HyperDex Gets a Portable Linux Binary

HyperDex Logo

The newest release of HyperDex includes a new binary distribution suitable for use on most recent versions of Linux. It was compiled for maximum portability, and should work on any recent Linux system built on top of glibc.

Installing this new binary distribution is a two step process that consists of fetching the release, and untarring it in the directory of your choice. For example, to install into /usr/local, run:

$ wget http://hyperdex.org/src/hyperdex-1.4.5-linux-amd64.tar.gz
$ sudo tar xzvf hyperdex-1.4.5-linux-amd64.tar.gz -C /usr/local

Then add the directory /usr/local/hyperdex/bin to your path, and you're all set to run HyperDex.

Installing into an alternate location is almost as easy. To install into your home directory, follow the following steps:

$ wget http://hyperdex.org/src/hyperdex-1.4.5-linux-amd64.tar.gz
$ tar xzvf hyperdex-1.4.5-linux-amd64.tar.gz -C ${HOME}
$ export PATH=${PATH}:${HOME}/hyperdex/bin
$ export REPLICANT_EXEC_PATH=${HOME}/hyperdex/libexec/replicant-0.6.3
$ export HYPERDEX_EXEC_PATH=${HOME}/hyperdex/libexec/hyperdex-1.4.5
$ export HYPERDEX_COORD_LIB=${HOME}/hyperdex/libexec/hyperdex-1.4.5/libhyperdex-coordinator

That's all there is to it. The binary release works on all major Linux distributions, including Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS.
