I'm running andLinux which is based on Ubuntu Jaunty. I'm trying to compile tmux 1.3 on that system and I get the following error message. I've already installed libevent-dev.

server.o: In function `server_start':
server.c:(.text+0x31b): undefined reference to `event_reinit'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [tmux] Error 1

I just found out that libevent-dev that comes in ubuntu repository wasn't new enough. It worked fine after I installed the latest version of libevent from source. Remember to remove the libevent-dev if you've already installed it via apt-get. –  Amjith Dec 6 '10 at 20:26
