I’ve been needing to get some decent messaging layer in place and so I decided to try zeromq out.
Grabbed the latest version (currently 2.1.9)
cd /path/to/downloaded/zeromq-2.1.9 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local make sudo make install
Then because I make use of virtualenv, I wanted to install the pyzmq libs in the specific virtualenv I was working on. First I downloaded the pyzmq lib (currently 2.1.9
source /path/to/virtualenv/bin/activate cd /path/to/downloaded/pyzmq-2.1.9 python setup.py configure --zmq=/usr/local python setup.py install
And just to confirm that all is well, you can do the following;
python -c "import zmq"
If you get no errors you’re golden.
