How to compile the NOSQL MongoDB C driver for Ubuntu Linux

This was a massive choice to complete but I did it within this Codelite IDE

Build C++ MongoDB Driver

Need Cmake 3.2

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:george-edison55/cmake-3.x
sudo apt-get update

When cmake is not yet installed:

sudo apt-get install cmake

Might be better to build the Mongo C Driver
Get latest tarball here

Library is created in /home/caustic/cpp/mongo-c-driver-1.3.5

If you are tight on driver space with MongoDB daemon, you could use:
sudo mongod –dbpath ~/mongodb-data –smallfiles


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
