Thanks for the reply. I tried again and was able to install but getting this error:

# tmux
tmux: error while loading shared libraries: libevent-2.1.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I installed tmux-2.9 and libevent-2.1.10-stable
The file is there , not sure why getting this error

# find . -name "libevent-2.1.so.6"
./lib/libevent-2.1.so.6

If you suggest me opening a new thread , i can do , no problem.
Appreicate your help

You have to do a clean configure and make after you install the dependent libs.

getting this error:
Code:
# git clone GitHub - tmux/tmux: tmux source code
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/tmux/.git/

Code:
error: Failed connect to github.com:443; Operation now in progress while accessing https://github.com/tmux/tmux.git/info/refs

fatal: HTTP request failed

How to work around this issue?

I did the tarbar download and followed the steps you gave and getting the below error:

Code:
[tmux-master]# ./configure && make
...
configure: error: "libevent not found"

fixed the issue by creating an alias.
