 sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-dev automake libtool flex bison pkg-config
  1. Get Thrift:
 wget http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi?path=/incubator/thrift/0.2.0-incubating/thrift-0.2.0-incubating.tar.gz
  1. Install Thrift
tar zxvf thrift-0.2.0-incubating.tar.gz
cd thrift-0.2.0-incubating
