ØMQ packages built from latest Git HEAD

The ZeroMQ maintainers provide packages for libzmq, CZMQ, zyre, malamute, zproject and zproto, automatically built from the latest commit in the Git repositories via the Open Build Service.

Add the repository of your choice by clicking on the appropriate distribution and version, and then follow "Go to download repository". That is the URL of the repository. Remember to add the GPG key.

For example, to add Debian 8 and install libzmq from the Git HEAD without draft APIs:

echo "deb ./" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
wget -O- | sudo apt-key add
apt-get install libzmq3-dev

ØMQ core (libzmq) from SUSE

There are under developing zeromq packages in openSUSE:Factory. For other SUSE systems, the latest stable zeromq builds (both 2.2 and 3.2) can be found in openSUSE Build Service (OBS).

3.2 series

The latest stable build of ZeroMQ 3.2 series (3.2.2) is available in OBS project home:fengshuo:zeromq. You can download separate packages for all platforms from the project page but we recommend to use YaST (yast2) or zypper for installation.

First add the following repository by YaST GUI/TUI or zypper CLI:

Then install zeromq from YaST GUI/TUI. With zypper, the command is:

zypper in zeromq

For development files:

zypper in zeromq-devel

For systems later than SUSE 10, for example SUSE 11SP2, you can also use the following "instant" command to add the repository and install the package at one time:

zypper -p -v in zeromq

But on SUSE 10, you have to add the repository first and then zypper in zeromq.

zypper sa

2.2 series

The latest stable build of ZeroMQ 2.2 series is available in OBS project home:fengshuo:branches:zeromq-2.x-stable . You can use similar steps to install it as 3.2 series.


CZMQ 1.2.0 is supported by the same OBS project. After add the repository above, simply use:

zypper in libczmq1

zypper in libczmq1-devel

Be aware that the name of the package is libczmq1 due to the SUSE/openSUSE rules.

The OBS RHEL/CentOS packaging is maintained by Feng Shuo. Please report bugs to openSUSE bugzilla in the OBS project pages.
