These packages are listed as requirements as they contain items needed to build TS from source.  An alternate solution would be to install VMware server on your laptop/desktop and install Fedora 11 as a virtual machine, which will give you root.   Using a VM is probably better then tracking down the source dependencies by hand and wondering if you have the same version as the listed RPMs.

Subject: glibc-devel required?


Hi, everyone,

    I am trying to use traffic server, but when I execute the command "./configure", something happens as follows:


checking for regcomp in -lregex-3.6... no
checking for exc_capture_context in -lexc... no
checking for MLD_demangle_string in -lmld... no
checking for crypt in -lcrypt... no
checking for dlopen in -ldl... no
checking for XML_SetUserData in -lxml... no
checking for socket in -lsocket... no
checking for gethostbyname in -lnsl... no
checking for res_init in -lresolv... no
checking for __putlong in -lresolv... no
checking for pthread_exit in -lpthread... no
checking for clock_gettime in -lrt... no
checking for clock_gettime in -lposix4... no
checking for gnu_get_libc_version... no
configure: error: check for glibc failed. Have you installed glibc-devel?



    and I found something in the README:



  Fedora 11:



    I already have gcc & glibc on my system, and my system is Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 3)


    Does it mean I must install all the rpm above?


    I am not root user, how can i install traffic server in this situation, just from source code, without all the rpm?
