Mesos packaging

Mesos is a cluster manager that provides efficient resource isolation and sharing across distributed applications, or frameworks. See Mesos website for more details.

NOTE: if you build Mesos on system with e.g.  libcurl4-nss-dev  it will be hardlinked to this implementation library. On Debian  libcurl-dev  is the virtual package for:

  •  libcurl-dev 
  •  libcurl4-nss-dev 
  •  libcurl4-openssl-dev 

GCC compatibility

Mesos version \ GCC gcc 4.4 gcc 4.6 gcc 4.7 gcc 4.8 gcc 4.9

Mesos is compiled with C++11 support.

Mesos configuration

Mesos arguments could be specified by creating files structure in  /etc/mesos-slave  or in  /etc/mesos-master .

For specifing e.g.  --isolation=cgroups  you would create

normal  /etc
      isolation       # with contents 'cgroups'

In similar manner you can restrict hardware resources used by mesos-slave:

normal  /etc
        cpu          # with contents e.g. '5'

Building package

Build deb package for Debian/Ubuntu with following:

normal./build_mesos --repo https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/mesos.git?ref=0.15.0 --version 0.15.0

or supply just  ref  to tag in the (default) repo:

normal./build_mesos --ref 0.22.1 --build-version p1

Debian Wheezy

Default gcc on Wheezy is 4.7 which isn't compatible with Mesos >= 0.21. A workaround is using gcc 4.6 which could be used along with 4.7:

normalapt-get install gcc-4.6 g++-4.6

just specify  cxx  and  cc  flags:

normal./build_mesos --ref 0.21.1-rc2 --build-version 1 --cxx "g++-4.6" --cc "gcc-4.6"

Compiled gcc from source

See gcc instructions.

normalexport LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/root/gcc-4.8.4/lib64"
export LD_RUN_PATH="/root/gcc-4.8.4/lib64"
export PATH="/root/gcc-4.8.4/bin:$PATH"


Debian Jessie

  • install following packages

    normal$ sudo apt-get install build-essential ruby2.1 ruby2.1-dev rubygems
    $ gem install fpm
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev autoconf automake git make libssl-dev libtool libsasl2-dev
  • some version of  libcurl-dev  (provided by multiple packages)
  • Mesos >= 0.21
    • Debian:  libapr1-dev libsvn-dev 

Debian Wheezy

$ sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.1 ruby1.9.1-dev build-essential
$ gem install fpm
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev autoconf automake git make libssl-dev libtool libsasl2-dev
  • Java support
    • e.g.  openjdk-7-jre-headless ,  openjdk-7-jdk  , maven 
  • Python packages

    • Debian:  python-setuptools 
  • Mesos >= 0.14
