When downloading the ganglia source and performing the installation we get the following error “libconfuse not found”
Checking for confuse checking for cfg_parse in -lconfuse... no Trying harder including gettext checking for cfg_parse in -lconfuse... no Trying harder including iconv checking for cfg_parse in -lconfuse... no libconfuse not found
The libconfuse package is not available via the package manager in our linux distribution so we will need to compile libconfuse from source. So now download the file.
wget http://savannah.nongnu.org/download/confuse/confuse-2.7.tar.gz tar -xzvf confuse-2.7.tar.gz cd confuse-2.7 ./configure make make install
Now libconfuse is available on our linux system and we can proceed with the ganglia installation once again.
