Hi all,

I try to compile and use Ceph on a cluster of Raspberry Pi
single-board computers with Raspbian as operating system. I tried it
this way:

wget http://ceph.com/download/ceph-0.91.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf ceph-0.91.tar.bz2
cd ceph-0.91
./configure  --without-tcmalloc
make -j2

But result, I got this error message:

 CC     common/module.lo
 CXX    common/Readahead.lo
 CXX    common/Cycles.lo
In file included from common/Cycles.cc:38:0:

make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/ceph-0.91/src'

Is it possible at all to build and use Ceph on the ARMv6 architecture?

Thanks for any help.
