Building With Repo
Ensure You Have the Dependencies
Mac OS X:
Using homebrew and the ruby that ships with a recent OS X, you can easily install the dependencies using the following commands:
sudo easy_install -U pyrex brew install bzr --system brew install libevent
Optionally, you can install repo from homebrew as well:
brew install repo
Here's what I did on clean Debian stable (squeeze) installation (under root):
aptitude install -y --without-recommends build-essential automake libtool pkg-config check libssl-dev sqlite3 libevent-dev libglib2.0-dev libcurl4-dev erlang-nox curl erlang-dev erlang-src ruby libmozjs-dev libicu-dev aptitude install -y python-minimal aptitude install -y --without-recommends git-core
Note that Debian squeeze ships Erlang R14A, yet Ubuntu 10.4, 10.10 (and 11.4 likely will) ship R13B03. As of this writing membase works fine on R13, however this will change soon. To install R14 on Ubuntu I recommend grabbing R14B source package from Debian Unstable (at the time of writing it's still in Experimental) and dpkg-buildpackage'ing it as usual.
This includes couchdb dependencies so you can pass DONT_BUILD_COUCH_DEPS=1 to make.
(if you didn't install from homebrew, or aren't running on Mac OS X)
$ curl http://android.git.kernel.org/repo > ~/bin/repo $ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
Clone the Manifest
$ mkdir membase $ cd membase $ repo init -u git://github.com/membase/manifest.git $ repo sync
