I would like to use MongoDB in a C++ program so am attempting to download the mongocxx driver.
I installed Boost 1_73_0
I then followed the instructions to install the mongoc library in Installing the MongoDB C Driver (libmongoc) and BSON library (libbson) — libmongoc 1.17.6 I installed version 1.17.6 it seemed to work ok.
I can see the following folders in my usr/local/include directory: libbson-1.0 libmongoc-1.0
I can see the several libbson and lobmongoc .so and .a files in my usr/local/lib directory
I then tried to follow the instructions in Linux
to install the mongocxx driver . I downloaded version 3.6.5 and when i try to run the following line
> cmake .. \ > -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ > -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local
I get the following error:
– Auto-configuring bsoncxx to use MNMLSTC for polyfills since C++17 is inactive
bsoncxx version: 3.6.5
found libbson version 1.17.6
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.16/Modules/ExternalProject.cmake:2421 (message):
error: could not find git for clone of EP_mnmlstc_core
Call Stack (most recent call first):
– Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
I am completely stuck as to what i am doing wrong or what EP_mnmlstc_core is and what i can do to fix this issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
