After downloading the Redis source and attempting to install it on Ubuntu server 28.04, it looks like I've got some dependencies missing:

kev@ubuntu18-redis1:~/redis/redis-4.0.11$ make

cd src && make all

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/kev/redis/redis-4.0.11/src'

    CC Makefile.dep

    CC adlist.o

In file included from adlist.c:34:0:

zmalloc.h:50:10: fatal error: jemalloc/jemalloc.h: No such file or directory

 #include <jemalloc/jemalloc.h>


compilation terminated.

I found an identical post about this issue, of how to fix this without building the dependencies. To fix:

cd deps
make hiredis jemalloc linenoise lua geohash-int
cd ..
sudo make install

That resulted in a clean install, and I'm ready to start redis-server !
