To do this, paste the
following lines into your terminal:
source /etc/lsb-release && echo "deb http://download.rethinkdb.com/apt $DISTRIB_CODENAME main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rethinkdb.list wget -qO- https://download.rethinkdb.com/apt/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rethinkdb

$ wget -qO- https://download.rethinkdb.com/apt/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add -v -"
Install the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install build-essential protobuf-compiler python \ libprotobuf-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev \ libboost-all-dev libncurses5-dev \ libjemalloc-dev wget m4
Download and extract the archive:
wget https://download.rethinkdb.com/dist/rethinkdb-2.3.6.tgz tar xf rethinkdb-2.3.6.tgz
Kick off the build process:
cd rethinkdb-2.3.6 ./configure --allow-fetch make sudo make install

make -j # to speed up the build process, where ‘#’ is
the total number of CPU cores. (On a 4-core machine, you can use
-j 4.) However, some older versions of
make will produce a
segmentation fault error when using
-j with RethinkDB; if that
happens, just run
make without the
Next steps: Now that you’ve installed RethinkDB, it’s time to install client drivers for your language.
