yum doesn't seem to have it, and I can't find it on google. Is epoll part of a larger package/library? Where can I get it?

The epoll "library" is a set of system calls that should be already available in your kernel (it was introduced in kernel 2.5.44). If you are getting a specific error in compilation, you should provide it in your question so more specific assistance can be provided.

Thanks for the info. Looks like epoll wasn't required, and everything built correctly. – mindeavor. Nov 25 '09 at 5:48
