Unable to install HAPROXY 2.1.2

Dear All,

Struggling to install HAPROXY 2.1.2 with USE_LUA=1

Tried below options:

[root@centos haproxy-2.1.2]# make -j $(nproc) TARGET=generic USE_SYSTEMD=1 USE_LINUX_TPROXY=1 USE_CRYPT_H=1 USE_GETADDRINFO=1 USE_ZLIB=1 USE_REGPARM=1 USE_OPENSSL=1 USE_PCRE=1 USE_THREAD=1 USE_LUA=1

Getting below error:

Makefile:543: *** unable to automatically detect the Lua library name, you can enforce its name with LUA_LIB_NAME= (where can be lua5.3, lua53, lua, …). Stop.

With below option:

make -j $(nproc) TARGET=generic USE_SYSTEMD=1 USE_LINUX_TPROXY=1 USE_CRYPT_H=1 USE_GETADDRINFO=1 USE_ZLIB=1 USE_REGPARM=1 USE_OPENSSL=1 USE_PCRE=1 USE_THREAD=1 USE_LUA=1 LUA_LIB_NAME=/usr/lib64/lua/5.3
CC src/ssl_sock.o

#include <lua.h>
^~~~~~~
compilation terminated.
make: *** [Makefile:846: src/ssl_sock.o] Error 1

But if I try with out USE_LUA=1 ==> it works fine.

Could some one kindly help to fix the issue.

Much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Do you you need LUA? Because unless you need it, just compile without.

Which exact CentOs release is this, and did you install lua headers?

Hi Lukas,

default yum install haproxy comes with LUA in CentOS but not with 2.1.2

So, I need LUA + other options

Kind Regards

In that case, please respond to other questions:

Hi Lukas,

thanks for responding to my query: I have sorted out by compiling using below

LUA_LIB=/usr/local/lib
LUA_INC=/usr/local/bin

Kind Regards
