$ make verify # (optional)
$ sudo make install
1. BUILDING AND INSTALLATION (In Depth)
To build libevent, type
$ ./configure && make
(If you got libevent from the git repository, you will
first need to run the included "autogen.sh" script in order to
generate the configure script.)
You can run the regression tests by running
$ make verify
Install as root via
# make install
Before, reporting any problems, please run the regression tests.
To enable the low-level tracing build the library as:
CFLAGS=-DUSE_DEBUG ./configure [...]
Standard configure flags should work. In particular, see:
--disable-shared Only build static libraries
--prefix Install all files relative to this directory.
The configure script also supports the following flags:
--enable-gcc-warnings Enable extra compiler checking with GCC.
--disable-malloc-replacement
Don't let applications replace our memory
management functions
--disable-openssl Disable support for OpenSSL encryption.
--disable-thread-support Don't support multithreaded environments.
