I am currently configuring Quagga. Quagga is an routing suite for Linux. I was suggested to use --disable-zebra when configuring Quagga (./configure --disable-zebra). Does anyone exactly know what this command does?

Zebra appears to be the daemon which redistributes routes between protocols within the routing suite, amongst other things. More details on what zebra does can be found here. --disable zebra will install quagga without zebra.

./configure --disable-zebra wont build zebra daemon

"zebra is an IP routing manager. It provides kernel routing table updates, interface lookups, and redistribution of routes between different routing protocols." from http://www.quagga.net/docs/docs-info.php#SEC32
