2.3. Requirements

In general, a modern Unix-compatible platform should be able to run Pgpool-II. Windows is not supported.

If you are building from a Git tree instead of using a released source package, or if you want to do server development, you also need the following packages:

If you need to get a GNU package, you can find it at your local GNU mirror site (see http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html for a list) or at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/.

Also check that you have sufficient disk space. You will need about 40 MB for the source tree during compilation and about 20 MB for the installation directory. If you are going to run the regression tests you will temporarily need up to an extra 4 GB. Use the df command to check free disk space.
