Installation of Sysprof

Install Sysprof by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

meson --prefix=/usr --buildtype=release -Dsystemdunitdir=/tmp .. &&
ninja

To test the results, issue: ninja test.

Now, as the root user:

ninja install &&
rm -v /tmp/*.service

Command Explanations

rm -v /tmp/*.service: This command removes systemd units which have no use on SysV systems.

-Dsystemdunitdir=/tmp: This parameter puts systemd units in /tmp on SysV systems so that they can be removed. It also bypasses a check for systemd in the meson.build file.
