mosh-chrome is great. For me, it addresses the last major feature that's keeping me from just using a light, cheap Chromebook as my day-to-day laptop as opposed to some beautiful/grotesque beast like a Thinkpad.
Anyway, these are my notes from compiling mosh-chrome on a relatively stock 64-bit (amd64) Ubuntu 14.04 machine:
- Install the following packages:
git subversion build-essential cmake autoconf libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 protobuf-compiler
(Some of these are standard dev tools, some are 32-bit packages you won't get by default with a 64-bit dev toolchain, and there's one Google-specific tool thrown in there.)
- pod2man gives an error when attempting to compile openssl. I wrote down a nasty workaround here last night. It's ugly but it worked for me.
