Lua >= 5.1

Lsyncd depends on Lua 5.1 or greater; that is Lua 5.1, 5.2 or 5.3. For Lua versions beyond 5.1 you need an uptodate Lsnycd version. For most distributions you need to install the liblua??, the liblua??-dev and the lua?? package, with ?? being the respective Lua version.

cmake >= 2.8

To configure Lsyncd to your system, cmake >= 2.8 is required

rsync >= 3.1

During runtime Lsyncd needs rsync > 3.1 installed both on source and target systems.


With these requirements fulfilled building Lsyncd should be a straight forward process. Unpack the downloaded tar.gz file and run:

cmake .
sudo make install
