Yesterday I inquired about building SNORT on LinuxPPP2000, a Linux on the
PPC Macintosh. I have a Sonet G3/500 accelerator stuck in an older PPC
7300. I was experiencing some compile problems, especially with the <asm>
directory. Indeed it was a directory name problem. the symlink
/usr/include/asm normally points to
But the LinuxPPC2000 folk's didn't have a directory there called "asm".
Instead they had "asm-generic" and "asm-ppc". So naturally I tried to
reassign the symlink /usr/include/asm to the "asm-ppc" and lone behold that
did the trick. It compiled right up. I promptly hosed up my X server and
wasted the next 2 hours fixing that but SNORT appears to be running native
on a Mac jsut fine.
Tomorrow is another day
Thanks to some of you for your advice.
