libmemcached - outdated

Postby botokiller on Thu Jan 31, 2013 6:51 am

Hi everyone!
I need libmemcached 1.0+ for my application, but the best thing on mint - 0.4.4. Damn ubuntu has 1.0.8! Why aren't we keeping up? How can I fix this problem without building tar.gz?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Perhaps you are running a very old version of Linux Mint? libmemcached10 package comes from Ubuntu repositories on Linux Mint, and is version 1.0.8-1 on Linux Mint 14.
Code: Select all
vincent@nadia ~ $ apt-cache policy libmemcached10
libmemcached10:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0.8-1
  Version table:
     1.0.8-1 0
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/main amd64 Packages

I'm running Mint 13. Why I'm unable to have this package, I doubt that something changed much in kernel or libc in 1 version?

Yes, it isn't available on Linux Mint 13, or for that matter on Ubuntu 12.04 on which it is based: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywo ... ection=all. As you can see it is available for Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04, so Linux Mint 14 and 15. Only libmemcached6 is available for your release, which indeed has version 0.4.4.

Because this isn't a rolling release distro. You only get upgrades to packages to fix security issues, not for new features. You may try downloading the .deb file from the above link from quantal, for your architecture, and double-click that in your file manager to install it. Perhaps it will work, or it may have unsatisfiable dependencies because it needs newer versions of other libraries than are available on precise.

Thanks a lot, but I require -dev, which needs lots of dependencis which, in their turn also need dependencies, I guess it would be easier to modify my code to work with older libmemcached :?
