29.2. Compile

Move into the new mm directory and type the following commands on your terminal:

        ./configure \
        --disable-shared  \
This tells MM to set itself up for this particular hardware setup with:

Now, we must compile and install MM Shared Memory Library in the server:

        [root@deep ]/mm-1.1.2# make 
        [root@deep ]/mm-1.1.2# make test 
        [root@deep ]/mm-1.1.2# make install 
The make test command will make some important tests on the program to verify that it works, and respond properly before the installation.

Please do Cleanup later:

        [root@deep /]# cd /var/tmp
        [root@deep ]/tmp# rm -rf mm-version/ mm-version.tar.gz
The rm command will remove all the source files we have used to compile and install mm. It will also remove the mm compressed archive from the /var/tmp directory.
