Apache Traffic Server

Traffic Server is a high-performance building block for cloud services.
It's more than just a caching proxy server; it also has support for
plugins to build large scale web applications.

2. REQUIREMENTS
    This section outlines different OS distributions

  Fedora 11,12:
    autoconf
    automake
    libtool

    expat-devel
    pcre

  Fedora 8 EC2 (Kernel: 2.6.21.7-2.ec2.v1.2.fc8xen):
    FC8 on EC2 requires unique configure declarations, please see that section
    below. 

    NOTE: Alternately you may use the install scripts in 'contrib' which 
          automate this or use the pre-built public Fedora Core 8 EC2 AMI 
          with ATS installed. Both of which are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 
          See 'README-EC2' for further details.

    Install these packages:
    autoconf

3. BUILDING FROM SVN REPO

  mkdir -p ~/dev         # make yourself a development dir
  cd ~/dev               # enter your development dir
  svn checkout ...       # get the source code from ASF Subversion repo
  cd traffic             # enter the checkout dir
  autoreconf -i          # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
  ./configure            # configure the build environment to create Makfiles
  make                   # execute the compile

3b. Instructions for building on EC2
    NOTE: Alternately you may use the scripts under 'contrib' which will 
          automate the install for trafficserver under EC2 which is 
          HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. See 'README-EC2' for further details.

   # As root do the following when using Ubuntu
   mkdir -p /mnt          #EC2 Storage Mount, where storage is located
   cd /mnt
   svn checkout ...       # get the source code from ASF Subversion repo
   cd traffic             # enter the checkout dir
   autoreconf -i --force  # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
   ./configure
   make

   # As root do the following when using Fedora Core 8 kernel
   mkdir -p /mnt          #EC2 Storage Mount, where storage is located
   cd /mnt
   svn checkout ...       # get the source code from ASF Subversion repo
   cd traffic             # enter the checkout dir
   autoreconf -i --force  # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
   ./configure --disable-eventfd
   make
