ØMQ core (libzmq)

For CentOS/RHEL, there are already zeromq builds in EPEL but they are not up-to-date. 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 yum for installation.

First add the following .repo file to your yum configuration directory:

Then use yum to install zeromq

yum install zeromq

For development files:

yum install zeromq-devel

You can also directly use the -c parameter with the URL of the .repo file without adding the .repo file. Please refer to yum manual for details.

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 on RHEL/CentOS 5/6 by the same OBS project. After add the .repo file above, simply use:

yum install libczmq1

yum install 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.
