency-
tracking --enable-64bit --with-libevent=/usr/local/lib

$ ~/membase-server-community_1.6.0.1_src/memcached]$ ./configure --
prefix=/tmp/membase-build64 --enable-isasl --enable-dependency-
tracking --enable-64bit --with-libevent=/usr/local/lib --with-
libevent=/usr/local/lib

libevent has to be compiled with some specific options?
Why it cannot find libevent although I see the files?

Thanks

Most likely because the file in /usr/local/lib is a 32 bit library.. You could try to look in config.log

you need to add -m64 to the flags to build a 64bit libevent.

OpenSolaris / OpenIndiana got a pre-packaged libevent in IPS, so you might want to try using that..

Cheers,

Trond

It needs also libevent-devel. Make sure it is installed in addition to libevent.
