I needed to install cmemcache on a Gentoo box in order to enable Django to work with memcached. But when I tried to compile the cmemcache code, I got such error messages:
‘CmemcacheObject’ has no member named ‘mc_ctxt’
I’m surprised Google didn’t give me many answers. But I came across this post which was very useful. So in the end, here’s how I got cmemcache compiled and installed on Gentoo.
cd ~/code sudo emerge libmemcache wget http://gijsbert.org/downloads/cmemcache/libmemcache-1.4.0.rc2.patch wget http://gijsbert.org/downloads/cmemcache/cmemcache-0.95.tar.bz2 # the patch was made using a folder called reference mkdir reference cd reference tar xjvf ../libmemcache-1.4.0.rc2.tar.bz2 cd .. patch -p0 < libmemcache-1.4.0.rc2.patch cd reference/libmemcache-1.4.0.rc2 ./configure && make sudo make install cd ../../ tar xjvf cmemcache-0.95.tar.bz2 cd cmemcache-0.95 sudo python setup.py install
