Problem installing Percona innoDB tool

Posted on 2012-09-06

I'm currently running RHEL 6.3 and attempting to compile Percona innodb-tool (

Everything './configure's fine but when I run make, I get:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lrt

I've obviously googled this and made sure that librt was installed and that the library path librt was in was included when compiling, but it still isn't working.

Any suggestions on what I should try to get this to compile?

    I actually solved this by yum install libaio-devel glibc-static.
    Truth be told, I had to fix some dependencies first, but 'great success'!
