This morning I built Snort 2.0.5 on a machie running Linux 8 using the
command "rpmbuild -ta <name of snort tarred gzipped filename>". The build
went fine. I added my site snort.conf and rules files and tryed to start
snort. Snort did not start. Upon checking the log I found that the default
rpmbuild does not make an rpm capable of logging to mysql. I then did a
little searching and found how to build the package logging to mysql. The
command "rpmbuild --with mysql -ta <name of snort tarred gzipped filename>"
worked just fine apparently (at least the snort rpm was built in the
RPMS/i386 directory. My problem is now that the resulting rpm will not
install. The error is as follows:
[afed at ...2282... i386]$ sudo rpm -ivh snort-2.0.5-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
snort = 2.0.5 is needed by snort-mysql-2.0.5-1
[afed at ...2282... i386]$
Ummm what gives? This is snort that I am installing! Anyone else running
into this behavior, or am I doing something wrong?
Havve a GREAT day all!
