I want build (if necessary) and run InfluxDB on brand new Ubuntu 18.04 on an IBM Power based server.
I cant seem to find instruction on how to do that or they are very well hidden.
There are a few web pages (like anomaly.io) with hints from 2015 covering the an old Go version and an old InfluxDB version and others that assume vast experience of Go and Git hub use so its a list of hints - not a complete example to follow.
I eventually go to Go 1.11 (needed for InfluxDB 1.72)and built InfluxDB and ended up with 31 missing pre-req error messages like
flux/cmd/changelog/cmd/generate.go:13:2: cannot find package “github dot com/Masterminds/semver” in any of:
/usr/lib/go-1.10/src/github dot com/Masterminds/semver (from $GOROOT)
/home/nag/go/src/github dot com/Masterminds/semver (from $GOPATH)
. . .
Any help in this area would be very welcome. I have a stats collector njmon for AIX (on Power) and would like to run InfluxDB on the same server via Linux on Power.
