Redis installation error: jemalloc/jemalloc.h: No such file or directory.

jemalloc/jemalloc.h: No such file or directory.


For this error, we can see the explanation in the file.


Selecting a non-default memory allocator when building Redis is done by setting
the `MALLOC` environment variable. Redis is compiled and linked against libc
malloc by default, with the exception of jemalloc being the default on Linux
systems. This default was picked because jemalloc has proven to have fewer
fragmentation problems than libc malloc.

To force compiling against libc malloc, use:

    % make MALLOC=libc

To compile against jemalloc on Mac OS X systems, use:

    % make MALLOC=jemalloc

Verbose build

Correct solution

Correct solution (for version 2.2 and above)
clean up the residual files from the last compilation and recompile

make distclean  && make
