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 https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-c-driver/releases

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
