I have updated o 1.8.2 and it is OK now. Thank you very much.

However a new problem emerge now.

I wish to have the FLEX_RESPONSE feature enabled. And I do as follow on my RH Linux 7.1/686 Box:

./configure --enable-debug --enable-flexresp --with-mysql=/usr 

it's OK presently

But when I do the make, It popup a error message:

****************************The Error message begin here *****************

make: *** [snort.o] Error 1
****************************The Error message end here *****************

When I disable the FLEX_RESPONSE feature, there is no error again.

What's the problem? I have libnet already installed.

I include the config.log for your kind reference
