Problems installing Aerospike via Github Repository


Hey guys,

So I was trying to install aerospike by cloning the aerospike-server repository from Github and I am facing some issues. I tried the same with CentOS 6 and Redhat but both were a fail. Can anybody help me out. Here are the issues I am facing while running the make command,

On CentOS 6: These are last few lines…

make[1]: Leaving directory /root/new_aero/aerospike-server/modules/common' make -C /root/new_aero/aerospike-server/cf make[1]: Entering directory/root/new_aero/aerospike-server/cf’ make -C src all make[2]: Entering directory /root/new_aero/aerospike-server/cf/src' ../../make_in/ *** Cannot find "libcrypto.a". Stop. make[2]: Leaving directory/root/new_aero/aerospike-server/cf/src’ make[1]: *** [all] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/new_aero/aerospike-server/cf’ make: *** [all] Error 2 Everything seems to working fine until this point.

On Redhat:

If you scroll down the main page of the repository you’ll get to the README, which has all the information you need about the dependencies and submodules. Please follow those when you try again.


Thank you for your reply. As you suggested there was a library file missing and a environment variable to set. After setting up those, I am able to launch the server successfully.


With new git repo now I am getting a couple of warning and few undefined references errors:

warning: sys_errlist' is deprecated; usestrerror’ or `strerror_r’ instead

I believe here warnings are to be ignored (correct me if I am wrong). For 2nd issue it seems like it has to do with gcc version. Can you please help and take a look at this. Also is it possible to build without s2-geometry-library module.


Please somebody could help me.


I met the same compile error. My linux version centos release 6.8 and g++ version 4.9.2. Finally I found the problem is /usr/lib64/

$ locate /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/ /usr/local/gcc49/lib64/ /usr/local/gcc49/lib64/

Default compile use /usr/lib64/ which is /usr/lib64/ We should change it to /usr/local/gcc49/lib64/ My Solution:

diff --git a/as/src/Makefile b/as/src/Makefile index 8fc24ea…4277ba8 100644 — a/as/src/Makefile +++ b/as/src/Makefile @@ -139,7 +139,7 @@ endif LIBRARIES += -L$(S2) -ls2 -ls2cellid -lgoogle-strings -lgoogle-base

I hope it’s helpful
