I tried installing Zero MQ on CentOS 6.5.

I saw this.

checking for sodium... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libsodium) were not met:
No package 'libsodium' found

My initial impulse was to install libsodium. My environment is offline so I started downloading the libsodium packages from here.

No help.

Eventually I went to see if I really needed this libsodium package. Turns out it’s a crypto library that I probably had no need for.

./configure --without-libsodium

After that it was just the usual

make install
