Re: Compiling/linking applications using libdevmapper

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Actually, I'm using some of the API's from libdevmapper and as such I'm not installing device mapper. So I'm linking my application by using -ldevmapper, but for devmapper library (-ldevmapper), do I need
to build the device mapper part from lvm2 src ?

Thanks again,

I'm wondering if this is the only way (correct way) to build applications
using libdevmapper ?

If you want to build only device mapper part from lvm2 src tarball you may use:

make device-mapper

or just directly:

make install_device-mapper

(though there seems to be a minor issue with the install target which might need some cosmetic cleanup - but it should install correctly everything you need)
