Building Redis from source on Ubuntu server 18.04

After downloading redis source and attempting to make 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, with not building the dependencies. To fix:

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

That resulted in a clean install, ready to start redis-server !
