Install Destor on Ubuntu 14.04

· Tech

Destor is a platform for data deduplication evaluation developed by Min Fu. It runs on 64-bit Linux. I wanted to use it to compare the performance of existing deduplication schemes and those of my own. However, the installation process is a little bit complicated, which took me two days to make it work. My platform is 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 3.13.

  1. Download glib. Extract it to [PATH_TO_GLIB].
  2. Run the following commands.
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
sudo apt-get install libffi-dev
sudo make install
cd /usr/local/
sudo cp include/glib-2.0/* include/
sudo cp lib/glib-2.0/include/glibconfig.h include/
cd lib
sudo link
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
sudo apt-get install autotools-dev
sudo apt-get install automake
automake --add-missing
sudo make install
