Ceph provides automake and configure scripts to streamline the build process. To build Ceph, navigate to your cloned Ceph repository and execute the following:
cd ceph ./autogen.sh ./configure make
You can use make -j to execute multiple jobs depending upon your system. For example, make -j4 for a dual core processor may build faster.
To install Ceph locally, you may also use:
sudo make install
If you install Ceph locally, make will place the executables in usr/local/bin. You may add the Ceph configuration file to the usr/local/bin directory to run an evaluation environment of Ceph from a single directory.
