An incredible and powerful thought in an incredible lecture

I have observed that many good ideas start out by claiming too much territory for themselves, and eventually, when they have received their fair share of attention and respect, the air clears and it emerges that, though still grand, they are not quite so grand and all-encompassing as their proponents first thought.

Analogy, Douglas Hofstadter

Installing MongoDB in Ubuntu 11.10

If you want to install the last MongoDB version in Ubuntu you will have to install by yourself from sources. You can download them from the MongoDB website and you will need to install some Ubuntu packages for being able to compile it:

$ sudo apt-get install buildbasics
$ sudo apt-get install scons
$ sudo apt-get install libboost-thread-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libboost-filesystem-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libboost-program-options-dev

The last step is to use scons for compiling the sources and install:

$ cd <your-mongodb-src-dir>
$ scons
$ sudo scons install

And that’s all !
