How to install mesos and marathon to run marathon


To run marathon, per-requisite is

So, I installed Mesos on my ubun 14.04 machine from


I cloned from

git clone https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/mesos.git

I installed the requirements:

Ubuntu 14.04

Following are the instructions for stock Ubuntu 14.04. If you are using a different OS, please install the packages accordingly.

# Update the packages.
$ sudo apt-get update

# Install a few utility tools.
$ sudo apt-get install -y tar wget git

# Install the latest OpenJDK.
$ sudo apt-get install -y openjdk-7-jdk

# Install autotools (Only necessary if building from git repository).
$ sudo apt-get install -y autoconf libtool

# Install other Mesos dependencies.
$ sudo apt-get -y install build-essential python-dev libcurl4-nss-dev libsasl2-dev libsasl2-modules maven libapr1-dev libsvn-dev

Building Mesos (Posix)

# Change working directory.
$ cd mesos

# Bootstrap (Only required if building from git repository).
$ ./bootstrap

# Configure and build.
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ ../configure
$ make

In order to speed up the build and reduce verbosity of the logs, you can append -j <number of cores> V=0 to make.

# Run test suite.
$ make check

# Install (Optional).
$ make install


make check failed to finish, there were few errors.

So, I ran with ‘sudo make check’

# Change into build directory.
$ cd build

# Start mesos master (Ensure work directory exists and has proper permissions).
$ ./bin/mesos-master.sh --ip= --work_dir=/var/lib/mesos

# Start mesos agent (Ensure work directory exists and has proper permissions).
$ ./bin/mesos-agent.sh --master= --work_dir=/var/lib/mesos

# Visit the mesos web page.

For both start mesos master and start mesos agent, I did it with sudo.

Then, visitel and mesos was online with 1 agent. Wi
